Grand Avenue Transportation of Nashville Wins National Award

The Public Relations Society of America awarded the 2013 Bronze Anvil Award to Grand Avenue Transportation and Seigenthaler Public Relations for launching a campaign promoting Nashville as The “It”
City, an exciting destination for visitors looking for vibrant nightlife, thriving businesses, and easy access to popular tourist destinations. The campaign was launched by Grand Avenue CEO Carl Haley to pay tribute to the city whose growth is fueling his full service transportation business.

“As the number of people visiting Nashville has grown, so has Grand Avenue,” said Haley. “When I tell people about our company and our city, they either tell me about their last visit or their plans to come here soon. Nashville’s reputation for hospitality—a century in the making—has captured the attention of the world.  This city has earned a well-deserved spotlight, and that is what we sought to celebrate in this campaign.”

Haley said the campaign was designed to reinforce Nashville’s growth as a tourist spot, but also to build the city’s brand as a great place to buy a home, build a business or find a creative outlet. “We feel very fortunate to have creative and forward-thinking clients like Carl Haley who set an ambitious vision not only for this campaign but for his company,” said Beth Seigenthaler Courtney, CEO of Seigenthaler Public Relations. "We are so grateful to be able to partner with Grand Avenue to celebrate the city that makes us so proud.”

The national Bronze Anvil Award has been given by the Public Relations Society of America for more than 40 years, celebrating the “best of the best” in public relations tactics, reflecting the growing scope, creativity and importance of strategic public relations.
