New Bern, NC:  High Tide Creative (HTC), eastern North Carolina’s premier advertising and marketing firm, was recently recognized for their work by the North Carolina Travel Industry Association (NCTIA) and the Carolina Healthcare Public Relations & Marketing Society.

“We are very grateful to be honored for our marketing and outreach campaigns,” said Tom Lewis, Vice President and Creative Director of High Tide.  “Our objective first and foremost is meeting our clients’ expectations, so knowing that we created campaigns that not only met our clients’ needs, but also garnered praise from leaders in our industry is very rewarding.”

During the NCTIA awards banquet in Charlotte, NC, High Tide was awarded Best Advertising for a mid-size market for their work with the New Bern-Craven County Convention & Visitors Center, a campaign that can currently be seen running throughout Eastern North Carolina on billboards.  The thematic visuals showcase nightlife, paddle boarding, dining and experiencing all the fun and flavors of New Bern.

The NCTIA was established over 60 years ago and is the only member-based statewide organization that encompasses all aspects of the travel and tourism industry.

High Tide was also recently alerted that they are winners of two Wallie Awards from the Carolina Healthcare Public Relations & Marketing Society for their work with Carolina Orthopedics of New Bern. The winning entries were for the television advertising portion of their awareness campaign and the Dr. Reichard Referral Promo.

“We have received so much positive feedback on the TV commercials and the Shoe Promotion,” stated Tracy Watkins, Practice Manager at Carolina Orthopedics. “I’m so pleased that High Tide is being recognized for their outstanding work.”

The Carolina Healthcare Public Relations & Marketing Society awards banquet will be held at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville later this month. The Carolina Healthcare Public Relations & Marketing Society founded in 1973 is one of the largest affiliated societies in the country. Their strategy is to promote professional development by seeking to equip healthcare public relations and marketing professionals with the skills, knowledge and tools they need to be successful.
