LAS VEGAS – November 13, 2019 – The 2019 Automotive Communications Awards were announced last week at the Women in Auto Care Awards Ceremony and reception, which took place during AAPEX 2019 in Las Vegas. The awards are focused on business-to-consumer and business-to-business categories, which recognize companies and agencies that provide automotive information through outstanding advertising, marketing and public relations efforts.


“Capturing attention in today’s crazy, busy world is no easy task,” said Sarah Shelstrom, committee member, Women in Auto Care. “The companies that submitted for this year’s Automotive Communication Awards by far have done the best job of utilizing new media, creative content and ‘wow’ factor to capture that mind share. The companies continue to ‘wow’ us year after year. We congratulate the winners and look forward to next year’s submissions.”
