Each year, BtoB Magazine, a leading national publication for marketing strategists, exclusively honors the achievements of the top business-to-business agencies and interactive technology firms in the United States. Qualifying honorees for 2011 had to offer full-service interactive marketing communication services and were judged on exceptional work performed in 2010, their percentage of business that is b-to-b, client wins, and demonstrated growth of the business.
