Mountain View, Calif., May 12, 2011 – Airfoil Public Relations, an independent public relations agency specializing in public relations and marketing communications for technology companies, was recognized by theHolmes Report as a Corporate Media Relations Gold SABRE Awardfinalist for its thought leadership campaign for mobile media technology company MobiTV Inc.

 Airfoil’s submission chronicled its work to boost MobiTV Inc.’s share-of-voice in the media, an area its competitor had been controlling. As a result of refined company messaging and focused media relations, Airfoil and MobiTV Inc. were able to more than double the company’s share-of-voice in the first year and assume the lead in most industry conversations. In terms of real business results, MobiTV Inc. formed new partnerships with carriers and content providers, all the while increasing subscribership. Ultimately, MobiTV Inc. has not only become the industry leader, but also serves as validation for the viability of mobile television, as the industry saw a 44 percent increase in mobile viewership from 2009 to 2010, according to The Neilsen Company.

 “Elevating the brand perception of a company is a not an easy feat, despite doing so with a partner as dedicated as MobiTV,” said Janet Tyler, Airfoil president. “The entire team went above and beyond its goals for this thought-leadership campaign, and helped solidify MobiTV Inc. in its rightful position as an industry and thought leader.”

 Airfoil manages strategy and execution for both MobiTV’s corporate and technology platform public relations programs.

 As the world's largest awards competition for the public relations industry, the SABRE Awards celebrate PR campaigns that demonstrate the highest levels of creativity, integrity and effectiveness. The finalists were chosen from close to 2,000 entries submitted this year, and represent some of the strongest programming in the history of the competition. The SABRE Awards were presented at theHolmes Report’s annual awards dinner, which took place on May 10, 2011 in New York City.
