Santa Monica, Calif. (Oct. 14, 2020) – The European organization SIINDA (Search & Information Industry Association), has recognized MatchCraft’s innovative approach to supporting local businesses with three awards; a Gold Award for Local Search Innovation – Technology Partner, a Gold Award for Technical Innovation – Technology Partner, and a Silver Award for Master Innovation – Technology Partner, at this year’s Digital Marketing & Innovation Awards – Supporting SMBs (small & medium businesses) during COVID-19. The Digital Marketing & Innovation Awards ceremony, the culmination of SIINDA’s three day “The Universe of Opportunity” event, was hosted virtually and recognized member organizations whose technical or service innovations helped support SMBs during the COVID-19 crisis. The independent judging panel was a mix of media professionals and industry experts from across the European continent.


Local businesses across the globe have been hard hit during the COVID-19 pandemic. Faced with pressure to adapt to rapidly changing consumer behavior, successful local business owners have leaned on their partners within the advertising industry to help redefine their approach to business. MatchCraft’s 22 years of expertise in the local advertising space proved valuable to their reseller and agency partners. The organization’s cross-departmental response to the crisis incorporated innovations in technology, taxonomy, communication, and client engagement to deliver impactful solutions to their partners and the local merchants they serve.

To be recognized by our partners at SIINDA for our efforts this year is truly humbling.”
