A stellar collection of leading-edge brand marketers, agency creatives, and publishers came together at a sold-out IAB MIXX Awards Gala to celebrate the winners of the seventh annual MIXX Awards, which recognize creativity and impact in interactive advertising.

American Express OPEN & CP+B and DIGITAS took home Best in Show, the gala’s top prize, for “Small Business Saturday,” a campaign that in three short weeks was able to develop and launch a brand new shopping day that consumers had never heard of, driving retail sales for small business owners at the beginning of the crucial holiday shopping season.
