6P Marketing nominated for outstanding business of the year

At the 34th annual MB Awards by the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce

6P is delighted and honored to accept the Manitoba Chamber of Commerce nomination for the category of Outstanding Small Businesses in the 34th annual Manitoba Business Awards.

The Outstanding Small Business award is presented to a Manitoba-based company with less than 30 employees that demonstrates success in company growth metrics, including sales, profitability, growth prospects, and employment creation in Manitoba. Moreover, the award recipient is committed to advancing research and development in their industry sector. Other award criteria include deploying a vision for sustainable growth, innovative practices, and positive impact in community.

In 2007, 6P started our journey with the goal of helping small businesses that couldn’t afford a full-time marketing department to develop and promote their brands effectively, professionally and ethically. Along the way, we’ve grown to become Manitoba’s business experts, specializing in serving entrepreneurs from all industry sectors, and brand leaders in the sectors of Construction & Real Estate, Agribusiness & Food, Technology & Software and Professional Services.

As designers, strategists, and marketers, we are obligated by nature to take an innovative approach in our offered solutions and services. We recognize the competitive nature of the market, and are committed to research and development in the industry. Our strategy team works closely with our clients to identify what they do best and what they are prepared to do consistently to ensure their sustainable growth and brand equity in the long term.

It is an honor for 6P to be a nominated for this well-known award. We would like to congratulate all the other nominated businesses in all categories, and look forward to celebrating alongside our friends and peers at the MB awards on Friday, October 27th.


Established in 1983, MB Awards are introduced to recognize and celebrate achievements of seven outstanding businesses and business individuals in Manitoba business community. The awards are given to businesses and/or individuals who contribute to Manitoba’s employment; have a successful employee relations department; have seen sustainable growth; and been involved in Manitoba’s well-being and community development. Additional consideration is given to nominees demonstrating special achievements for overcoming unique obstacles.
