element14 (formerly Farnell), the first information portal, collaborative community and electronics store for design engineers and electronics enthusiasts, today announced two Asia Pacific web awards for their suppliers during the Semicon 2012 show held in Singapore. These awards recognise the outstanding results that FCI and RECOM have delivered during 2011 in achieving effective marketing campaigns and high engagement in the element14 Community site, respectively.

"We have been working closely with our industry-leading suppliers to launch dedicated marketing campaigns on both our e-commerce site and on the element14 Community , to connect more meaningfully with engineers in Asia Pacific on the wide range of solutions and products we offer," says William Chong, Regional Director of Supplier Marketing, element14 Asia Pacific, who added "These valued suppliers have collaborated on a variety of innovative and effective programmes which have delivered exceptional results and we wanted to take this occasion at Semicon 2012 to acknowledge them."

The 'Best Digital Marketing Campaign' went to FCI for its integrated use of multi-channels for new product introductions. The promotions on its FFC/FPC connectors and Terminal Block products were well received by engineers and resulted in increases in web visits, conversions and orders for its range of products.

RECOM Power received the award for the 'Most Effective Engagement on element14 Community' thanks to its comprehensive and varied content such as videos and regular product updates, in addition to its Roadtests which were highly appreciated by element14 Community members. The Roadtest programme gives members the chance to personally test and review the latest products from element14 and provide their fellow engineers with valuable insights into the real-life application of products.
