Geoscape Awarded for Excellence in Providing Technology, Research and Data for the Asian American Marketing Community
MIAMI - Geoscape, a leading provider of business intelligence technology, data and analytics, announced that it has been recognized by the Asian American Advertising Federation (3AF) as its 2013 Marketing Research Partner of the Year. Honorees were recognized at 3AF’s annual Asian Marketing Summit, the country’s largest event devoted solely to the Asian American advertising and marketing industries.
“Our awards event is one of the highlights of the conference, and we congratulate all of this year’s winners for their commitment to excellence and to the Asian advertising and marketing industries.”
According to the 2013 American Marketscape DataStream Report, there are currently over 16 million Asian Americans in the United States – a nine percent increase since 2010 and 56 percent increase since 2000. Nearly two-thirds of that population has a household income of more than $50,000 per year. With the Asian American population increasing by 500,000 people annually, Geoscape helps marketers by providing a comprehensive visualization of market potential using a multitude of private and public datasets, modeled for accuracy and ease-of-use.
Geoscape was recognized by 3AF due to the depth and detail its research provides. In addition to demographic and economic data about the broader Asian American population, Geoscape also assists marketers by further segmenting Asian Americans into subcultures based on ethnicity, country-of-origin, socioeconomic strata, acculturation levels and language characteristics.
“We are proud to recognize marketers, media, researchers, advertising agencies and other industry partners who are leading the way in engaging this market,” said Edward Chang, president, 3AF. “Our awards event is one of the highlights of the conference, and we congratulate all of this year’s winners for their commitment to excellence and to the Asian advertising and marketing industries.”
“We share a belief with 3AF that marketers need to embrace the Asian American population as more than another emerging ethnicity with greater buying power,” said Cesar M. Melgoza, CEO of Geoscape. “They need to go a step further to connect with them at a more personal level. We’re honored that an organization with the credibility of 3AF found our data and research worthy of recognition.”
