The winners of the 2022 ICAS Marketing Competition were announced and celebrated this past December during the annual convention in Las Vegas. After a decade-long hiatus, the updated program returned not only to highlight the exceptional ways ICAS members promote their businesses and airshows but also to provide air show professionals samples of best practices among all segments of the ICAS membership. With twenty-two awards given in thirteen different categories, convention delegates saw a variety of examples to bring into the 2023 air show season.
