Verlo received first place in the Client Marketing Campaign (business-to-consumer category) for the effective promotion of its annual Mismatch Mattress Sale. In the campaign, Verlo advertised mattresses and foundations whose panels, borders and bases are upholstered in discontinued, unmatched fabrics.
