Without our wonderful agency partners, building successful bots on behalf of our customers, training others on how to become Messenger Marketing experts, or promoting us in the market, ManyChat wouldn’t exist. Your passion, creativity, and innovative flows have taken ManyChat to the next level. 

Because there are so many unique uses and inspiring case studies, we wanted to honor the achievements of our users. During Conversations 2019, we held our first-ever Agency Awards which recognized those people for all of their hard work and innovation. With so many submissions, it was incredible to see all the cutting-edge applications. In total, we handed out six awards and had numerous honorable mentions.

The Emerging Agency Award

The Emerging Agency award honored new agencies who joined ManyChat within the last year. We looked at a combination of Pro bots, successful Pro bots, overall accounts, and professional appearance to determine the recipient for this award.
