The Internet Marketing Association held its IMPACT15 Conference and Awards event late last month at CityCenter in Las Vegas. The gathering set a new benchmark with its roster of speakers and panelists focused on breaking industry trends, issues and best practices.

Each year, a highlight of the event is the presentation of the IMPACT Awards, recognizing a wide range of achievements and leadership across the field of Internet marketing.

Among the honorees was Rolltech, which received the Disruptor of the Year award for its advanced technology platform, innovative and player-friendly features, and role in creating a new global community of app-based bowling game players.

“We are thrilled to receive this significant award from the Internet Marketing Association,” said Rolltech CEO Rich Belsky. “IMA represents the cream of the crop in the technology world, and this recognition is a tremendous endorsement of our commitment to energizing the sport in a quantum leap forward with strong benefits for both players and bowling center operators.”

Bob Johnson has received more national writing awards than any other bowling writer — close to 70 over the course of his 40-year career. He began at age 16 as a staff writer and then assistant editor for the weekly Pacific Bowler newspaper in his native California, and within three years was writing feature stories for Bowlers Journal. He has written for the magazine ever since, except for a five-year span when he was hired as the founding editor of another magazine. He moved to Chicago in 2000 and spent 13 years in the Windy City, including five as Bowlers Journal’s Editor. In 1975, Johnson received the Robert E. Kennedy Award as California’s top undergraduate high school journalist. Five years earlier, on the lanes, he had shared the Bantam Division Doubles championship in the Orange County Junior Bowling Association Championships. Today, he continues to work full-time for Bowlers Journal as its Senior Editor, to write his popular “Strikes Me” column, and to edit Luby Publishing Inc.’s weekly business-to-business Cyber Report.
