Commercial Confidence

It is very important that you provide evidence of commercial success and ROI, without these the judges cannot measure the success of your campaign and you may lose out on points otherwise easily gained.

We understand that this information is of a sensitive matter and therefore all judges will be required to sign a Non Disclosure Agreement. Any information you put into your entry will automatically be treated as ‘for judges eyes only’ and no information from your entry will go further than the judges. All judges are vetted for conflicts and any issues, no matter how small will be taken seriously both for our reputation and your peace of mind.

If you have any questions regarding commercial confidence please call the founder and managing director of PerformanceIN, Matthew Wood on +44 117 990 2940.
