Introducing the Performance Marketing Awards


Est. 2007

12 Incredible Years

Since inception in 2007 the Performance Marketing Awards have grown into the largest and leading ceremony for the sector globally. The first International Performance Marketing Awards last year showcased the incredible work being achieved across the continent and demonstrated an appetite for international recognition.

This year will be no different with the awards ceremony recognising great work across the key regions of USA, MENA, APAC, LATAM, Western and Eastern Europe. Alongside celebrating the successes of past 12 months, the Awards provide an opportunity for senior representatives from the industry's leading advertisers, publishers, agencies, networks and technology providers to come together and connect over an evening of champagne and fine dining; to a backdrop of glitz and glamour.

‘For this to be covered on a global scale is an indication of just how strong and how far the industry has come.’

After 10 incredible years of rewarding performance marketing innovation and excellence in the UK, we came increasingly under pressure to allow entries for companies around the globe who have activity across Europe, and not just the United Kingdom.

The first ever European Performance Marketing Awards opened up our borders to reward companies that excel in at least one market, handing them the opportunity to compete against their European peers.

The extra special tenth anniversary of the Performance Marketing Awards saw a record breaking number of guests, reaching the 1000 mark. The night saw an incredible 3 course dinner being put on by the Grosvenor House hotel chefs', followed by awards being given out to the leading names in the industry, and ending with networking and shimmying on the dancefloor. It was a spectacular night and 2017 is set to even top that.
