Fourteen leading Affiliate Marketing practitioners are set to gain industry recognition for their innovation & commitment to the £3bn sector, when the market formally announces the winners of this year’s a4uAwards 2008.

The annual Awards ceremony, which was launched as part of the hugely-successful inaugural a4uexpo event last year, has the full support of this dynamic online sector which is backing its move to become the ‘oscars’ of the Affiliate Marketing world.

Matthew Wood, organiser of the a4uAwards and a4uexpo event, says: “This year, the awards are getting their own spotlight, having outgrown their informal roots at the expo to being hosted at the prestigious Park Lane Hotel in Central London on June 5.

“These Awards are cherished by their recipients and we therefore thought it was only right that the event itself should be given the same respect and admiration as the actual category awards they celebrate.”

The ceremony, which is being organised by affiliates4u, the organisation behind the a4uexpo event as well as the widely-respected affiliates4u.com, the UK’s No.1 portal for Affiliate Marketing, will be a seated black tie event and will also give everyone involved in the sector the chance to celebrate its continuing growth & development.

Co-sponsored by jackpotjoy.com, the UK’s number one Bingo site, progressive affiliate network affilinet UK is also hosting the pre-dinner reception which will be an excellent opportunity for networking before the Ceremony begins.

The 14 award categories are:

- Best Use of Creative
- Best Network Innovation
- Best Merchant Innovation
- Agency of the Year
- Publisher of the Year
- Best Use of AM as part of an Integrated Campaign
