On Tuesday 7th May, the performance marketing industry gathered together to celebrate the most prestigious night of the year. The 7th annual Performance Marketing Awards at Grosvenor House Hotel hosted more than 800 advertisers, publishers, agencies and networks. The event saw guests enjoying an evening of networking and entertainment with comedian, Josh Widdicombe playing host for event. Capped off with plenty of dancing, aided by DJ Jukebox and live music, the awards made for a very enjoyable evening.
With 31 awards to shine the limelight on the industry’s talented, we were overwhelmed to see that our network, employees, advertisers and publishers were recognised as the best in their fields. The judging panel consisted of 23 leaders and innovators who were impressed by the standard of entries this year.
For the 6th time, Affiliate Window won the prestigious Publishers’ Choice award, along with a notable new win for the Best Publisher Support. Our ongoing mobile project, ‘Making Mobile Count’ won us the Network Innovation award and was regarded by the judging panel as being of great benefit to publishers.
