Introducing the Performance Marketing Awards


Est. 2007

11 Incredible Years

Since inception in 2007 the PMAs have grown into the leading and largest awards ceremony in performance marketing, celebrating a landmark eleventh year in 2017. The spectacular Grosvenor House Hotel will again play host to the industry's leading names and brands, providing a platform to showcase exceptional work within the digital arena – a decade of celebrating the very best performance marketing.

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.

‘The Performance Marketing Awards are a great way to recognise all the great people within the industry. With over 900 people attending it's fantastic way of bringing everybody together and it's so great to be able to celebrate the success of the industry with everyone.’
