Marketing Hong Kong launches Marketing Events Awards

Marketing magazine is please to launch The Marketing Events Awards in Hong Kong to recognise and honour the very best in event marketing, management and event planning.

The Marketing Events Awards originally launched in Singapore, but is now open to event marketers and planners across North Asia. The awards, to be judged by a panel of senior marketers and planners from major advertisers across North Asia, will aim to recognise the best of B2B and B2C events in the region from major one-off and annual events to smaller scale strategic events.

Any event that was marketed, managed and executed in North Asia between 1 January 2014 and 31 May 2015 is eligible for entry. Advertisers with event marketing budget may enter directly, or their event management agencies may enter on their behalf.

Winners of the Marketing Events Awards represent the best in the business, and will be featured in Marketing Events, Asia’s only business marketing magazine focused 100% on event marketing.

Who should enter?
Brands that can demonstrate the effectiveness of their event marketing strategy. For example, Standard Chartered Bank is the event marketer behind the Standard Chartered Marathon, although they employ a number of agencies to organise it for/with them. If the campaign wins, credit will go to the client (Standard Chartered) and the agency that helped them with the campaign.

The Marketing Events Awards is now open for submission until 10 July. A gala dinner will be held at The Mira Hong Kong on 24 September.

A total of 30 categories are up for grabs, with the most awarded to be handed Best of Show – Brand and Best of Show – Agency.
