About the Awards

Influencer marketing continues to go from strength to strength, however as with any exciting embryonic industry there are challenges and hurdles to overcome. We are here to help bring stakeholders together and tackle them head-on.

The Influencer Marketing Awards (IMAs) mission is to place a spotlight on the very best influencer marketing campaigns designed and developed with the brand or client in mind which are smartly executed, creative and innovative with clear transparent KPIs and objectives.

With 28 categories programmed, a newly formed judging panel consisting of experienced influencer marketing practitioners from around the globe will discuss and debate each category and depending on merit will award a Bronze, Silver or Gold award. Each of which will be presented by a celebrity host at a glittering awards ceremony.

Whilst the majority of categories are judged by a panel, we've programmed an ‘Industry Choice of Technology or SaaS’ and ‘Rising Star' award which are in part decided upon by peers.

The night itself will be held at a stunning hotel on London's Park Lane where alongside celebrating the successes of the past 12 months, the awards will provide an opportunity for senior representatives from the industry's leading agencies, brands, influencers and technologies to come together and forge relationships during an evening of champagne and fine dining; to a backdrop of glitz and glamour.

The IMAs are programmed by the Influencer Marketing Show, a subsidiary of PerformanceIN. We've been organising award ceremonies for 1000+ for over a decade for the performance marketing sector. We certainly know how to celebrate excellence and throw a great party. More importantly we understand how to reward brilliant companies and the campaigns they execute, providing the recognition they deserve.
