About the European Performance Marketing Awards

After ten incredible years of rewarding performance marketing innovation and excellence in the UK, PerformanceIN has increasingly come under pressure to allow entries for companies around the globe who have activity across Europe, and not just the United Kingdom.

The first ever European Performance Marketing Awards opens up the borders to reward companies that excel in at least one market, handing them the opportunity to compete against their European peers.

When PerformanceIN launched the mainland European Conference back in 2009, the key aim was to share knowledge, best practice and facilitate networking. By showcasing a list of groundbreaking campaigns and technology, the new Awards will only help build the industry and cement those aims further.
