The Drum Experience Awards, formerly The Drum UK Event Awards, are on a mission to remind the world of the power of this growing sector, as well as recognizing the very best in the business.

Winning one of these awards would guarantee you a huge profile. The event is part of The Drum, one of the largest marketing platforms in the world. If you win, everyone will know about it.

The million-plus unique readers who consume The Drum every month want to know about our awards, which gives them insights into best practice, the best companies and the best people.

That is why amazing brands like Formula 1, Bose and Samsung compete It's also why smaller firms love taking part too as it’s a chance to prove that being the biggest is not the same as being the best.

It’s simple. By rewarding effective events and experiential marketing, from boutique festivals to international brand activations, you not only get the recognition you deserve, but also new business. It will also help position winners as the best and most exciting places to work, helping you retain and attract top talent.

The awards are open to any experiential agencies, event organisers, promoters, venues, suppliers and in-house event teams – or any company that can prove effectiveness in one of the category disciplines.

It's time to get your entries in for the 2018 awards and prove to your clients, potential clients and peers that you are the best at what you do.

Entry deadline: 30 August - Extensions available, contact Laura Gregson: 
Awards Ceremony: 4 December, Marriott Grosvenor Square, London 

“Winning the Grand Prix and Best Branded Content campaigns not only was a fantastic moment for the agency but most importantly validated all the incredibly hard work that the team at Pi and our clients had put in over the last year. Creating world class content is one thing, but ensuring that our work also delivers tangible commercial results is another, so it was great to be recognised for this as much as creating something so fun. I definitely encourage all agencies to enter these awards especially if your content is moving the needle on behalf of your clients.”
