Friday 7th July 2023, Leonardo Royal Hotel, St Pauls

Investment Week, Professional Adviser and Professional Pensions are delighted to announce the 2023 Investment Marketing & Innovation Awards.

Hot on the heels of our best attended year ever in 2022, the Investment Marketing And Innovation Awards are back to set the standard for excellence within the industry.

With seven new categories for 2023, including the Best Response to Change, Agency of the Year and Rising Star awards, these awards recognise the individuals, teams, and leaders that have delivered outstanding campaigns amidst the volatile and ever-changing market environment of 2022.

It isn’t just about creativity. In a post-pandemic environment, innovation has been crucial, and award entries should inspire with unique content concepts, brand missions and ground-breaking strategies.

The awards are open to both global businesses and marketing agencies and categories range from marketing and proposition development, thought leadership and content marketing, and through to digital marketing. All campaigns should clearly demonstrate their power in terms of impact and genuine return on investment and customer engagement.

The ceremony with dinner will be hosted at Leonardo St Pauls on Friday 7 July.

We hope to see you there.
