Wow, what a year! Having kicked off this publication in November, we couldn’t be more delighted with the response so far. Big thanks to everyone who has signed up for a membership, contributed to an article, sat down for an interview, interacted with us on LinkedIn, or even just sent a message to say hi.
We’re building a community space here at Hello Partner, focused on sparking conversation and debate that will push the world of partnerships forward.
We’ve got more exciting developments to come in the new year, but first, we’re taking a short break over the holiday season. Before we do, we’d like to share some of our proudest achievements of the year with you and outline our 2023 plans.
Hello Partner takes the USA
For the first time in 2022, the Hello Partner team headed to the USA to host two boutique conferences – PI LIVE Advanced and the Influencer Marketing Show NYC. Tailored specifically towards brands, it was fantastic to see our global audience come together stateside to connect and learn from one another.
Ollie Russell, Hello Partner’s Influencer Marketing Show Partnerships Manager, was beyond pleased with the first edition of IMS NYC. He added, "The event completely sold out in 2022 and demand for 2023 is already really high! We’re thrilled to be delivering IMS again in New York City in 2023!"
If you want to get in on the action, the Influencer Marketing Show will be returning to New York in June 2023, and Ollie is happy to answer any questions you may have about getting involved.
But before the Hello Partner team heads to NYC in the Summer, we will be packing our bags and flying over to the coastal metropolis of Miami for PI LIVE in April. Matthew Wood, Founder of Hello Partner, guarantees that the event will be “the epicentre of the partnership industry.”
Leading the way in London
In October this year, we hosted our legacy conferences, PI LIVE London and the Influencer Marketing Show London, in the UK’s capital city. This year’s consecutive events, hosted at the spectacular Old Billingsgate, were bigger and better than ever. Both events welcomed a record number of attendees and partners, and the introduction of a third stage at IMS meant that we delivered even more insightful content than ever before!
Of course, we will be back at Old Billingsgate in October 2023, welcoming a global representation of the partnership marketing space for three days of what we promise will be our best event yet!
Celebrating the partnership marketing community
In 2022 we hosted the first edition of the US Partnership Marketing Awards, which we will be celebrating for the second time in 2023 alongside PI LIVE Miami in April. Expanding our events and awards programme to the US market is a great achievement, and we can’t wait to further solidify ourselves in the space.
It was amazing to have held all of this year’s award ceremonies in person for the first time since the pandemic. Presenting accolades across the entire partnership sphere allows us to celebrate the community within the space and recognise the excellent work that enables the industry to thrive.
For 2022, it’s time for the Hello Partner team to sign off. If you are taking a break over the next couple of weeks, we hope you enjoy it, and can’t wait to be back again in January 2023! Be sure to subscribe to our newsletter to stay up to date with everything we have in store for the coming year…
