Last night, in the Magic City of Miami, the second edition of the US Partnership Awards went off without a hitch, and most importantly, the deserving winners secured their trophies for their exceptional work. Since the inaugural ceremony last year, the appetite for Hello Partner’s US focussed awards programme has increased, as well as the volume of unmatched entries.
After a jam-packed day of networking and insight at PI LIVE Miami, the Hyatt Regency Hotel became home to the USPAs. Thanks to all of our award sponsors and Platinum Partners – impact.com and Rakuten Advertising – the ceremony presented a welcome opportunity for show attendees, award judges, and award entrants to celebrate their success over a glass of fizz.
The gold trophies were in high demand, but only a select few could take home the accolades. Who were these prosperous winners executing pioneering partnerships in the influencer, affiliate, performance, and brand spaces in North America?
The 2023 winners
This year’s awards cycle welcomed 10 brand new categories! The Best Affiliate & Partnership Strategy for an SME (won by Quince and BDBCreative) and Enterprise (won by Disney+ and Neo Media World) categories recognised the industry's ability to adapt strategies for different clients; the Partnership for Good winners, IZEA, did a stellar job of celebrating the LGBTQIA+ campaign through partner marketing; and the Best Affiliate & Partner Marketing Agencies Large (Neo Media World) and Small (BDBCreative) showed how teamwork makes the dream work.
The much anticipated One To Watch accolade was graciously accepted by Kaia Skillman, Associate Account Manager at Hamster Garage, and on the influencer side, HireInfluence secured the gold and set the pace for the Best Influencer Marketing Agency in the partnerships space.
