Each year, the performance marketing space grows bigger and brighter, achieving more wins and breaking new ground. This is all thanks to the work of the wonderful individuals, teams, campaigns, partnerships, and technologies, which excel and lead the way for the rest of the industry.

The Global Performance Marketing Awards is the esteemed recognition of these achievements, rewarding the best players in the field each year, and bringing the industry together from around the globe to applaud performance marketing’s top triumphs of the past 12 months.

Now in its seventh year, the GPMAs is a revered and unmissable night of supreme networking opportunities with some of the industry’s brightest minds and senior representatives, delicious food and plenty of drink, enthralling entertainment, and cheerful celebration of all our hard work and proudest accomplishments.

New year, new categories

Last year, we launched a number of new categories, including Best Content Commerce Strategy, and Best Use of Cashback or Incentive. This time round, we’re thrilled to announce the launch of four more brand new categories:

  • Best Use of Retail Media
  • Best Connected TV Campaign
  • Best Initiative or Partnership for Good
  • Best Social Commerce or Live Shopping Campaign

The introduction of these awards reflects the ever-growing nature of the performance marketing space, which has recently seen increased integration of the retail media channel, and expansion into the popular CTV arena. Commenting on these additions, Matthew Wood, Founder of the GPMAs, said, “Two hot new categories this year for Retail Media and Connected TV demonstrate that performance-based advertising is broadening its reach as brands demand measurable returns,  and are eager more than ever to move away from reliance from the big three platforms.”
