Are you the industry’s number one agency? What makes your business stand out from the crowd? Tell us about your best brand experience work, why 2016 was a big year for the company and how you are looking to take your agency to the next level.

Shortlisted agencies will be invited to present to our panel of client judges


Brand Experience B2C

Did your brand or agency deliver the best consumer-facing experience of the year? How did you bring the core elements of a marketing campaign to life through a live activation and why did it engage with the general public? 


Brand Experience B2B


Are you a brand or agency that has delivered a business-focused event that surpassed all expectations? How did you connect with this audience and engage them through a live experiential activation while keeping in mind the core business goals?


Global Brand Activation


Whether it is a consumer brand experience or business-focused event, this accolade aims to crown one international activation with this title. Note – it can be a standalone event in an international market (outside the UK) OR part of a global series.


The Game Changer

This award will honour the best event, brand experience or supplier that changed the face of live events in 2016. It must have an element of innovation and differentiation, something which shows it is out of the ordinary or a step above the rest.


Activation at a Festival or Public Event

Have you designed and executed an experience that has involved creating brand advocacy at either a festival or public event? We want to know why this activation made such an impact as part of a wider experience.


Disruptive Campaign

Are you an agency or event organiser that has produced a PR stunt or guerilla marketing activation to enhance the profile of an event before, during or after? What live techniques did you apply to surprise and interrupt consumers? 


Integrated Marketing Campaign

Tell us how a brand experience or wider event series was at the core of a wider marketing campaign, featuring a variety of other channels including PR, digital, advertising and social media. How did it help to reinforce the brand’s core message?


Digital Experience


How did you tie social media and technology to a live experience to connect and engage with your audience and to maximise the reach and experience? Tell us how you incorporated tech, social sharing and digital innovations as part of your live event strategy.


Creative Event of the Year


We’re looking for how theming, design, entertainment, catering, lighting and innovation, as well as client and guest feedback, all helped to deliver an outstanding creative event, including brand experiences and industry showcases and events.


Outstanding Creative Idea


Created with support from the Live Experience Creatives, this award aims to seek out the most brilliant creative idea of the year, open to agencies and brands that can show the journey from a smart strategic insight to a compelling creative experience. 


Outdoor Event


It could be a music festival, sporting occasion, a movie club or pop-up, or something completely different – we’re looking for a stand-out outdoor event that uses open-air environments as part of its backdrop.  


Debut Event

Have you launched an exhibition, experiential campaign or creative event that has proved its worth in its first year, exceeding all expectations? Did your live activation fill a gap in the market or leave guests wanting more?


Exhibition Experience

Whether it was one element of a wider exhibition, or the full experience, judges will be looking at how exhibition organisers, agencies and brands are making these events stand out within a crowded market.



Event Partners

Are you an event production company or supplier to the industry that has worked to improve live events through your own services or products? Were you instrumental to the build and de-rig stages and did you go above and beyond your call of duty?


Security, Staffing & Logistics

With personal interaction at the core of our industry, are you an agency or supplier that provides key personnel necessary to the success of live events? Is good customer service with a smile at the core of your day-to-day activities?
