Our involvement with the awards

This year’s BIMA Awards were held at the Bankside Vaults in London on 22nd November. We were proud sponsors of two categories: Business to Business and Direct Marketing & Targeted. We attended the event with our 4 VIP guests who were treated to a champagne reception and food with the chance to network with the nominees, judges and industry heavyweights.

With some of the awards being sponsored by the likes of Channel 4; we were certainly privileged to be a part of the evening. BIMA commented “Fifty of the leading practitioners in digital judged a record number of submissions – with the superb quality of entries giving them a tough time arriving at this list. The names and projects set out below are the cream of an incredibly high standard across the board.”

Azra Akhtar, our Digital Recruitment Practice Manager, commented "We were honoured to be a part of this awards ceremony, not only by sponsoring the event but by having the chance to be in the same room as some of the digital industry's heavyweights. There was a real buzz throughout the night and the venue was ideal. I hope to sponsor many more of these events in the future."
