The Drum UK Event Awards have launched for the eighth time, this year with a twist. Not only will these awards once again recognise and reward those often behind the scenes within the event industry, they will now put more of a focus on the experiential element of the marketing world. Recent research highlighted that marketers are expected to increase experiential spend by up to 50% in the next 3-5 years, and increasingly companies that started off solely as event planners are transitioning into the experiential realm. This fact highlights that brands are no longer interested in running events for the sake of it but in creating experiential campaigns which truly reflect the core of the brand. 

We have several new categories for 2017 reflecting this exciting area of the event world....


Whether you are an experiential agency, event organiser, promoter, marketing agency, supplier, in-house team or venue, the UK Event Awards are your platform to shine in 2017.
