To recognize the ever growing and developing landscape in which we all operate, we are delighted to announce that the IMA Awards are being updated and enhanced. Beginning in 2020 the Incentive Marketing Association will split their awards categories into three key areas, ensuring that all sectors of our industry and members are represented.
Excellence Awards (formerly Circle of Excellence)
Personal Accomplishment Awards
IMA Member Recognition
Full details regarding all the categories, criteria and nomination procedures will be available from January 31 via a newly launched, dedicated awards website.
IMA will be working with Incentive Awards Ltd., founded by Wendy Carter to develop and roll out these changes. Wendy is the Founder of the European Incentive Awards and an IMA Europe Board Member.
Now in its fourth year the European Incentive Awards are the annual event for the Incentive industry across Europe. In 2019, over 200 delegates attended a gala dinner event in London. The Incentive Awards has formed a successful partnership with IMA Europe.
“We are delighted to be working with IMA board, IMA staff and the Summit Organizing Committee. We understand the association, its members and the industries in which they operate. We are excited to build on the great work that has been undertaken in previous years. Our goal is to bring a fresh momentum to the event, creating a heightened level of anticipation and prestige for the awards ceremony,” said Wendy Carter.
She added, “Along with IMA members and SIG and Chapter Presidents, we will be adding several industry leaders to the judging panel. They will all be experts in their chosen field and reflect our diverse industry today. In our experience, they add a different perspective to the judging process”.
IMA Executive Vice President and 2020 Summit Chair Len Sadek, CPIM, expressed, “We are thrilled to have enhanced award offerings for IMA members and are looking forward to an exciting event.”
You will be able to submit your nominations by the end of January. The closing date will be the 29th of May. If you have any questions, or would like to be more closely involved with this year’s Awards event please drop an email to [email protected]org or [email protected].
