The IPM COGS Awards exists to recognise and reward all the incredible work that enables promotional marketing and brand activation campaigns to happen. All the passion, graft and expertise without which most campaigns would fall at the first hurdle. All the hidden heroes, the engine rooms, the hard yards, the reason clients can sleep at night, the backbone of the industry.

Paul Cope, IPM Managing Director, said: “Yet again, the standard of entries across the board this year was excellent – which made the judging process pretty lively, to say the least! It further proves our industry is truly committed to the machinery and implementation of brand activation. It’s the foundation on which campaign effectiveness is built and you under-value it at your peril.”

Richard Pink, IPM Head of Awards, added: “The 22 companies on this year’s IPM COGS shortlist should be very proud of their achievement. This recognition is just reward for their skill and effort, acknowledged by our superb judges who certainly know a thing or two about what it takes to deliver brilliance in marketing services.”

The IPM will be awarding trophies across 12 categories and 3 special awards – Team of the Year, Service Agency of the Year and the coveted Grand Prix – at their presentation event at London’s legendary Café de Paris, in the heart of Piccadilly, on Thursday 26th September.

Running from 1pm until 5pm, attendees at the event will enjoy a welcome reception, three course lunch, compere and unique opportunity to network with a room of industry colleagues.
