All the companies which supply essential elements to translate great creative ideas into brilliant promotional marketing campaigns need to get their entries in for the IPM COGS Awards 2017 – the entry deadline is just three weeks away, at 23:59pm on Thursday, July 13 2017.
The Institute of Promotional Marketing (IPM) launched The COGS Awards seven years ago as a recognition programme for service partners to run alongside the IPM Awards, which are for the creative element of promotional campaigns.
Entry is open to any company from a range of business sectors which support great promotional marketing campaigns – handling, risk, print, staffing, digital, event and risk management to name but some.
Companies do not have to be IPM members to enter (although members pay lower costs) and the Institute – the marketing industry trade body which represents the interests of brands and organisations which use promotional techniques and the agencies and service providers which advise them — is encouraging members and non-members alike to seize the opportunity to show the world how their contributions have helped create world-class campaigns.
Now in its seventh year, The IPM COGS awards programme is constantly setting benchmarks and driving up the standard or promotional campaigns.
