Every year, the CIM Wales/Cymru Marketing Awards seeks out the most effective marketing campaigns across Wales, and brings together those responsible for a night of recognition and celebration.


We had an absolutely fantastic time as headline sponsors last year, cheering on our client Arriva Trains Wales (who picked up an award for the second year running). In fact, we thought the CIM were so successful in bringing together the best and brightest in marketing, we’ve just signed up as the headline sponsor for this year’s event, due to take place on November 23rd.


The reason we want to be involved in the awards is simple really. As an advertising agency we help marketers bridge the gap between brands and customers. We critique marketing campaigns all the time, and so we know how tough it is to cut through the noise – to create a campaign that will make people think and feel…and then do something! That’s especially true in a world that’s flooded with competing messages.


We want to meet the people who make this happen. We want to celebrate them. We want to bring their minds together to talk about what works, what’s great and why. And we want to share a few drinks with them.


That’s why we’re sponsoring the CIM Wales/Cymru Marketing Awards 2016: because we know this talent exists in Wales, and we want to help showcase it.


Next Thursday (4th August), alongside CIM Wales, we’ll be hosting the launch of the 2016 awards at Chapel 1877. So if you’d like to hear more about it from the organisers, judges and past winners (and grab a free drink on arrival) join us from 5.30. Register for the event here.


We look forward to seeing you then!
