Marketing Events Awards Key Dates



As the region began its gradual return to normalcy in 2022, event marketers and planners were at the edge of their seat, waiting for the reappearance of physical events.

After adapting to the challenges brought on by the pandemic, and shifting to virtual and hybrid models while acquiring completely new skillsets and knowledge compared to traditional in-person events, it’s time to push the envelope again.

It’s not a “return” to how events used to be run, but a meshing of the best of both pre-pandemic and con-pandemic practices that defines today’s modern event organiser.

That’s why MARKETING-INTERACTIVE is thrilled to return for the 12th year to discover, recognise, and reward the very best in event marketing and production. The Marketing Events Awards is open to countries from across South Asia, Southeast Asia and Oceania regions. Judged by an independent panel of senior client-side marketers, the Marketing Events Awards continues to be the definitive awards programme for all event professionals.


We have 44 categories available for both clients and agencies to enter. Set yourself apart and demonstrate to our expert judging panel of industry leaders why you should be a winner at the next Marketing Events Awards.
