27 OCTOBER 2021









Let’s be real – it’s been a challenging time for everyone, but especially for event marketers and event professionals. In the wake of a global pandemic and the social and economic repercussions that followed, the stakes were raised like never before.

In many cases – not being allowed to organise events like before was the biggest obstacle of all.

And yet, this new reality prompted one of the biggest waves of innovation and transformation we’ve ever seen. Digital and virtual formats have become the new normal, and organisers are pushing the boundaries of hybrid-style events like never before.

If you overcame insurmountable challenges with your event strategy, then you’ve come to the right place.

Back for its ninth year, MARKETING-INTERACTIVE is proud to present the Marketing Events Awards 2021.

Designed to discover, recognise, and reward the very best in event marketing and production, entries are open from across Southeast Asia, South Asia and ANZ 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 40 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.
