UK Sponsorship Awards Launches Annual Agency Survey

As part of its commitment to the UK sponsorship industry, the team behind the UK Sponsorship Awards is today launching its first-ever annual UK Sponsorship Agency Survey. The purpose of the survey is to provide industry executives with insights into major developments over the last year, and also the trends and issues likely to impact on the business going forward. 

To participate in the UKSA Survey, we would be grateful if you could answer the following questions. We have asked for names and job titles to ensure the integrity of the survey, but all information and answers will be treated in strict confidence and will not be used for any marketing purposes. For year one, we are keeping the structure of the survey simple, but the plan is to build on it in year two if it generates sufficient response. 

Don't forget that agencies can also enter a variety of dedicated categories in this 2018 UK Sponsorship Awards. Last year, there were three agency awards up for grabs (Large, Medium to Small and Innovation). Depending on the submissions, there may also be a Sales category, also international/network.  

In addition, agencies have the opportunity to reward their rising stars via the Barrie Gill Award for Most Promising Young Sponsorship Executive. 

This year, for the first time, UKSA is also launching its Champions of Sponsorship programme, an initiative designed to reward the most talented and influential figures currently working in the UK business. This is not exclusively for agencies, but is an opportunity for agencies to nominate talent from within their ranks or among their most important clients.

To enter, click here. The Early Bird deadline in December 18, 2017 and the final deadline is January 15, 2018.
