Every year, hundreds of key players gather to recognise and honour the brilliant achievements of their peers. Not only do the Awards provide great networking opportunities, the evening is also a great social occasion.  The food and wines are always first class, and there’s fantastic entertainment into the early hours.

Previous attending companies have included American Express, Animal, Argos, ASOS, B&Q, BarclayCard, British Gas, Celtic FC, Dixons Carphone, Domino’s, Fortnum & Mason, Green Man Gaming, HMV, House of Fraser, Iceland Foods, Jack Daniels, Jack Wills, Jewson, John Lewis, Laura Ashley, Lidl, Lloyds Banking Group, MasterCard, Moss Bros, O2, QVC, Red Bull, Royal Mail, Santander, Schuh, Selfridges, Sony, The Trainline, Thomas Cook, Three, Time INC, Toys R Us, Very, Virgin, Vodafone, Wagamama, Wickes, Yotel to name but a few …

This year, eCommerce Awards categories have been tweaked and are split into 4 sections:  Industry, Campaigns, Specialist and Business. Online retailers, relevant agencies, marketers and any company who trades online are encouraged to enter as many categories as are applicable.  The best performing participants overall will automatically be put forward for the Online Gold Award for eCommerce.

So, if you are a retailer or an online company, shout about your achievements and ensure you reap the rewards from the PR and sales uplift that comes hand in hand as a result of a successful entry or two.  If you are an agency, and you have really delivered over the last year for your client, put in a joint entry with your client today and both of you can benefit from your hard work and achievements.
