The Industry Choice of Partner award, sponsored by 7thingsmedia, allows companies of all demographics to show appreciation and support for an advertiser, network, tech solution or publisher that has been integral to the success of their campaigns.

This category will include three winners announced at the awards on April 28 at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. Those who are successful will be presented with an Industry Choice of Advertiser, Industry Choice of Network/Tech Solution or Industry Choice of Publisher award.

Over the next few weeks, PerformanceIN will provide a summary of those nominated in each category. This week, we take a look at the companies competing for the coveted award of Industry Choice of Publisher.

“We are delighted to be sponsoring Industry Choice of Partner at the Performance Marketing Awards for the second year running,” said Fiona Gandy, International Account Director at 7thingsmedia.

“As advocates of the performance marketing industry, we’re keen to recognise the integral advertisers, publishers and networks that help drive strong results for brands and partners. We wish all those nominated the best of luck and I look forward to celebrating at the award ceremony.”

Last year’s prize went to advertising agency GDM Digital, which has since been acquired by Ve Interactive.

“I was delighted that GDM won the “Industry Choice of Publisher” award at last year’s award ceremony,” said Ed Stevens, former CEO of GDM Digital and current commercial director at Ve Interactive.
