We’re very excited to announce the 2020 edition of the PerformanceIN 50; an annual global list of the year’s most exceptional, inspiring and influential individuals who are pushing the conventional boundaries to improve the performance marketing channel.

PerformanceIN 50 is an industry-led digital list showcasing 50 individuals within the performance marketing industry that have really made a difference to the channel in the last 12 months, whether in EMEA, US, LATAM, MENA or APAC. We want to internationally recognise those inspiring positive wider-actions to overcome key challenges facing the industry today.

“Immensely valuable”

2020 has certainly been game-changing, but the industry has proven itself resilient with the breadth and depth of opportunities available, making both the channel profitable and supporting the wider community as well.

That is why we want to highlight those that have not only gone out of their way to push the agenda forward for the performance marketing industry, but also to adapt and provide solutions for the growing opportunities and challenges as the industry accelerates into the next era.

“Recognition amongst your peers and industry colleagues is the best kind of affirmation that your work is valuable and well-regarded. PerformanceIN has created a platform for people of all levels to be recognised for their contributions to the affiliate industry, and I was delighted at the diverse range of people, experience levels and backgrounds that made up the 2019 list. As somebody that has spent a long time in affiliate marketing and has supported the need for new and fresh voices in our industry of late, a platform to recognise influential contributions each year is immensely valuable.”

“Challenging norms and push boundaries

Once again, we’ll be highlighting a number of individuals as One to Watch – indicating the rising stars of the industry, who based on our research, are excelling in technical know-how, unmatched leadership, customer relationship prowess, their role as an industry ambassador, or otherwise to drive the performance marketing channel going into 2021 and beyond.

“It was an honour to be labelled as ‘One to Watch’ in the PerformanceIN top 50 industry players list 2019. To be recognised as a rising star within the industry and appear alongside such talent really inspired me to continue challenging norms and push boundaries, working alongside my fantastic colleagues & partners across the whole industry to help continue driving performance marketing forwards.”

Submit your nominee

Nominations are open until September 22 11.59pm BST. We invite peers to nominate those who they admire for inclusion in the PerformanceIN 50. All entries will be assessed based on the reasons outlined in the submission form so make sure you include evidence of how that individual has helped change or shape the industry this year.

Please note — candidates cannot nominate themselves to be featured in the list. A representative within a company, however, can nominate someone from their organisation. In addition, a high number of nominations for an individual does not increase this person’s chances of inclusion. We solely base this on the individual’s work and contribution to supporting the performance marketing industry this year.

To nominate someone for the PerformanceIN 50, simply complete this form. The full list will be released this autumn on PerformanceIN.To help spread the word and support your nominations, voters and nominees are encouraged to share their entries using the hashtag #PerformanceIN50
