DMA sponsorship and partnership packages provide a full year of opportunities for organisations looking to raise their profile; position their brand; align themselves with the debate on the industry’s current issues; co-create DMA endorsed content; create lead generation and networking opportunities; and meet with key industry players, all of which offer a fantastic return on investment.

The DMA Awards programme launches in January with the ‘What’s Next’ conference – a rehash of what trends have inspired the industry and what our experts see on the horizon for the year ahead. The DMA Awards programme continues with awards roadshows and webinars from March to August; roundtables; DMA Judging 9 to 16 October; the shortlist party at the Haymarket Hotel on 17 October; and the ultimate DMA Awards event – the infamous Awards night on 3 December.
