MARKETING EDGE 2020 Summit, Awards go virtual and live

MARKETING EDGE 2020 National Marketing Stakeholders Summit & Brands & Advertising Awards of Excellence will be held partly virtual and partly at a physical venue this year. The event, which goes with the theme: “Making Your Business Future–Fit: The Post Digital challenge”, is slated for Thursday and Friday, 15th and 16th October, 2020.

According to the organisers, the MARKETING EDGE National Marketing Stakeholders Summit will hold on 15th October (10am -2pm), while the Award Night is scheduled for 16th October (6pm -11pm prompt), 2020. The digital venue of the summit event is Zoom, while the physical venue (strictly by invitation) is D’Podium International Event Centre on the highbrow Aromire Avenue, Ikeja, Lagos.

A statement from the Publisher/CEO MARKETING EDGE, MR JOHN AJAYI revealed that the epoch-making annual marketing event is, “once again, ready to recognise and celebrate excellence in Nigeria’s Integrated Marketing Communications Industry (IMC) despite disruptions occasioned by the global coronavirus pandemic, adding that all Covid-19 protocols would be duly observed.

“It’s here again! The MARKETING EDGE annual 2-in-1 event, National Marketing Stakeholders Summit & Brands & Advertising Awards of Excellence is under-way.

“Our Guest Speaker for this year’s summit is Andisa Nstubane, former Africa Microsoft and Head Marketing, Planning & Africa Marketing Old Mutual Emerging Markets,” the statement said.

The statement also said that all awards categories for this year will be duly announced and a digital portal opened for submission of creative works across the IMC industry.

It would be recalled that the industry respected and nationally accepted event, the seventh in the series, was earlier slated for June this year, but had to be shifted because of the out-break and consequent spread of Covid-19 pandemic and the attendant imperatives imposed by it, both locally and globally.

MARKETING EDGE Awards is an annual award ceremony that celebrates high performer players and gladiators in the market and credibility of great brands and personalities in the IMC industry.

Having being involved in promoting the brand idea through remarkable reportage of the industry, consistently almost for two decades the organisation took a step further to recognise and reward outstanding performance and excellence in the industry which birthed the MARKETING EDGE Annual National Marketing Summit & Brands & Advertising Excellence Awards seven years ago.
