The Drum Digital Trading Awards APAC are back for 2018 giving recognition to those who make the client’s life easier and their programmatic media buying more efficient.

Winning one of these awards would guarantee you a huge profile. The event is part of The Drum, one of the largest marketing platforms in the world with a million-plus unique readers. If you win, everyone will know about it.

As ever, this isn’t just a gong show. This is the start of an editorial program and calendar of events culminating on the awards night in Singapore, showing The Drum’s commitment to programmatic trading.

We encourage the industry to get involved, take ownership of the discussion around programmatic and ultimately help set industry standards. 

In our second year in Asia Pacific we aim to focus on inspiring brand confidence in data-led advertising, moving the needle to encourage investment from both direct response and performance spend, as well as brand spend.

Entries are open to everyone in the digital media/trading eco-system who can show that they offer a high value service or technology. Including; advertisers, publishers, agencies, trading desks, technology companies etc. In 2017, amazing agencies and platforms like Entropia, Dataxu, AdColony and OMD Hong Kong competed and won.

Remember entries are open across APAC including ANZ.

Entry deadline: 21 August 
Awards Ceremony: 12 October, JW Marriot, South Beach, Singapore

“The Drum Digital Trading Awards is the only forum in our region that is dedicated to recognizing digital work, including programmatic, on both the buy and the sell side. It shines light not just on great campaigns, but on people as well – the unsung heroes that make things happen. It was an honour winning Best Digital Trading Team at last year’s awards, it validated our great work at Mindshare in building best-in-class programmatic services for our clients.”

Gautham Maediratta, head of programmatic, Mindshare Asia Pacific
