Industry's marketing champions honoured at MIMA 2015

The industry’s most successful marketing campaigns were recognised in the 14th Meetings Industry Marketing Awards (MIMA) on the weekend.


The Convention Centre Dublin led the way, picking up gold for best integrated marketing campaign, silver for Best Print Advertising Campaign and bronze for best website.

Zibrant, Butlin’s Conferences & Events and London & Partners were among a host of other entries that picked up multiple awards. Overall best marketing team of the year award went to Qhotels.

The annual awards show, organised by M&IT Magazine, was held at the newly-refurbished QEII centre and attended by almost 400 people from all areas of the events industry.

M&IT managing editor Martin Lewis told the audience: “The Meetings Industry Marketing Awards encourage and reward excellence in marketing in our sector and tonight we will see some of the best practice and best ideas in marketing.

“Each MIMA entry must not only state clear objectives and strategy and a detailed evaluation, it must also be accompanied by supporting material and evidence. So judges have pored over print in advertisements and brochures, deliberated over direct marketing and waded through web sites in their endeavours.”

The event raised more than £28,000 for industry charity Meeting Needs, including the online auction in the run-up to the evening.
