Charlie Spargo's picture

The full shortlist for this year's Northern Marketing Awards has been revealed.

This year's awards will be hosted virtually on November 3rd at 5pm - bringing together leading marketing professionals online to find out who's a winner.

Free to attend, you can sign up to join this year's Northern Marketing Awards ceremony by following the link below. 

Last year's Northern Marketing Awards attracted more than 400 together to celebrate over dinner at The Point in Manchester - and, while we can't be together this year to celebrate in style, we're proud to be able to put on an event like this for the region's creative talent.

We want to make the evening as special as possible for those in attendance, and share the opportunity to celebrate marketing brilliance. Join us at 5pm on November 3rd to do just that.
