About Our Award Programs

Ex Awards

Event Marketer started the Ex Awards 21 years ago to recognize what back then was just a handful of experiential programs that were showing others in this burgeoning industry how viable and valuable live events could be. Today, it’s the oldest recognition program for experiential marketing—still judged entirely by brand-side marketers. Brands and agencies across business-to-business events and consumer-targeted events vie to be named among the best campaigns of the year, with winners honored live on stage at the annual Ex Awards Gala at the Experiential Marketing Summit.

Check out the 2024 winners here, featured in a special issue of Event Marketer magazine.

Experience Design & Technology Awards

The EDTAs recognize outstanding event design and innovative uses of event technology across a wide variety of consumer-targeted and business-to-business event formats. Design categories span décor, content and overall environments, as well as vehicle and exhibit design, and pandemic-era transformations. Technology categories cover innovative applications of a/v, social media, platforms, and digital content. Our panel of brand-side judges will take into account how the overall design and execution, or the technology, helped satisfy objectives and inspire progress. Check out the 2023 honorees and sign up here for email updates on all of our recognition initiatives.
