MarTech Awards (2024)
Innovation in Business is excited to announce the launch of the MarTech Awards 2024! This exciting programme is returning to our platform for the third year, and we are looking forward to once again shining a light on the latest developments, trends, and innovations across the Marketing Technology landscape.
In the years following the pandemic, consumer behaviour has evolved to fully embrace the digital world, and as a result today’s consumers are demanding faster, more personalised user experiences. In order to stay ahead of the curve in the modern business market – where the lines between human and digital are blurring – companies must leverage the latest technology to drive growth and provide the best, most personal services for their audiences.
Streamlining and bolstering marketing efforts significantly helps businesses effectively acquire and retain an engaged customer base. By utilising MarTech solutions such as automation, IoT, data analytics, and AI, businesses can improve operational efficiency, gain a deeper understanding of consumer behaviour and preference, create hyper-personalised shopping experiences, and more thoroughly track their marketing campaigns. These benefits, along with the rapid adoption of marketing technologies across key industries like Healthcare and Manufacturing, are expected to drive substantial market growth over the next ten years.
As global demand for MarTech increases, overall marketing budgets are pivoting to accommodate this. This is reflected in a recent survey by Garter, which reported that over two thirds of CMOs are set to increase their MarTech spending in the coming years. With the previous decade of 2011-2020 seeing an unprecedented growth rate of over 5,000%, the outlook for the future of the MarTech industry is exceptionally bright.
Here at Innovation in Business, we want to recognise the entrepreneurship and innovation of those propelling the MarTech industry forward. Through the MarTech Awards 2024, we will provide a platform for the leading lights of this dynamic sector to promote their game changing products and services to an international circulation of industry peers and potential clients. Our team of researchers and judges will assess nominees using unbiased, merit-based criteria to ensure that only the most deserving candidates go on to be successful in this year’s programme.
Appearing in our dedicated MarTech Awards supplement is a fantastic way to increase exposure and maximise the benefits of receiving an industry award. In addition to this bespoke editorial coverage, Innovation in Business also offers a range of physical and digital marketing tools to assist our recipients in promoting their award win. For those not looking to invest in commercial advertising options, we also offer a free-of-charge marketing toolkit to all winners, so there truly is something for everyone taking part!
To submit a nomination in the MarTech Awards 2024, please click the ‘Vote Now’ button and complete the form provided – our team will do the rest! We would like to wish the best of luck to all of this year’s candidates!

The researching of nominees
The Innovation in Business team work ardently to identify the firms that are truly delivering and achieving great things for their industry sector. We drive many of the nominations ourselves and also encourage external nominations via subscribers, online visitors, social media followers, clients and wider circulation. Nominating parties are invited to put forward either third-party businesses whom they hold in high regard, or their own organisation.
The Shortlisting of nominees
All nominees are formally requested to accept their nomination. Should any firm or individual rather decline at this point, they are simply taken out of the running. Those who formally accept are given the opportunity to submit additional materials in support of their nomination. Although there is no obligation to complete and supply material, we have found that many nominees value this stage, in the process, and our research team find this very beneficial when determining businesses deserving of recognition.
Professional evaluation and judging of those shortlisted
Our dedicated research team will assess all information presented to them and also gather information independently from a variety of publicly accessible sources, which are assessed alongside any material supplied by a nominating party or the nominee themselves. The research team casts their final judgment, based on various criteria including client and customer dedication, innovation, business growth, longevity, online reputation, customer feedback and business performance.
Once winners are determined, they are personally notified before any public announcement is made, allowing time for any communications throughout the wider business and the coordination of marketing strategies. Unfortunately, not everyone can be a winner; however, all who take part are encouraged to come back next year. Once the press embargo is lifted, details of our Innovation in Business award winners will be made public via the website, award winners’ magazine and subscriber newsletter.
Gain maximum exposure for your win
Innovation in Business award winners are offered a range of promotional packages which vary from inclusion in the free-of-charge winners’ directory, to trophies, content in our magazine and on our website. We encourage all winners to publicly announce their win independently. Announcements via company websites, social media, via publicly released press releases, and through local and national press are all great ways of maximising the exposure which can be gained from such an amazing achievement. If you have need of further advice, on how to gain maximum exposure from your win, please feel free to get in touch. We are more than happy to assist our clients with their marketing needs and initiatives.
