Nominations invited for Marketing Week birthday honour

In March 1998, Marketing Week will be 20-years-old – and to mark the occasion we are launching a unique awards scheme.

The Marketing Week 20th Birthday Honours will celebrate personalities, products and companies which have achieved out standing performance over the years.

As a first step, readers are invited to submit nominations for all 26 categories (see page 30). These will be sifted by a committee of senior Marketing Week journalists – including seasoned contributors such as Torin Douglas and Alan Mitchell – who will draw up a shortlist.

Finally, the winners will be picked by a panel which includes Martin Sorrell, chief executive of WPP, managing director of Guardian and Observer Newspapers Caroline Marland, Roger Partington, marketing director of Safeway, and chief executive of United Biscuits Eric Nicoli.

The awards event will take place on the evening of Tuesday March 3 1998, at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.
