ESA Excellence AwardsRights Holder
The European Sponsorship Association is the voice of the sponsorship industry in Europe. It seeks to inspire, educate and raise standards within the sponsorship industry. As a membership association, it strives to lead the industry through activities relating to policy and governance, corporate responsibility, education and training, provision of information and networking.
The ESA Excellence Awards is the flagship event where agencies, brands and rights holders across the continent come together to celebrate the best sponsorship campaigns of the year, covering the entire spectrum of the sponsorship disciplines.
To win or even be shortlisted for an award at the ceremony is a huge endorsement, adding unrivalled credibility to that organisation and the service they provide.
Slingshot have sought to drive the event to new heights by collaborating with some of the most forward thinking organisations in the space. Our vision was to engage larger European audiences, reinvigorating the awards programme as an international platform. We delivered in this regard as we increased the number European entries by 100% since 2014.
On the 9th February 2017, Slingshot managed the 10th ESA Excellence Awards held at the stunning Porchester Hall in London, which attracted over 300 attendees. This year, Slingshot brokered deals with 9 organisations with each partner delivering high quality services and activations across the evening. Highlights included a truly unique photo installation by The Bosco, engaging gif technology from Pictures Experience and fantastic VR content from Infinite360. In addition to this, the awards introduced a number of new categories, which led to a new record of entries, further signifying the continuous rise of the prestigious industry event.
