The Irish Sponsorship Awards is an unmissable opportunity to have your work reviewed by leading industry experts, to get recognition from your peers, benchmark against your competitors, and attract new clients and top talent to your organisation. But don't just take our word for it; read some of the thoughts of our past entrants, sponsors and judges below.

“Winning three awards has been really good for the brand. It’s been brilliant for the team and I think it just gives us reassurance that we’re doing the right thing for the brand and for our customers… onwards and upwards from our prospective. We’re actually a small team but we have quite a lot of agencies we work really closely with and I think tonight is for everybody that’s involved in the brand and building the brand.”

Sponsorship of the Year, Best Sponsorship Brand & Best TV Broadcast Sponsorship 2018 winner

“It’s great to meet clients and meet people from agencies face to face and actually understand what’s going on in their world, they can understand what’s going on ours and it’s just a great networking event, it’s part of our calendar year, year in and year out.”

Chris Collins, Agency Sales Manager, JCDecaux 2018 Sponsor

"Whether you’re a brand, whether you’re a rights holder, whether you’re an agency, it really puts a spotlight on the work you’re doing and regardless of where you’re coming from, it’s absolutely brilliant to get the recognition.”

Jay Wilson, Lidl Ladies Gaelic Football Association County Jersey Campaign

Best Multi-Platform Sponsorship 2018 winner


“Nights like tonight are brilliant when you consider the quality of entries, the quality of agencies and brands that are there, and I suppose the great thing for us as well on the night is there is a number of our clients here too: to be recognised in this company you know they’re special moments.”

Eoin Conroy, TITAN Experience

Best Sponsorship Team – Agency 2018 winner

“I think to win the award this year in a grand slam year, to win it for Irish Rugby this year, it’s really just a tremendous achievement for us and the team and really just the icing on the cake.”

Roz Diff, Aer Lingus Official Airline of the Rugby Team

Best Sports Team or Athlete Sponsorship 2018 winner

“Winning an award like the best experiential marketing award will give us the potential to compete against bigger brands especially ones with larger share of voice and larger budgets. The more we can stand out the more we can gain a bigger share of voice for a smaller brand.”

Ian O’Rourke, Bringing Hoops to the Streets submitted by Largo Foods

Best Use of Experiential Marketing 2018 Winner

“It is lovely recognition to share with our global counterparts, to let them know that the work we are doing locally is being recognised as best-in-class. It is lovely for us as a team to win (Best Sponsorship Team – Brand 2016) because ultimately that is what HEINEKEN is all about, building a team spirit and delivering as a team for the company.”

Aisling O’Brien, HEINEKEN® Ireland, 2016 Winner


“The Sponsorship Awards for us is a platform to talk to the brands, rights holders and the agencies that are at the forefront of sponsorship in this country and it’s a chance for us to show and demonstrate some the great work that we’re doing, but also to celebrate the work that others are doing as well. Really for everybody it’s about bringing the industry forward, doing better and better work each year and making sure that that work is celebrated.”

Darragh Persse, Founder, The Brand Fans
