In 2011, we detected a gap in the market for a truly outstanding celebration of the expertise, talent, and achievement of SEO, PPC, and content marketing agencies in the UK. With the support of sector leaders, Don’t Panic initiated the most respected national search award event in the country which has gone from strength to strength – the UK Search Awards.

Today, Don’t Panic produces search events in Europe, in the United States, and in the Middle East and North Africa, which include:

Each event has become key celebrations for the search industry in those territories, and reward the expertise, talent and achievements of the search industry. The awards are regarded as the premiere celebration of SEO, PPC and content marketing in each region, and attract hundreds of entries from the leading search and digital agencies from across the globe.

We also run several events internationally connected with the Search Awards series, including the Interactive Marketing Awards, the UK Biddable Media Awards and the UK Content Awards, with a sister event, the ‘European Content Awards’, launching this March.

We Are Search can, with justification, be considered the International Voice of Search.

Sponsorship Opportunities

A number of exciting sponsorship opportunities are available across our Search Awards events, including headline sponsorship.

By sponsoring one of our events, you open up several months of marketing and PR activity via the event website, email marketing, social media promotion and at the event itself. Your investment will give your company the opportunity to meet key influencers & professionals from the industry whilst reinforcing your brand positioning.

Our sponsorship packages allow you to measure ROI through a number of metrics which may include interactions, increased footfall to your website, increased social platform follows or face-to-face connections. Just a couple of calls post-event to these connections could result in a valuable new contact and the generation of new business.
