Awards & Events


The industry loves a good party and Marketing EDGE’s annual EDGE Awards is just the answer, attracting top marketing leaders along with academics and students. Our elegant EDGE Awards honors marketing excellence in the field of marketing, paying tribute to corporations and luminaries, as well as the best and brightest “rising stars” 40 and under. What separates our awards from all others is the focus on giving back, to support future generations of marketing leadership. You can participate in this not-to-be-missed event by registering, placing a tribute ad, and/or becoming a sponsor.

Marketing EDGE has several ways you can be recognized for your commitment to the field of data-driven marketing. Our Robert B. Clarke (academic), and Lifetime Achievement Award (business) honors an individual’s overall and lifetime achievement in the industry. And our Rising Stars Awards pay tribute to the industry’s most talented marketers under the age of 40. Standout educational institutions and corporations are recognized at our EDGE Awards as well.
