Initiated five years ago by the local daily “Hamburger Abendblatt” and the Marketing Club Hamburg, the best creative heads of “Marketing Made in Hamburg” are being recognised with HAMMA Awards. This year, the prize-giving gala will take place in the presence of Hamburg’s Minister of Economy, Transport, and Innovation at Emporio Hotel Hamburg on 11 November. Attended by more than 400 years, the award ceremony is a major event of Hamburg’s marketing scene.
Three Categories and a Special “Olympics” Award
Awarded are annually granted to outstanding national and international campaigns, which have their origin in the metropolitan region of Hamburg, in four categories: Large Businesses, Small Business & SMEs, social marketing, and in the special category “Hamburg brand”. For the first time, a special “Olympics” award will be granted in 2015. The prize will be given to a campaign that supported Hamburg’s application as host of the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games in an outstanding way or significantly increased Hamburg’s international perception as host city candidate.
