The Drum and Identity Sponsor

Identity, an award-winning leading global supplier of live events, conferences and brand activations, today announces a new partnership with The Drum in 2018.

Identity is at the forefront of brand implementation and live events, with more than 20 years’ experience in the design, management and build of world class promotional experiences for their clients within the conference, exhibition and experiential sectors. The firm delivers a single point of contact service, bridging the gap between agencies or in-house events teams with contractors, providing the support that they need to meet budgets, exceed expectations and maximise return on investment.

The Drum is a global media platform and the biggest marketing website in Europe, reaching over one million unique visitors every month. The Drum publishes a popular monthly magazine and provides award shows, live events, complete content marketing solutions, video production, research, peer-to-peer learning networks, and supplier finder services.

Identity’s partnership with The Drum includes sponsorship of four award shows in 2018 – The Drum Marketing Awards, The Drum Design Awards , The Drum Creative Out Of Home Awards and The Drum UK Event Awards. In addition, Identity will serve as a sponsor of The Drum’s Future of Marketing Conference later this year.

“Identity prides itself on being the best place to work in Sussex,” said Michael Gietzen, Managing Director at Identity. “I’m extremely proud of our dedicated and talented team of professionals, as well as Identity’s position as an important attractor of talent in the events industry. We’re thrilled to be a major sponsor of The Drum this year and thoroughly look forward to what promises to be a superb relationship.”

Lynn Lester, Managing Director of The Drum Live Events said, “The Drum Live Events are delighted to be in partnership with Identity in 2018 across our highly esteemed international awards and conferences. We are looking forward to the awards season when we celebrate excellence across the marketing and events industry.
