Announcing the 2019 Regional Bing Partner Award Finalists

Regional Bing Partner Awards, Congratulations to our finalists, February 20th, Amsterdam.
For the first time ever, we’ll turn the searchlight on our most successful and dedicated partner agencies and their employees across Europe and Asia Pacific at the 2019 Regional Bing Partner Awards. It’s their focus to ensure their clients are showing up in all the right places, in all the most impactful ways. On 20 February it is time to give back and honour the passionate work of advertising agencies, technology partners and search professionals.

We’ll celebrate the success of all our finalists at the exclusive award ceremony to be held at Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The 2019 Regional Bing Partner Awards recognises achievements in 12 categories highlighting the outstanding work of individuals, teams and agencies across the search advertising industry. Our jury of international experts had the extraordinarily difficult task of choosing the finalists out of a record number of submissions. We’re particularly proud to have received this huge number of entries from 10 different markets and to also shine a light on impressive diversity initiatives across the sector with our Diversity & Inclusion Leader Award.
