Why Become A Sponsor Of The Admin Awards

What started in 2012 as a single event with a simple premise – Recognize the achievements, loyalty and vital role of Administrative Professionals – has blossomed into consecutive annual programs in six major markets and a growing network of energized professionals.

The Right Audience

The Admin Awards’ annual marketing platform delivers experiential relevance and value to a deeply engaged and excited B2B community of administrative professionals, their executive counterparts, coworkers and human resource leaders who pay close attention to the message The Admin Awards and our community of partners collectively communicate.

It’s All About the Experience

Working collaboratively with our partners, we create a world-class experience that is becoming known as the “Academy Awards for Administrative Professionals”. Within this connected community, there are multiple avenues for our partners to conduct serious, measurable business and influence these important audiences in powerful ways.

Through original activations, product integration, content marketing, social media and leveraged, brand-relevant activities, we continually elevate the experience to drive tangible results.

How to Work with Us

While we offer well-designed, pre-built packages, our relationship and association with our partners can be leveraged in so many productive and imaginative ways. We welcome opportunities to work closely with our partners to find fresh, unconventional approaches to achieve our mutual goals. Have an idea? Let’s explore it together.

Simply put, it works! We are proud and immensely grateful for our sponsors, who return year after year and deepen their involvement in this exciting endeavor.

How The Admin Awards Works from Start to Finish

  • Companies from all business sectors in the specific program’s geographical area are invited to nominate their Administrative Professionals for awards in nine Admin Award categories. Anyone can nominate and there is no cost to nominate during what is typically a two-month nomination window.
  • Once nominations close, Nominees and their executive counterpart(s) attend a Cheers to Nominees Reception which honors all program nominees, kicks off the awards season and generates excitement for the program. (Est. 170 Attendees)
  • Finalists (40-50, est.) are selected after the Cheers reception by an independent panel of judges who rely on written nominations from supervisors, coworkers, clients, etc. who have personally experienced the outstanding work of their program nominee.
  • All Finalists are invited to the annual Admin Awards Gala where winners are announced and the administrative profession is celebrated. 100% of Finalists are accompanied by their executives and co-workers at the gala. (Est. 550 Attendees)
  • Nine Admin Award winners are announced at the Gala, which is an awards luncheon or dinner (varies by market) packed with quality food and beverage, entertainment, amazing prizes and high-quality swag.
  • The Awards are presented in groups of three, punctuated by ‘Prize Breaks’ where Admins and attendees have opportunities to win a host of prizes, including all expenses paid trips, designer purses and spa packages (to name a few).
  • Whether they win an award or not, every Admin who attends the Gala is treated like royalty. The Admin Awards is widely regarded as the ”Academy Awards for Administrative Professionals”.

What our Partners are Saying

Perhaps the color purple was carefully selected for the Admin Awards since the theme of royalty was in all the details! The team did a great job in making every attendee feel special: red carpet, beautiful décor, swag, prizes, all splashed in shades of purple. Most notably, it was a lovely time to recognize & appreciate the professionals in all industries presently, before us and those forthcoming. The Admin Awards filled a much-needed niche. I cannot wait to see what’s planned for next year!
