I attended the MM+M Awards for the first time in October 2014. I’d joined the publication full-time a few months prior but a non-work-related circumstance — the arrival of our second child — kept me from engaging with anyone outside of a small set of colleagues. The awards, then, were set to be my industry debutante ball.
What surprised me most was the sense of easy collegiality. The other industry-specific award ceremonies I’d attended were sleepy affairs populated by individuals who didn’t want to win so much as vanquish. Without the individual acclaim, well, why even bother?
That first MM+M Awards ceremony, by contrast, felt more like a well-dressed house party. My lingering memory of the night came after one high-profile campaign bested another in the evening’s most competitive category. On the way back to his table, the leader of the winning team was practically tackled by a member of the runner-up contingent. “Your [work] was better than our [work]!” the latter hollered. “I’m so glad you do what you do!” Aggressively enthusiastic hugs ensued.
That kinship is what differentiates the MM+M Awards from other industry shindigs. Are there interpersonal rivalries and bruised egos? Probably. But attendees largely push those aside in favor of celebrating the collective good.
In 2022 more than recent years, there’s plenty to celebrate. Barring a ferocious last-minute viral resurgence, we’ll be back at full capacity for the first time since October 2019. It might have been easier to navigate between tables last year, but we’re thrilled to angle our way through a packed house if it means that more of our people are present.
Along those lines, tonight’s ceremony marks the culmination of eight months’ worth of impossibly devoted work by members of the MM+M and Haymarket Media events, commercial, marketing, production, executive and editorial teams. Here’s to them, you and all of us collectively raising a glass in the spirit of community. Welcome home, everyone.
