IMA Summit Awards

The IMA Summit Awards were created to recognize outstanding efforts from members of our community. This is the perfect opportunity to honor those who have excelled in and made a significant contribution to the industry. The deadline to nominate has passed.
The Excellence Awards (formerly Circle of Excellence) identify and recognize outstanding examples of incentive programs, products and services that are designed and executed by our members. These awards honor the company and the incentive marketing partner for the development and delivery of their program, product or service. Any IMA member is eligible to submit a nomination for consideration. The IMA member must have direct involvement with the project nomination.
