The IPM has just launched The COGS Awards 2013. In 2012 we won awards in two categories Prize Incentive Supplier and Promotional Merchandise. This year we’d love to pick up more accolades and as The COGS are a voting driven exercise, we’re told that it doesn’t do any harm to do a bit of canvassing ourselves to get onto the shortlist of potential winners.
We’re very proud of the work we do for our clients and these are the awards that recognise agencies like us who work seamlessly behind the scenes to create and fulfil great campaigns. If you’ve worked with us over the past two years and enjoyed the experience, please vote for us by clicking here and completing the voting form – it only takes a couple of minutes.
We’re eligible for the following categories:
• The Individual Award – nominate someone in our business who has helped make your lives that much easier
• Company of the Year – a special award which goes to that one services company judged to be the best of the best across all of the different business categories
• Prize Incentivisation – if one of our prizes or incentives has given your campaign the edge, please vote for us in this category
If you have something lovely to say about us, feel free to spread the word and help us win at The COGS Awards 2013. Call us on +44 (0)207 407 5566 to find out more.

This incentive experience gives clients the chance to get up close and personal with the FC Barcelona football team as they travel in a private charter with the players. Meet the players at the check-in desk surrounded by the national press, hang out with the team in the departure lounge, have pictures taken and collect the player’s autographs.
Once on the plane your clients will be sat within a few feet of one of the greatest football teams in the world. The experience continues with the game where we hope you’ll see a display of footballing genius. Then after the match soak up the euphoria or disappointment with the players on the return flight. The experience includes a return flight, a private charter, match tickets and transport services.

We recently sent a winner on a zero g flight which simulates the sensations of flying in space. The winner floated in the cabin during the zero g manoeuvres and experienced the feeling of being weightless. Marty said “The weightless zero g flight was awesome. We did 12 parabolic arcs and in some of them I was trying to gulp down water that was floating around me in little spheres…thank you again for an amazing prize – I’m still dreaming that it actually happened.”

It’s time to shed those winter coats, unwrap those scarves, and un-sniffle those noses. The clouds are parting, and the sun is finally smiling down on Great British isles, which can only mean one thing:
It’s time to hit the beach.
Well, beach/pool/local fountain, basically the nearest large body of water that will sufficiently soak you and make you feel that summer has well and truly arrived. But of course, summer would not be complete without the latest feel-good tunes pounding in your ears, which creates a challenge for those looking to submerge themselves with a spot of snorkelling or general splashing about. Well, not anymore, thanks to the new Speedo Aquabeat water proof MP3 player.
That’s right, swimming has now joined the big leagues of activities you can do to a beat, thanks to this nifty little 1GB MP3 player that you can clip to your trunks. Waterproof up to 3 metres, this aquatic wonder will even float to the surface should it come loose, ensuring that you’ll never be without your favourite playlists when splashing about in the water this summer!
