Loyalty360 Awards 2014 Panel of Judges

For the inaugural Loyalty360 Awards we have called on a robust group of industry experts to apply their extensive knowledge of loyalty marketing to identify the brands that are true Loyalty leaders.

Loyalty360 put a number of measures in place to enable our judges to be as objective and unbiased as possible. Entrants are encouraged to submit performance metrics, allowing judges to consider empirical evidence of the effectiveness and success of their strategies.  Nominations are scrubbed of explicit references to marketing taglines, company, product and program names before the judging process. Judges are required to agree to a Code of Conduct, including terms on handling confidential information and non-solicitation of the companies who are participating. We are pleased that the rigorous judging process will help us identify true leaders in Loyalty Marketing.
