Doug Leddin of An Pucán and previous winner of the People’s Choice Award and the Social Media Award in 2016 stated, “It was just fantastic the whole OMiG experience in 2015.

This year OMiG are pleased to welcome AIB as the headline sponsor for the OMiG Digital Marketing Awards 2017. AIB were a natural fit due to their involvement and support with the PorterShed in Eyre Square.   Maricka Burke-Keogh, Founder of OMiG, and full time PorterShed tenant as Head of Digital Marketing in Altocloud, stated;

“The central location, the team and the stakeholders behind the PorterShed, including Mary Rogers, Community Manager and all the partners and sponsors have been a superb support to OMiG to date. The organic business community that has been created within the PorterShed has led to OMiG using the facilities as a base more for their meet ups and events. With AIB’s involvement with the Portershed as a main sponsor, the partnership for the OMiG Awards and future events this year made perfect sense”.

Evin Cusack, Head of AIB Galway, welcomed OMiG to its commitment to ‘backing brave’.

“AIB is delighted to sponsor the Online Marketing in Galway awards for 2017. OMIG is a great organisation that creates awareness and understanding of how digital marketing strategies can have a positive lasting impact on business growth and brand reputation. These awards recognise those businesses that have embraced this innovation and are striving for growth. This sponsorship is another illustration of AIB’s commitment to backing brave”.

The OMiG digital marketing awards will take place on Friday 26th April at the Town Hall Theatre, Galway.  The awards ceremony is a must attend event for those involved in digital marketing.  Along with the celebration of the winners and finalists, we will once again be hosting a panel discussion by some of Ireland’s Top Digital Marketing Executives. Full details will be announced in two weeks.  Early bird tickets are priced at €10 and are now available at

The awards are held in partnership with Galway’s Local Enterprise Office, the Connacht Tribune Group, Bentley Productions, Cantec, and this year we are proud to have AIB as our main events sponsors.
