Performance Marketing World (PMW) has partnered this year with the Influencer Marketing Trade Body (IMTB) for its major conference - PMW Unlocked.
Held in London in early March, PMW Unlocked is a two-day conference and exhibition operated by the Haymarket Media Group title designed for marketers within influencer marketing, AI tech and data, and ecommerce.
IMTB is set to chair the event’s Creator Stage, hosting a curated agenda of panel sessions, presentations and fireside chats with senior influencer marketers.
Speaking about the event to be held at London’s Business Design Centre, Robin Langford, editor of Performance Marketing World, said:
"PMW Unlocked is back, with a new location, bigger stages, more delegates and an exciting new line up of renowned speakers to equip you with all you need to succeed in what will be a transformational year for the marketing industry.
"With the creator economy set to play an even more crucial part of the marketing mix in 2024, PMW is thrilled to partner with the Influencer Marketing Trade Body and bring in the expertise of its founder Scott Guthrie to helm the Creator Stage at PMW Unlocked. We hope that IMTB members will take advantage of their discount and join us for the must attend marketing event of the year."
IMTB’s Scott Guthrie commented:
“Influencer marketing has a bright future ahead but its full potential can only be realised when brands, agencies, platforms and creators act responsibly, taking seriously their obligations to each other and to consumers.
“I am thrilled that PMW Unlocked has chosen to partner with the IMTB and has asked us to host the Creator Stage. I’m looking forward to learning from my peers about new trends and best practices within our industry.”

IMTB represents influencer marketing on the Committee of Advertising Practice ("CAP") as a member. CAP is responsible for writing and updating the rules on advertising in the UK via the CAP (Non-broadcast Advertising) Code.
CAP is the sister organisation of the Advertising Standards Authority ("ASA") - the UK’s independent advertising regulator that administers the CAP Code to keep ads legal, decent, honest and truthful.
IMTB co-owns the Influencer Marketing Code of Conduct alongside ISBA. The Code, first launched in September 2021 and updated in May 2022, aims to standardise good practices and guidance with brands, agencies and creators. It covers areas including disclosure, transparency, pay parity, and effective representation.
