Marketing Agencies Association Worldwide
The home for mentoring, networking, collaborating and intelligence.
2020 was the most challenging year many of us have faced and the way we do business has likely changed forever. Through this, MAA Worldwide has continued to help its members through mentoring, networking, collaborating and intelligence.
We have successfully introduced agencies to global partners, helped them to respond to briefs, provided data and research and acted as mentors and friends to CEO’s and business owners across the world.
Sadly, we were forced to cancel our annual summits. Paris in 2019 because of civil unrest (the epicentre was around our chosen hotel) and Montreal in 2020, due to the pandemic.
The uncertainty continues but if we can help in any way please contact us.
We look forward to catching up with you soon, hopefully in person. Until then we both wish you a very healthy, happy and safe 2021.
Simon Mahoney, President
Like many Award programmes, we had no option but to postpone the 2020 MAA GLOBES, due to the effects of the global pandemic.
However, we are delighted to announce the launch of the 35th MAA GLOBES with new and
global partners plus a new Covid 19 entry category which will undoubtedly show just how adaptable, intuitive and creative, agencies are!
The biggest change is that campaigns that are eligible for entry are those that have already run in 2020 plus campaigns that will run have run in 2021.
The call for entries opens on February 1 on: www.maawglobes.com
Finally, a massive thanks to our Award Partners across the world, new and old, for their continued support in ensuring the MAA GLOBES remains the only global programme that truly recognises the Best of the Best.

The ability to meet or talk privately with marketing champions who have sold their businesses, organised and managed MBOs or have bought businesses and built international groups is a unique MAA Worldwide member benefit. And it’s covered by your membership fee.
The networking opportunities are invaluable. Fellow peers share their insights and new business opportunities with like-minded members. We guarantee these networking opportunities will provide new and valuable learnings that will change your business for the better. And if you ever need a partner business to help you with insights on a pitch, or to provide services for you in a different geography, your fellow members are your first point of contact.
Running a marcomms business means sleepless nights! But you’ll be surprised to know that the same things that worry you, worry every other principal, wherever they are in the world. And many have identified the causes and devised solutions that address every issue…and are more than happy to share those precious insights to help you help your business and feel better for it! This unique collaboration is realized through our summit workshops and white papers.
Our members share intelligence and information with each other on and offline and the keynote speakers who attend our summits not only present insights into their markets but also join our unique workshop programme, allowing you to share their expertise and priceless insights with your teams and of course, your clients.
In addition, you will have a number of benefits, as well as access to the GLOBES archives allowing you to see the ideas and processes from across the globe that have resulted in the winners proving they are truly “the best of the best”
The MAA Worldwide is truly unique. Over the past 50 years the association has evolved to meet the demands and ever changing roles of the entrepreneurs it represents. It remains focused on understanding and addressing both the business and personal needs of Principals, CEO’s, Presidents, Directors, and Senior personnel of Marketing Communication companies, including agencies and marketing support organisations, regardless of discipline, sector, size or geography.
The MAA Worldwide has often been described by its members as the “best kept secret” so it’s unlikely that you just stumbled upon us. You were probably introduced to us by a trusted friend, or you heard about us through our GLOBES award programme.
Either way, we're glad you're here.
"Membership provides a wealth of best practices and idea sharing from across the globe"
