They will be hosted live by Adam Buss, chief executive of QUAD, along with the Mainframe team, which consists of Charlene Sharp and Hana York.

Ahead of the ceremony, Mainframe has published the shortlists – and a number of Marketing Derby Bondholders are among the finalists.

Among the nominees in the Putting Derby/Derbyshire on the Map category is Keith Cox, from Bloc Digital.
