WOMM HALL OF FAME

The WOMM Hall of Fame celebrates the true spirit and power of word of mouth marketing and honors those who are leaders, pioneers, innovators, mentors and collaborators who have given considerable time, effort and energy to the industry.

With so many amazing and talented individuals who have greatly contributed to the advancement and success of the word of mouth marketing industry over the years, there are those who have truly stood head and shoulders above the rest—the best of the best—and should be honored for their achievements and dedication.

The Word of Mouth Marketing Hall of Fame was established in 2014 by the Word of Mouth Marketing Association (WOMMA) to permanently recognize individuals who have made significant, positive contributions to, and have exhibited exemplary ethical conduct within, word of mouth marketing in one or more of the following categories:

  • Lifetime Achievement
  • Thought Leadership
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Education

The 2017 Word of Mouth Marketing (WOMM) Hall of Fame inductees will be honored at our annual awards program on April 26 during Summit 2017. Visit wommasummit.com to purchase tickets.
