The Drum is to produce new research as it aims to compile a list of the Best UK Agencies.

Scheduled for a release in December, The Drum’s Best UK Agencies publication will research and rate marketing services agencies depending on client and award wins from the year, as well as its financial performance and peer ratings by working with a number of expert partners.

As a result of the review, a final list of 50 agencies will feature in a book profiling them and exploring their success for the year.

The Drum will work alongside former Campaign deputy editor and editor of The School Report, Jeremy Lee in creating the Best UK Agencies list, as well as Brandwatch, The Gunn Report, the Recommended Agency Register (RAR) and Kingston Smith who will provide data to be reviewed.

Stephen Lepitak, editor of The Drum explained: “We recognise that the number of quality marketing services businesses working in the UK continues to grow every year and we plan to help brand marketers find the best of the best through releasing the first high quality research conducted on the sector.”

Lee added: "The Drum's Best UK Agencies is the only rigorous, evidence-based and rounded analysis of agencies annual performance, making it the definitive read for clients and anyone interested in the vibrant and ever-changing UK advertising scene. It seeks to identify and celebrate the best companies to work with, and work for.”
