The Concert Marketing & Promotion Award recognizes a sponsorship or promotion that benefited the concert industry at large by stimulating attendance to live events, providing value to fans, and promoting the artist and brands involved. The sponsorship or promotion must achieve its marketing goal in a quantifiable way, and it can be a tour title sponsorship, a venue naming rights deal, a touring artist's endorsement deal, a single show sponsor, a festival sponsorship, a multifaceted tour sponsorship integration, or other deal, as long as it pertains to live performance that took place between Jan. and Sept. 2009.

Last year's CM&P Award winner was the Jonas Brothers Burnin' Up tour with Burger King. This year's winner will be determined by online voting at the newly relaunched, beginning Sept. 9.
