Due to the current Covid measures the M&A Awards 2021 are rescheduled to March 10th 2022.

Celebrate the best deals and dealmakers of 2021

It’s that time of the year again; time for the M&A Awards! A moment to take a break from your hectic life as a dealmaker and to reflect with your peers and colleagues on the past twelve months. What have been the highlights? Which deals collapsed? And who will be the stars of the M&A show this year?

You will be surrounded by 1000 top-level dealmakers who all have had their successes and failures. This is the night to share, remember and of course celebrate together. Some dealmakers will pay little attention to what’s on their dinner plate during the show, because they are in the race for one of the M&A Awards that will be presented.

Watch the replay of the online M&A Awards 2020.

M&A Awards 2021

Professionals simply cannot afford to miss out

Over 700 experts in the field cast their votes to determine this year’s winners. Only the best professionals, firms and transactions will take home an award. Having said that, you, winner or not, play an important role in the world of mergers and acquisitions. It’s you, who shapes the future of our corporate landscape. The M&A Awards are here to honour the transactions and the hard-working professionals who made them happen.

A festive evening to reflect the past year

You will meet with 1000 top-level dealmakers who all have had their successes and failures in the Beurs van Berlage. This is the night to share, remember and of course celebrate together. Get the party going with a glass of champagne and a spiced up cocktail. Relax into the festive spirit and enjoy the dinner and ceremony.

Join the after party with DJ and Tino Martin as special guest and network with your peers. The M&A Awards is a festive evening of fine dining, amazing highlights and the opportunity to congratulate the best dealmakers and investors. This is the perfect opportunity to thank your customers and employees.

The M&A Community Team is proud that 1000 professionals from the business sector, private equity, investment banking, corporate finance, consultancy and the legal profession come together each year during the M&A Awards.
