Celebrate the best deals and dealmakers of 2020
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?
Professionals simply cannot afford to miss out
A festive evening of fine dining
Be surrounded by 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.
Relax into the festive spirit and enjoy the dinner and ceremony.
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.
