It’s that time of the year again; time for the M&A Awards!
You will be surrounded by 1200 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.
Professionals simply cannot afford to miss out
The M&A Community Team is proud that 1200 professionals from the business sector, private equity, corporates, investment banking, corporate finance, consultancy and the legal profession come together each year during the M&A Awards.
First come, first served!
Get the party going with a glass of champagne (ABN AMRO Escrow & Settlement) and a spiced up cocktail (Loyens & Loeff). Relax into the festive spirit and enjoy the dinner and ceremony.
Main Act 2019: André Hazes Jr.
