Celebrate the best deals and dealmakers of 2020

The M&A Awards will be hosted after a time of lockdown and isolation and in a time of social distancing. It will be a reunion of sorts and a celebration of the resilience of Dutch business in general, and the M&A profession in particular. We expect this year’s event to be the most exclusive ever.

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

Over 500 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 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.
