This year IR Magazine is celebrating its 30th anniversary. The IR Magazine Awards - Europe (now in their 28th year) are also continuing to honour excellence in the investor relations profession. This years event was held at the impressive Northumberland Avenue venue in London where there were over 250 attendees.
There were a number of different awards categories including Best IR Website, Best Financial Reporting, and Best ESG communications to name a few. On the evening, our very own Jim Robinson - Director of Corporate Reporting and Investor Relations - presented two separate awards.
The first award was for 'Best Financial Reporting' in the 'Small-Cap' category. This award went to The Go-Ahead Group and was collected by Mark Ferriday, Group Financial Controller.
The second award was for 'Best Financial Reporting' in the 'Mid-Cap' category, where Melanie Hall, Group Company Secretary collected the winning award for Dechra Pharmaceuticals PLC.
Overall, it was a fantastic event and a great networking opportunity. The main host, comedian Stephen K Amos, kept the audience very much entertained and was side-splittingly funny throughout the entire evening.
A huge congratulations to the winners who picked up awards at the ceremony. Jones and Palmer were proud sponsors at this years event, it was great to be a part of it and we look forward to being there again in 2019!
