Best Practice Awards

The IR Society’s flagship Best Practice Awards have influenced many improvements in investor relations practice over the years and are a much prized recognition of best in class performance.

Now in their 17th year, the Awards recognise those companies that have demonstrated their strong understanding of, and proactive efforts to promote, clear and consistent investor communications. Judges are drawn from the investor relations profession and the investment community.

Please note that entries for the 2017 awards are now closed, but please do join us at the IR Society Annual Dinner on Tuesday 21 November when we announce the winners!

The culmination of months of hard work by the comapnies and agencies who entered the awards, the IR Society Annual Dinner is a leading event in the IR calendar.

This gala dinner, which last year attracted almost 600 IR professionals, features a champagne reception, four course meal, the presenation of the Best Practice Awards and a host of other entertainment, as well as an unbeatable opportunity to network with peers.
