The gala dinner for the IR Magazine Awards – Canada, coming up on February 4, 2015, remains the Canadian IR community’s largest annual gathering. It is an evening of unforgettable celebration and networking for investor relations officers along with their senior managements, advisers and analysts.  

For the last quarter-century the IR Magazine Awards have honored excellence in investor relations around the world. Across North America, Europe and Asia, tens of thousands of analysts and investors have cast their votes and given their opinions in our investment community surveys. The result: vital benchmarking information on which companies do the best IR. 

In recent years the awards program has expanded to recognize more aspects of investor relations, particularly the contributions of senior management, as well as to identify the best IR by sector. In addition, the awards research now covers the perspective of winning companies in addition to the views of analysts and investors.

The IR Magazine Euro Leaders Think Tank is an invitation-only event and enables senior IROs to discuss, debate and dissect topical issues affecting European IR.

The event’s unique format, where the audience drives the debate and engages its peers in discussion, is far removed from the traditional conference set-up and provides an unparalleled opportunity for IROs to interact with their peers across Europe. Neil Stewart, editor-at-large of IR Magazine, will be the host and moderator.

The key feature of the think tank format is its interactive, informal nature, which allows attendees to have frank, open discussions in the knowledge they can talk freely because none of their comments will be quoted.

The event is divided into three sessions and the format is as follows:

1. Senior people – from IR, the financial community or the professions – set the agenda by sharing their thoughts on the session topic.

2. Small, roundtable groups of IROs discuss the issue face to face.

3. Each table gives feedback from its own discussion and shares ideas with the group as a whole.
 

IR Magazine Think Tanks are complimentary, invitation-only events for a select group of senior-level IR professionals.
