IR Magazine Awards – Europe 2017: full list of winners

Jun 22, 2017
<p>The best IR teams in Europe revealed</p>

On Wednesday, June 21, 2017, the IR Magazine Awards ‒ Europe honoured excellence in the investor relations profession. The awards, now in its 27th year, hosted the IR community from across Europe at The Park Lane Hotel in London.

In 2017, we presented two types of awards categories – researched and self-nomination – both celebrating the success of those individuals and companies that are leading the way in the IR community over the past year.

For our researched categories, companies did not submit nominations. Instead, across Europe, thousands of analysts and investors cast their votes and gave their opinions on which companies do the best IR in Europe.

In our self-nomination categories, we offered companies the opportunity to nominate themselves, free of charge, for aspects of IR that complement our researched categories. Below you can see all the night's winners:
