Investor Relations Awards, Best Practice category – in partnership with Institutional Investor

The Middle East Investor Relations Association’s 2020 IR Awards scheme is conducted in partnership with Institutional Investor and based on the results of the 2020 Emerging EMEA Executive Team survey. Votes run from 2 of March to 3 of April, 2020. Nominees will be announced on July 2020. Each year, buy-side and sell-side analysts are invited to participate in the survey which looks at IR performance of listed corporates in the Middle East region. Survey participants are encouraged to vote for the top performers in each market.

Best Digital IR Award - Self-entry category

In the context of the COVID-19 outbreak, the traditional Best IR Website Award has now been transformed into the Best Digital IR Award.

In this new category, the judges will not only recognise the best IR site, but also consider the efforts that companies have undertaken in this bold new virtual world of IR, including IR use of social media channels, videos, virtual AGMs and any other form of communication with the investment community.

Nominees will be announced in September 2020 and the winners will be announced at the MEIRA Awards Ceremony on 23 September 2020.

Best Annual Report Award - Self-entry category

The Best Annual Report Award is a self-entry category and the results will be based on the selection and review done by the judging panel. There are two separate categories, print and digital.

The award is open to any company listed in the Middle East and entries can be submitted by the company itself or by any third-party on behalf of the company (agency, advisor, banker, lawyer).

Nominees will be announced in September 2020 and the winners will be announced at the MEIRA Awards Ceremony on 23 September 2020.
