The forum sessions will be followed by a prestigious awards ceremony and due to popular demand, IR Magazine will once again be presenting two types of awards categories – researched and self-nomination – which honor the industry’s finest IR practitioners across Greater China.

For the awards by research, the winners are determined by an in-depth research process with an independent survey that identifies the best corporate IR teams and individuals across a range of categories. On the contrary, the awards-by-nomination categories offered companies the opportunity to nominate themselves or other publicly listed companies, free of charge, for aspects of IR that complement the IR Magazine research.

Nominees for both sets of award categories have been announced! To view the researched awards nominees, please click http://events.irmagazine.com/greaterchina/#/home/researched-awards/
