Small Cap Awards 2020 Shortlist Announcement
Virtual Awards Webinar Event to take place on Thursday 25th June
The Small Cap Awards is an annual opportunity to recognise outstanding achievement focused on smaller quoted companies. The Shortlist of nominees has now been confirmed.
The winners in each category will be announced on Thursday 25th June at the Awards Webinar and will celebrate success for UK listed Small Caps.
The Small Cap Awards Dinner was originally scheduled to take place at the Montcalm Hotel on the 25th of June.
Under the circumstances however, it was felt that a virtual awards ceremony would provide the best available opportunity to celebrate the best of the UK Small Cap community.
Since its founding in mid-2012, the Small Cap Network has successfully enabled the small and micro-cap sector to meet, share updates and insights and foster new ideas and opportunities. The awards have always shone a light on the best companies and individuals in the community across eleven categories.
The Small Cap Awards committee is delighted to have the continued support of Hamlins LLP as headline partners for the awards.
Daniel Bellau, Corporate Finance Partner and Head of Corporate at Hamlins LLP said:
“We are delighted and proud to be the long term sponsors of this event. As specialists working with small cap quoted companies we consider that , right now, it is more important than ever that we recognise the very best that small cap community has to offer.”
The shortlist has been selected by a judging panel comprised of leaders in the Small Cap sector and is Chaired by Claire Noyce, CEO at Hybridan LLP. The full judging panel and award categories and shortlisted companies can be viewed here:
The winners in each category will be announced on Thursday 25th June at the Awards Webinar to be held in London and will celebrate success for UK listed Small Caps.
