Join us in celebrating the best deals

The M&A Awards is the annual landmark event for professionals working in M&A, corporate finance, private equity and venture capital. The M&A Awards gather dealmakers from across the country at a black-tie gala dinner. Join 500 rainmakers on the 23rd of November 2023, when we celebrate the best deals of the period October 2022 - September 2023. Given the success of the event, we upgrade to a bigger venue: Paleis 10/Palais 10 of Brussels Expo. This unique art deco building offers plenty of possibilities for a festive evening with reception, award ceremony and gala dinner. Welcome!

    About the process

    The M&A Community (advisors, PE funds, VC funds, involved dealmakers) endorses deals for the M&A Awards. Out of these endorsements, an experienced jury chooses the nominees and winners in accordance with the criteria defined in the regulations. Read more about the process here.

    As from the 2021 edition, Vlerick Business School is Knowledge Partner of the M&A Awards.

    An experienced jury

    Six captains of industry and experts cast their votes for each of the Awards categories. In 2023, we welcome Lieve Creten as the new chairwoman of the jury. She takes over from Urbain Vandeurzen, who was the chairman of the jury for five years. You can read more about the members of the jury here.
