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!
