2015 SECTOR PERFORMANCE AWARDS
Who has voted for me?
The voting forms have been sent out to the 108,000 subscribers of AI Magazine along with 1.8 million industry professionals, we accept both self and third party nominations. Additionally, Acquisition International has put forward a selection of candidates who we believe to be industry leaders.
Will nominees find out who voted for them?
No, the voting process is strictly confidential and we do not require personal information in order to cast a vote.
How have you ensured the voting process is legitimate?
To ensure that a firm cannot guarantee success by submitting multiple votes, we track the IP addresses of the voters. We do exercise this with some caution though as we appreciate that multiple people in the same office may wish to cast votes.
How do you determine the winners?
Winners are determined by three factors: 1) votes received 2) via in-house research (a vital component considering we accept self-nominations as well as third party) 3) by assessing the supporting evidence provided. All items are taken into consideration when determining the winners.
What do winners receive?
Beyond using the award to gain recognition within their own respective market, winners are entitled to a free listing on our website.
Is there a charge if I go on to win?
No, there is no cost associated with winning an award. All winners will receive the free website listing, elevated packages and trophies are available to all winners at a cost.
When will the winners be announced?
Winners will be advised of their award in July and we will publicly release our official winners supplement shortly thereafter. We have an embargo in place until we publicly announce the results and ask winners to respect this; all winners will be notified when the embargo is lifted.
Is there an awards dinner?
