over 30 years of celebrating success

The plc awards was founded in 1987 and is usually held every year in March. These awards are open to all those companies listed on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange – colloquially known as the “plc club”. The success of the awards has led to it being broadened out to include FTSE100 companies as well as the FTSE250, FTSE Small Cap and Fledgling indices. Our aim is to truly make it ‘the’ City event of the year and to allow all Main Market publicly quoted companies, of whatever size, the chance to be rewarded and recognised for their successes and achievements.

The event is attended by plc company chairmen, CEOs, CFOs, investment bankers, fund managers, analysts, IR executives, corporate advisers and pre-IPO companies.

The event


Sponsorship opportunities sometimes become available, including sponsorship of an individual award, sponsorship of the official drinks reception or sponsorship of the menu. Sponsorship opportunities are, by their very nature, limited. Costs and availability on request.

Hosting a table

Reservations are available for tables of ten people. Numbers are strictly limited and reservations are taken on a first come, first served basis.


Advertising in the brochure is welcomed and enables your key messages to reach a highly targeted audience. The event brochure is available on the night and contains details of all the nominees, the programme for the night, the running order and the menu. Uniquely, it also contains the names of all attendees, in alphabetical and table order. Thus it is widely used as a corporate finance reference guide for up to a year after the event.

Bespoke sponsorship opportunities

We offer a range of bespoke sponsorship packages, tailor made to suit your marketing objectives and budget. Further information on request.

Since formation in 1987, the plc awards has held a charity collection principally for the benefit of child-focused charities. The total amount of money raised to date by attendees at plc awards dinners is over £600,000. Thank you so much for your generosity – the charities concerned are all extremely grateful. 

A charity collection was held at the plc awards 2021 and the total amount raised, which was split equally between our supported charities, bccs and Plan International UK, was:


One in every ten children has a diagnosable mental health disorder – that’s roughly three in every classroom. A recent survey conducted also found 22% of girls and 9% of boys were self-harming. These alarming statistics demonstrate just how important it is to look after children’s mental health.

bccs is a children’s charity covering East London and Essex, with the primary focus of providing counselling for children and young adults whose wellbeing, mental or emotional health is at risk.


Plan International UK is a global children’s charity working with children, especially girls, growing up in some of the world’s poorest communities. The charity makes sure they have access to the education, health care, clean water and future opportunities they need to thrive, as well as promoting girls’ rights.

Plan UK also responds when disasters happen by providing emergency relief and supporting communities to recover, rebuild and develop their resilience. As a member of the DEC (Disasters Emergency Committee), Plan UK are working on the ground with local partners at Ukraine’s borders in response to the ongoing crisis, providing child protection and psychosocial support as well as cash support for families and educational support. All money raised for Plan International UK at the plc awards will go towards the emergency response in Ukraine.
