About

over 30 years of celebrating success

The plc awards was founded in 1987 and has been held every year, in March, since then. These awards are open to all those companies listed on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange – colloquially known as the “plc club”.

This year we have widened the criteria for each category to give full emphasis to ESG considerations – covering well known environmental issues, along with social issues and government matters. The awards recognise and reward true achievement when measured against such demanding criteria. 

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

Coronavirus (COVID-19)  

Our updated plans for the plc awards which were scheduled to take place on Thursday 1 October 2020 are as follows…

As you know, due to COVID-19, the awards have already been postponed once from 19 March, and therefore we feel that we are unable to push back the date any further this year. We also feel that it is looking extremely unlikely that government guidelines will be lifted and that large gatherings will be able to take place in the Autumn of 2020.

Therefore, as we already have the shortlist and of course the winners, we have decided, in conjunction with our headline sponsors, that the best course of action is to launch our first ever digital campaign to celebrate the successes and achievements of the companies listed on London Stock Exchange Main Market. We are thrilled and excited to make this announcement. We have London Stock Exchange’s full support, which we are delighted to share with you. Whilst we are disappointed that we can’t all be together as a community to celebrate in person we believe that the digital celebratory campaign will be an exciting opportunity to engage and recognise business success.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued and loyal support as well.


Sponsorship

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

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.


Digital campaign announcing the winners, from 23 September to 8 October 2020

Our digital campaign will commence with a week-long social media campaign, beginning on 23 September, with a teaser video from our main sponsors, Barclays, London Stock Exchange and Blackrock.

This will be followed by seven mini-videos, of a category a day, announcing the winner for each award, with a short acceptance speech from each winner. The grand finale will be a showreel summary. This will all be hosted on London Stock Exchange’s Issuer Services SPARK platform https://www.lsegissuerservices.com/spark

Charity

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. 

2019 charity collection

We are delighted to once again be working with our chosen charity partner for the plc awards, BCCS – further information on our charity can be found below. If you would like to make a donation, please email jo.thomas@ford-sinclair.co.uk and a JustGiving link will be sent to you.


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.
