AM Awards 2020

The 2020 AM Awards will take place on Thursday, February 13 at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham.

An evening dedicated to acknowledging exemplary performance and innovation is fundamentally important to our industry; high achievers deserve their time in the spotlight.

But the AM Awards is much more than a glitzy night out among friends and colleagues.

An AM Award brings with it the respect of the industry and publicly acknowledges the importance of your people and helps to strengthen the confidence of an individual or teams – as well as provide an independent mark of quality in your business that can be incorporated into your marketing strategy.

BDO will once again independently audit the AM Awards.
