Due to the continuing uncertainty over COVID-19, the Solent Deals Awards will now be staged on November 18, 2020 – as part of the Thames Valley Deals Awards ceremony.

The event will take place at the Madejski Stadium, Reading, and will include categories from the Solent Deals Awards.

Regular presenter Mark Durden-Smith will host the awards – the key event in the region’s corporate finance calendar.

Staged by The Business Magazine, the event is planned for November to give organisers more chance of staging a physical event.

“We are hoping that restrictions will be eased by November so that we can hold a live event and welcome all our regular guests to this awards night. For this year only, we are also combining the Thames Valley event with some awards categories from the Solent region, to make this a celebration of southern success,” said David Murray, The Business Magazine managing director.

Judging for the Thames Valley Deals has already taken place, but Solent categories are open for entries and will be judged in the autumn.

The Deals Awards evening

6:15 pm drinks reception, 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm Awards dinner.
