IR Magazine Announces the Hong Kong and Taiwan Conference & Awards 2009
Nominees Shortlist 
London and Hong Kong, Nov 30, 2009 - (ACN Newswire) - IR magazine, the
international voice of investor relations, continued its commitment to Asian
IR as it returns to Hong Kong for the ninth annual Hong Kong and Taiwan
Conference & Awards in December 2009. 
What to expect from the IR Magazine Hong Kong and Taiwan Conference 
- Thought-provoking, well-researched agenda - focusing on the issues emerging
in the wake of the financial crisis that are most relevant to IROs, their
companies and their boards. 
- High percentage of senior-level investor relations officers - speaking
alongside leading regulatory and government authorities and members of the
investment community. 
- The best investor relations networking opportunity of 2009 - meet and mingle
with like-minded peers at our conference and awards, which attract the best
attendees year on year from a wide range of sectors and market caps. 
New for 2009 
We are delighted to announce that in 2009 Thomson Reuters Extel Surveys is
working in partnership with IR magazine to provide the most comprehensive and
complete awards research to date. It will identify and recognize the leading
IR practitioners across Asia. 
The Thomson Reuters Extel IR Survey is designed to provide companies with a
consistent and clear method of assessing the success of the year-round
investor relations activity that underpins both the stock price and the
company's reputation. The methodology has been drawn up in consultation
with leading IR professionals, fund managers and analysts, and reflects their
chief concerns. 
There will be three separate awards events in 2009: the IR Magazine South East
Asia Awards in Singapore, the Hong Kong & Taiwan Awards in Hong Kong, and
the China Awards in Shanghai. 
But it's not all about Winning 
Obviously, there can be only one winner in each category. But the other
companies listed in the research also represent some of the best people in the
field. Being named in the research survey means a company's IR efforts
have made an impression on the investment community. Therefore, we award
Certificates of Excellence to those companies meeting a designated threshold
of significant number of mentions in the survey. The certificate recognizes
the significant efforts many IR teams have made throughout the year.
