It is expected that 1,000 of Ireland’s business, political and social leaders will attend the celebration on 12th April, 2022, five days from today.

Ian Hyland, publisher of Business & Finance, welcomed the return of an in-person gala awards ceremony, saying: “The Business & Finance Awards programme will embrace and reflect the dynamic global market in which Irish businesses operate, particularly in a post-COVID world. This year’s awards will follow and recognise outstanding entrepreneurs, business leaders and leadership teams on their journey into what is now a new normal for business.”
