voting panel

Voting procedure
A combination of postal, telephone and electronic nominations, supplied by techMARK companies, their corporate advisors, analysts, brokers and bankers will be used this year to determine a "long list" of nominees in each of the "voted for" categories. The credentials of the nominees will be debated at length by the full Voting Panel who will meet for dinner at the offices of PwC. This debate and discussion will result in a short list of nominees, and a winner, in each category.

TechMARK companies and their advisors, and technology fund managers, will be polled direct in respect of the techMARK Analyst of the Year Award, while the Technology Fund Manager of the Year award is a straightforward factual award, based on published performance data.
