AGM Key Highlights
AGM Logistics

The needs and requirements largely vary across different companies but still driven by expected interest in attendance by shareholders and the Board of Directors (“BOD”) attitude towards its AGM as a communication event. Hotel’s continue to be the preferred choice of venue for the majority of companies to enable the facilitation of large shareholder crowds. However, we have observed an emerging trend towards simple venue layouts with minimal refreshments to ensure full participation and engagement on pertinent issues.
