We are happy to announce that Waters magazine will be hosting the inaugural Sell-Side Technology Awards on the evening of April 23 in Manhattan. We are currently in the throes of confirming our judging panel, but pretty much all the other details have been finalized.
Like the annual Buy-Side Technology Awards, the Sell-Side Technology Awards is a call-for-entries program, designed to recognize the leading technologies and third-party vendors in their area of expertise, through an auditable and transparent methodology, underpinned by the input and experience of a judging panel made up of a mix of four sell-side analysts/CIOs and four of Waters magazine's senior staff members. Entry to the awards is free.
Below is a list of the categories on offer. The SST Awards website will be live shortly, detailing the criteria by which each of the categories will be judged. It will also provide information on how to enter the awards, what the judging panel is looking for in each of the 24 categories, and some advice about how entrants should structure their entries. Online entry forms specific to each category will also be available on the website.
Please feel free to contact me directly should you have any queries regarding this year's SST Awards.
