Annual Report Rating 2020: high viewing figures for a “live thriller”

On 24 September 2020, the 30th Annual Report Rating awards were held at the SIX Convention Point conference centre in Zurich. A red letter day for the business world and a special one for the history books, as the event was streamed live for the first time.

As with many events, the COVID-19 pandemic led to changes in the way the Annual Report Rating awards were organised. For one thing, the seating in the auditorium had to remain largely empty. But that didn’t mean the event took place before a small audience: for the first time in its history, the proceedings were streamed live.

Hans-Peter Nehmer, a member of the HarbourClub’s board refused to let the unusual circumstances dampen his spirits. And the fact that the nominees were physically present meant the audience in their offices and living rooms could share in the crackling tension.

Out of 241 submissions, the high-calibre jury selected the winners in the categories Value Reporting and Design. The competition also saw Text allocated its own category for the first time. There were further awards for the year’s rising stars, and one annual report was catapulted into the limelight in the form of the GR Oscar. Apostroph Group congratulates all the winners. We are particularly pleased that Geberit – the market leader in the field of sanitary products and one of our customers – was able to claim overall victory.

And in case you were wondering, the rating figures for the awards were most heartening, thanks to the great interest shown in the event. It could well be that popcorn sales went up accordingly!
