About this event

This has now taken place.


After a brief hiatus in 2019, The ITAM Review Excellence Awards returns in 2020 for its fifth year!

This year, we continued to receive high quality nominations for international ITAM professionals, service providers, technology vendors, and specialists who are demonstrating excellence and innovation in the ITAM industry. In fact, we received more nominations than ever before! Check out the 2020 shortlist here.

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to proceed with our planned in-person Gala Dinner, but fear not! Celebrating the awesomeness within ITAM is always important, especially now, and the show must go on – so The ITAM Review invites you to our virtual awards ceremony on Tuesday 5th May at 4pm BST.

Join us for an hour of celebrations and award giving – shining a light on innovation and excellence in the ITAM market.

This ceremony is free to attend however, we politely ask that attendees make a donation (of any size) to our chosen organisation – The NHS, who are on the frontline of this global crisis helping save lives. Our chosen charity ‘Masks for NHS Heroes‘ are raising funds to provide Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to protect healthcare workers against the Coronavirus while caring for sick patients.
