The IPE Conference & Awards has been rewarding excellence in Europe's highly diverse and innovative pensions industry for 20 years and is the premier event of its kind with the largest annual gathering of pension funds in Europe.  
In 2019, we received 434 entries across 43 categories from pension funds from worth collectively €2 trillion.
These institutions represent some 74.6 million pension fund members in 22 different countries across Europe.
These entries were judged by a judging roster of 90+ judges. 


The IPE Conference now comprises three days of in-depth and highly topical debate sessions, featuring inspiring keynotes, practical panels all presented virtually. 

With typically 300 top executives from pension providers in attendance, the event will brings together influential decision-makers from across Europe.


The IPE Awards each year recognise the bar-raising achievements of the diverse pension funds across Europe and celebrate excellence by creating a meaningful broad set of benchmarks.
This prestigious event culminates daily with the Awards Ceremony, when the highly commended and winners in more than 40 categories are revealed.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

With regards to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak the
IPE Conference & Awards will now take place virtually on the 02, 03 & 04 December 2020.

Due to COVID-19 affecting travel and the current (& potentially ongoing) government quarantine restrictions, we have taken the decision to convert the IPE Conference and Awards 2020 into a live virtual event. It has been a very difficult decision to make but the safety of all those attending the event is paramount. We hope that informing you of this decision now minimises any disruption to your travel and diary plans.

The health and safety of everyone attending our events is our number one priority. For regular updates on attending an IPE Event please contact the IPE Events Team at

We look forward to welcoming you to our in person events in 2021.
