About the European Business Awards:
The European Business Awards’ primary purpose is to support the development of a stronger and more successful business community throughout Europe.
For all citizens of Europe, prosperity, social and healthcare systems are reliant on businesses creating an even stronger, more innovative, successful, international and ethical business community – one that forms the beating heart of an increasingly globalised economy.
The European Business Awards programme serves the European business community in three ways:
- It celebrates and endorses individuals’ and organisations’ success
- It provides and promotes examples of excellence for the business community to aspire to
- It engages with the European business community to create debate on key issues
The European Business Awards is now in its 9th year. It attracted over 32,000 businesses to the competition last year and in the public vote generated over 170,000 votes from across Europe.
