Recognising excellence, innovation & best practice in Europe
Since its launch in 2006 the European Business Awards has established itself as the ultimate platform for outstanding businesses in Europe. Designed to celebrate exceptional results across a variety of categories ,the EBAs are a global showcase for the best in the business.
Every year the European Business Awards is judged by a prestigious panel of experts and involves some of Europe’s key political figures. Past participants have included Karel De Gucht, European Commissioner for Trade, Yves Leterme, former Prime Minister of Belgium, Emil Constantinescu, former President of Romania; Arnold Rüütel, former President of Estonia; and Petar Stoyanov, former President of Bulgaria; business leaders including, Peter Brabeck-Lethmathe, former CEO of Nestle; Gilbert Ghostine, Managing Director, Diageo Continental Europe; Bożena Lublińska-Kasprzak, President, Polish Agency for Enterprise Development; Philippe Houzé, Chairman, Groupe Galeries Lafayette; Timo Sieg, CEO, Ketchum Pleon Europe and Luc Bardin, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, BP plc, along with top academics and media representatives from Europe’s most influential media owners.
There are no borders in business, and the Awards celebrate successes of the entire European business community, as well as the achievements of individual countries. Every year we receive thousands of entries from businesses far and wide. Due to the quality of the entrants and the rigor of the judging process, only the crème de la crème are selected to represent their country. Finalists receive a Ruban d’Honneur and overall winners earn themselves a prestigious European Business Award, the ultimate honour in European business.
