The European Business Awards for 2016-2017 are open


RSM PALEA LAURI GERLA calls for the best businesses to enter as prestigious awards opens for its 10th year

RSM PALEA LAURI GERLA invites the best businesses from Italy to enter Europe’s largest business competition as the European Business Awards, sponsored by RSM, opens for its 10th year, giving the best companies in Europe the chance to showcase their success.  

The competition was set up to recognise and reward excellence, best practice and innovation across the European business community. Last year it attracted interest from over 32,000 organisations from 33 countries, generated over 170,000 votes from the public, and the chosen companies had a combined revenue of over €1.2 trillion.

Kristian Bresciani said: “Hundreds of companies from Italy were honoured last year for their great success, including 8 RdHs who made it to the grand final. We encourage as many businesses as possible to enter this year and get the recognition they deserve.”

Adrian Tripp, CEO of The European Business Awards, said: “For all of us as citizens of Europe the success of our business community is critical. We are pleased to play our part by showcasing and promoting the best companies, sharing knowledge, and stimulating the debate about the future shape, form and substance of Europe. We look forward to doing this again this year because we believe in the future of Europe.”

He continued: "We wouldn't be able to do this without the support of our sponsors and we are pleased once again to announce RSM as our lead sponsor this year.”

The competition is free to enter, and includes three phases of judging, two phases of public voting and involves over 130 high calibre judges to decide the final winners of the 11 categories.

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 10th 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.
