COMPANIES ACROSS EUROPE INVITED TO ENTER PRESTIGIOUS AWARDS IN ITS TENTH YEAR

The European Business Awards and lead sponsor RSM have today announced the opening of the tenth European Business Awards; Europe’s largest business competition, showcasing Europe’s best.

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.

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, supported by UK Trade and Investment, ELITE and PR Newswire.”

Jean Stephens, CEO of RSM, the sixth largest network of audit, tax and consulting firms and the lead sponsor of the European Business Awards, said: “It has been a pleasure to be involved with the European Business Awards since its inception and we are proud to remain lead sponsor as the programme moves into its tenth year. The longevity and rising popularity of the Awards is testament to the benefits it brings to businesses across the continent and beyond. We look forward to supporting another hard-fought competition between the best companies in Europe."

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.
