The Export Industry Awards are organised by the Irish Exporters Association (IEA) to recognise the remarkable achievements of companies working in the export industry.
Companies could enter from 11 Categories and be in with a chance to be selected as the 2016 Exporter of the Year. All winners were announced at an annual Gala Dinner on Friday, 25th November at the Convention Centre in Dublin.
The awards acclaim all export industry sectors recognising emerging exporters as well as established indigenous exporters of manufactured goods and services, and onward to the big hitting multinational exporters. There is an opportunity for companies trading successfully in tough European markets and for those companies trading in high growth markets. Entrants may range from small start-up companies to large international corporations depending on the category.
Companies are welcome to enter more than one category. The overall Exporter of the Year 2016 is selected from the winners of the individual categories.
Designed in conjunction with KPMG and UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School, the new Alumni Programme is open to past category winners and former shortlisted Export Industry Award winners. The alumni programme includes workshops and a masterclass covering strategic development and execution, strategic finance, innovation and growth, change management, organisational renewal and transformation, and more.
