LONDON, Nov. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- On 3 and 4 December, successful businesses from 33 European countries will be competing in Warsaw, Poland at the grand final of the European Business Awards; Europe's largest business competition.
The 363 finalists are representing their country having been chosen as 'National Winners' in their category after an initial review of over 150,000 European companies.
At the event, sponsored by RSM International, the finalists will be evaluated live on their success stories by independent judges from across Europe. The 19 category winners and the winner of a Public Vote will then be announced at a gala ceremony attended by leading academics, politicians and ambassadors.
Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said: "It is more important than ever that Europe's business communities play a positive and binding role in society. In these challenging times, it is encouraging to look at our list of finalists and see so many dynamic businesses of all sizes and sectors adapting, innovating, investing, and achieving phenomenal success."
Jean Stephens, CEO of RSM International, a leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services to the middle-market, said:
"The European Business Awards are a real demonstration of business excellence across Europe and beyond. Within the middle-market it is evident, not least from looking at our own client base, that there is a thriving European business community which is hungry for further growth and success, despite continuing uncertain times. Each of the finalists deserves to be here and I wish them all the very best of luck in the final."
Alongside the public judging, the two-day event will include a range of clinics, seminars and workshops, tackling key business challenges, run and moderated by subject experts.
Adrian Tripp said: "The seminars and workshops at the conference will stimulate the debate about what role business should play in our society. With our expert panels we will work through the challenges we face and find key solutions so that business communities can better support both our society and our planet and prosper."
Now in their 12(th) year, the European Business Awards has a primary purpose to support the development of a stronger and more successful business community throughout Europe. As well as event partner RSM International, other sponsors include Inflexion and Germany Trade & Invest.
