  • Innovation and Technology Driving Export Success
  • New Categories Bring Great Competition

The Irish Exporters Association, the voice of the Export Industry in Ireland, announces 68 entries across 12 categories shortlisted for the 2024 Export Industry Awards. The IEA’s flagship black tie event of the year will welcome over 500 export industry leaders, professionals, and international dignitaries, where they will be entertained by none other than world renowned mentalist, Keith Barry.

12 category winners and the overall 2024 Exporter of the Year, sponsored by KPMG, will be announced at the 22nd Export Industry Awards Ceremony and Gala Dinner on Friday, 27th September 2024 at the Dublin Royal Convention Centre.

Commenting on today’s announcement, Simon McKeever, Chief Executive of the Irish Exporters Association, stated: “I am delighted to announce that 68 entries have been shortlisted across 12 categories for our 2024 Export Industry Awards. Now in its 22nd year, the Export Industry Awards seek to recognise and celebrate the significant achievements of companies working in international trade, across the Island of Ireland.

Our independent judging panel were very impressed by the ingenuity and commitment shown by the high calibre of entries this year. We have seen businesses really place technology and innovation to the forefront of what they do and showcase how these factors have helped them to reach new heights of success.

This year we warmly welcome entrants from two new categories, the Seafood Exporter of the Year Award, and the All-Island Trade Award. I am delighted that this year’s Awards will highlight the immense success of Ireland’s seafood businesses, and that for the first time, this year the IEA Export Industry Awards will have a truly Island of Ireland dimension.

The Export Industry Awards would not be possible if not for the support and commitment of our Platinum and Category sponsors. A special mention must be reserved for Aidan Cotter, Chair, and to our entire independent panel of judges, for the time and effort they give to the judging process.

To our shortlisted businesses, I wish you the very best of luck. The black-tie Gala Dinner and Ceremony to be held on 27th September is an opportunity to celebrate you and your successes. I look forward to welcoming you then, as well as to our bespoke Alumni Masterclass, the theme of which this year is “Driving Export Success with AI”, hosted by Trinity Executive Education, Trinity Business School, Trinity College Dublin on Monday, 17th June.”
