Export Industry Awards
The Export Industry Awards have been recognising the tremendous achievements of companies working in the industry for 19 years and has been growing in strength and recognition each year. It is important that we highlight the exporting companies who have excelled in their sector despite some difficult trading conditions and to highlight exporters who have been fundamental to Ireland’s success. Over 500 export industry professionals attend this black tie event every year. The award categories cover the emerging exporters to established indigenous exporters of manufactured goods, services, software and onward to the multinational companies.
This year two new categories have been added to the list of categories: Financial Services Partner of the Year and Private Irish Business of the Year.
