EU Business News is excited to announce the much-awaited return of the Benelux Enterprise Awards 2023 for its sixth consecutive instalment. Organised by EU Business News, this programme aims to identify and reward those enterprises that have demonstrated excellence in their respective fields.
This programme is targeted towards businesses of all sizes operating in the Benelux region, including both established and up-and-coming enterprises. It is designed to be inclusive and accessible to all businesses, regardless of their size or sector!
The economic outlook for the Benelux countries in the coming years presents a mixed picture. Belgium is projected to experience a temporary slowdown in 2023 with a growth rate of 0.6%. Meanwhile, the Dutch economy is expected to grow by a modest 0.8% in 2023. Inflation is also expected to ease in the Netherlands, with a projected rate of 4.9%. In Luxembourg, the National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies (STATEC) forecasts a more positive outlook, with the economy projected to grow by 1.5% in 2023. Overall, while the Benelux countries have their own unique economic trends, they are all expected to continue to experience growth in the coming years. What better way to celebrate these achievements in challenging economic conditions, than to participate in the Benelux Enterprise Awards 2023!
This awards programme is being run to showcase the best and brightest businesses in the region, and to recognise the hard work and dedication of the individuals and teams who drive these enterprises forward. EU Business News recognises the vital role that businesses play in driving economic growth and prosperity throughout the region, and we believe that it’s important to celebrate and support these enterprises.
The first stage of our rigorous awards process involves an initial nomination period, during which businesses can be put forward for consideration. We have our own dedicated in-house research team that source, analyse and reward businesses that we think deserve to be recognised for their achievements.
This awards programme is completely free to enter and if your enterprise is lucky enough to be successful, you will be presented to our circulation of 58,000 and promoted on our official website for a minimum of 12 months.
In addition, our awardees are welcome to choose from our range of competitively priced promotional opportunities to increase exposure of the good news!
Taking part in the Benelux Enterprise Awards 2023 provides an opportunity to showcase your achievements and gain recognition for your hard work. Being awarded can help to build credibility and trust with customers and can also provide a competitive advantage over other businesses in your sector.
Finally, winning an award can be a great morale boost for employees. Being recognised for their hard work and dedication can increase job satisfaction and motivation and can help to build a strong sense of teamwork and pride from within.
If you would like to nominate yourselves, or indeed another enterprise you feel is worthy, then please complete the voting form by clicking on the ‘Vote Now’ button above. Alternatively, if you would like further information about how the Benelux Enterprise Awards can benefit you, please feel free to contact the awards team at [email protected].
The EU Business News team work hard in identifying great businesses, driving many of the nominations themselves. We also encourage external nominations from the subscribers of the magazine, online visitors, social media followers, clients and wider circulation. Nominating parties are invited to put forward either their own business or third-party companies whom they hold in high regard.
All nominees are formally requested to accept their nomination. Should any firm or individual decline at this point, they are simply taken out of the running. Those who formally accept are given the opportunity to submit additional supporting information to cement their nomination. Although there is no obligation to complete and supply material, we have found that many nominees value this stage, in the process, as much as our research team do.
Our dedicated research team will assess all information presented to them. The team gather information independently from a variety of publicly accessible sources, which are assessed alongside any material supplied by a nominating party or the nominee themselves. The research team casts their final judgment, based on various criteria such as: business performance, longevity, business growth (either sustained or rapid), any significant innovations or feedback from stakeholders.
Once winners are selected, they are personally notified before any public announcement is made, allowing time for any communications throughout the wider business and the coordination of marketing strategies. Unfortunately, not everyone can be a winner; however, all who take part are encouraged to come back next year. Once the press embargo is lifted, details of our award winners will be made public via the website, award winners’ magazine and subscriber newsletter.
We are prepared to offer a range of promotional packages and items to winners of a EU Business News award, which vary from inclusion in the free-of-charge winners’ directory, to trophies, content in our magazine and on our website.
We encourage all winners to publicly announce their win independently in order to gain maximum exposure for their win. Announcements via company websites, social media, via publicly released press releases, and through local and national press are all great ways of maximising the exposure which can be gained from such a great achievement. If you have need of further advice, on how to publicise your win, please feel free to get in touch. We are happy to assist our clients with their needs.
The Nomination Team can assist with answering any queries that you have regarding a nomination, or the process involved in taking part in one of our award programmes.
Please get in touch with us via email or over the phone if you have any questions - we are happy to help!
