European Enterprise Awards (2023)

We are excited to announce that the European Enterprise Awards will be returning to EU Business News once again in 2023! Throughout its six-year run, the European Enterprise Awards has become a flagship programme for our platform and is a trusted guide to the top performers and leading businesses operating across the European market. The past few years have been extremely turbulent for Europe, with the looming uncertainty of Brexit swiftly followed by the global COVID-19 pandemic, and now the ongoing war in Ukraine. All of these events took a heavy toll on EU industry, which has had to contend with volatile energy prices, supply chain shortages, and rising inflation rates as a result. Business activity has also been shrinking alongside the slowing of consumer demand, as people deal with the effect of a cost-of-living crisis that is leaving them with less disposable income. All of this has meant that European businesses have been forced to come up with inventive means to ensure their survival, under even the most challenging circumstances. The resilience of EU industry has been bolstered by the strong foothold that Europe has in the global economy, as well as its position as a top player in international trade. In fact, the EU is recognised as the largest exporter of manufactured goods in the world, while also ranking as the number one trading partner for over eighty countries. The trade policy of transparency and openness that is promoted across the European market has allowed great opportunities for economic expansion. By developing trade and investment partnerships with the rest of the world, Europe has been successful in creating jobs and sustaining growth in key industry segments. Through the European Enterprise Awards 2023, EU Business News will look into a variety of sectors to discover the latest innovations and industry trends that are shaping the business landscape in Europe today. We don’t determine our recipients based on company size or number of votes, so whether you are a sole trader, SME, or run a larger corporation, you have an equal chance at recognition in the European Enterprise Awards! Instead, our dedicated in-house research team focus on selecting winners through merit-based factors such as client testimonials, product launches, quality of service, as well as any other relevant contributions to the larger community or industry field. Once recipients for the European Enterprise Awards 2023 have been finalised, EU Business News will present all winners with a variety of advertising options to choose from in order to promote their award to the fullest. These range from a free-of-charge marketing toolkit featuring an online directory listing, to commercial packages that include extended editorial coverage in the dedicated winners’ supplement. Our bespoke packages also offer both physical and digital items such as personalised badge logos and trophies to truly maximise the promotional benefits of the award. If the European Enterprise Awards 2023 sound like a programme you would like to be involved in, you can make a nomination by clicking the ‘Vote Now’ button and completing the submission form provided. We wish the best of luck to all of this year’s candidates!

These awards celebrate the exemplary corporate leadership, strategic foresight, and unparalleled contributions of these exceptional individuals. The European region has encountered an array of financial challenges of varying degrees, which have had a significant impact on business policies and developments. Nevertheless, the current landscape is marked by a growing sense of optimism, as these challenges are gradually being surmounted.

The trend of appointing individuals with non-traditional backgrounds as CEOs is on the rise, contributing to a more diverse business leadership landscape. To succeed as a CEO in today’s world, possessing the skills to conquer obstacles, navigate difficulties, and plan for the future is crucial.

With Italy and the UK leading the region in recognising the importance of AI, other European countries are also realising its significance. As a result, CEOs in Europe must find ways to incorporate technological advancements into their business strategies. AI is a crucial building block for the future and will shape policies at the business and national levels. Therefore, a successful CEO must confidently prioritise innovation and strategic planning to stay ahead of the game. With today’s business landscape defined by innovation, resilience, and transformative leadership, the European CEO of the Year Awards emerges as a beacon, illuminating the extraordinary individuals who navigate the complex landscapes of business with unparalleled skill and vision.

Scandinavian Business Awards (2024)

EU Business News is excited to announce that the Scandinavian Business Awards are returning for a fifth consecutive year in 2024! This programme has gone from strength to strength since its inception in 2019, evolving into one of the most popular award campaigns in our growing portfolio. Thanks to their world-leading welfare system, open business market, and highly educated and skilled workforce, Scandinavia is now considered to be one of the best places globally to do business. While Denmark, Norway, and Sweden do share many similarities in business and culture, they also form a very diverse region with impressive economic strength and many top performing industry sectors. Sweden is a major exporter of forest products, and it’s capital Stockholm is home to a thriving startup environment. Denmark is a leading producer of telecommunications technology, while Norway enjoys rich natural resources and ongoing investments into its infrastructure and transport sectors. The whole of Scandinavia also has a keen interest in improving their standing in the global Healthcare industry. Denmark, Norway, and Sweden have some of the best health systems in the world, which is driving advancements in MedTech, Life Sciences, and Digital Health markets. Scandinavian countries have a combined total of twenty million consumers whose spending power is much higher on average than across the rest of Europe. In addition to this disposable income, Scandinavian consumers are also renowned for their rapid adoption of new products and technologies in comparison to other demographics. This has been a key factor in influencing Scandinavia’s reputation as a central hub for innovation and digital transformation. In a recent study of 137 new products, the time-to-take-off period was fifty percent shorter in Scandinavian countries, with Denmark being reported as the fastest adopter overall. This shows how lucrative expanding into the Danish, Norwegian, and Swedish markets can be for businesses. Here at EU Business News, we want to highlight this appetite for entrepreneurship that has been sweeping Denmark, Norway, and Sweden, and recognise the industry gamechangers who are driving innovation and growth across the Scandinavian markets. The team at EU Business News will work diligently over the next few months to make the Scandinavian Business Awards 2024 the preeminent guide to the best businesses Scandinavia has to offer. Our experienced in-house research and judging team base their winners’ selection on unbiased criteria such as company performance, client reviews/recommendations, product launches, and social media presence. This approach ensures that every recipient is chosen based on merit and is fully deserving of the award. Taking part in the Scandinavian Business Awards 2024 has many benefits, as receiving an award not only boosts staff morale, but can also assist in attracting new customers and sets businesses apart from their competitors. All of our winners are entitled to a free-of-charge marketing toolkit, as we continue our commitment to not being pay-to-play. For those winners looking to take advantage of the promotional benefits of appearing in the Scandinavian Business Awards, we also offer additional commercial package options to maximise recipients’ exposure across the EU Business News platform and beyond. If the Scandinavian Business Awards 2024 are something you would like to be involved in, please complete your nomination by clicking ‘Vote Now’ and following the instructions provided.
