The European Business Awards are now in their 8th year and have received submissions from an all time high of 24,000 businesses from 33 European member states, all under review by a professional jury consisting of business leaders, academics, media and political representatives. From this group 709 businesses have been selected to enter the second phase of the competition, in which companies can present themselves to the jury and the public by means of a video presentation.
ACS audiovisual solutions advises and facilitates both national and international customers with the realisation of audiovisual presentations for the congress, exhibition, meeting and event market. For smart presentation IT solutions; they introduced the brand Eventresult.
“The nomination in this European contest is a huge recognition of the innovative character of our company” said Jessica Ylstra, Managing Director of ACS audiovisual solutions. “An independent jury selected a number of Dutch companies with the best business cases in the area of innovation from over 24,000 European businesses, and we are one of them ! For us this proves we made the right decision when we started a couple of years ago with our new brand Eventresult, providing smart presentation solutions for the hospitality and congress market. Doing this enables us to put a lot of time and attention in the development of new solutions, by separating them from the daily hectic activities that characterize our branch”.
Adrian Trip, Chief Executive of the European Business Awards said: “Congratulations to ACS audiovisual solutions; it is a great achievement to be named National Champion and we wish them luck in the next stage. The European Business Awards are going from strength to strength, inspiring businesses to greater success and helping to improve the competitive edge of companies across Europe”.
Jean Stephens, CEO of RSM International, said: “Every year this prestigious competition gets tougher and more competitive as more companies, varying in size and across all sectors, choose to compete. With the increased number of entries and countries, this year is to become the toughest Awards yet. It will be exciting to watch as we move through the next round”.
A panel of judges made up of European business leaders, academics and entrepreneurs will review the National Champions’ videos, and award the best of this group the coveted ‘Ruban d’Honneur’ status. Ruban de’Honneur recipients will then go on to the grand finale in 2015. All of the National Champions will also participate in a public vote to decide ‘Public Champions’ for each country. Last year over 93,000 votes were cast, and over 400,000 people visited the EBA website during the competition.
The European Business Awards are sponsored by RSM International, the seventh largest audit, tax and advisory network worldwide. The awards were set up to recognise and reward excellence, best practice and innovation across the European Business community.
