Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards says, “Judging of this year’s awards has been particularly tough, with so many companies showing real success and tenacity in the face of the on-going economic difficulties in Europe. The introduction of the video entries stage has helped our judges to see behind the paper application form and understand more of the personality of the business. This is something we will use again in our 2013/14 awards.” Tripp adds, “The main aim of these awards is to help create a stronger European business community and we are proud to see this beginning to take shape with entrants past and present taking advantage of the networking opportunities offered to them and forging beneficial business relationships.” For more information, or to register your interest in the 2013/14 awards, please visit: www.businessawardseurope.com.
