DUBROVNIK, Croatia, April 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
On 4 May in Dubrovnik, Croatia, 132 finalists from 34 countries will be hoping to be named a winner at the Grand Final of Europe's largest and most prestigious business competition, the European Business Awards, sponsored by RSM.
The businesses reached the final following a year-long journey, which began when the competition engaged with over 33,000 companies at entry stage last year.
On the night, 11 category winners will be named alongside a 'European Public Champion'; the winner of a public vote that generates around 250,000 votes from across the globe.
The event includes a Growth Conference during the day where businesses leaders will debate and identify ways to further grow their companies, followed by the Gala Dinner when the winners will be announced.
Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said: "This grand final presents a powerful opportunity for businesses to meet peers, do business and celebrate phenomenal success. I wish all our finalists the best of luck."

Through our engagement with these awards it is evident that there is a thriving European business community who are hungry for further growth and success despite the uncertain times ahead. I wish them all the best of luck in the final."
Alongside the successful finalists in attendance there will also be VIPs including leading academics, politicians, ambassadors, and business leaders from the most successful organisations in Europe, many of whom acted as judges for the Awards.
