Deadline for 2015-16 European Business Awards sponsored by RSM approaches
Europe's best businesses are called to enter the 2015-16 European Business Awards sponsored by RSM, as the deadline approaches, to see their achievements recognised across the world.
Entries for Europe's largest business competition will close on 15 July 2015. (see http://www.businessawardseurope.com for details).
Last year's European Business Awards engaged with over 24,000 organisations in 33 countries and final entrants had a combined revenue of over €1.2 trillion and profits of over €50 billion. The Awards also generated significant outside attention. To choose the 'European Public Champion', the public cast over 174,000 votes, and each stage of the Awards attracted extensive global media coverage.
Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said: "We want to show the world the strength of businesses in Europe. So if you are proud of what you are doing, then enter. Everyone who enters benefits from the benchmarking the competition provides, and success brings a lot of visibility and exposure along with a highly regarded and valuable endorsement."
Jean Stephens, CEO of RSM, a leading global audit, tax and advisory network, said: "Since 2007, the European Business Awards has recognised hundreds of businesses, from multinational corporations headquartered in Europe to start-up entrepreneurial businesses that are breaking new and innovative grounds in their industries. Our member firms across Europe and I have had the pleasure to interact with many of the leaders of these successful and thriving businesses and we are looking forward to another successful programme."
The stages of the competition include written submissions, video entry judging and face-to-face interviews with an esteemed panel of European business leaders, academics and entrepreneurs.
Supported since their inception by lead sponsor and promoter RSM, the European Business Awards is now in its 9th year and its primary purpose is to support the development of a stronger and more successful business community throughout Europe. Additional partners and sponsors include UKTI, ELITE and PR Newswire.

About the European Business Awards:
The European Business Awards' primary purpose is to support the development of a stronger and more successful business community throughout Europe.
For all of the citizens of Europe, our prosperity, social and healthcare systems are reliant on businesses creating an even stronger, more innovative, successful, international and ethical business community - one that forms the beating heart of an increasingly globalised economy.
The European Business Awards programme serves the European business community in three ways:
- It celebrates and endorses individuals' and organisations' success
- It provides and promotes examples of excellence for the business community to aspire to
