EXCELLENCE AWARDS™ 2023

Think global, act local.

SEP

LIVE ONLINE EVENT

The International Business Excellence Awards is the world’s premier celebration of your strive for maximum performance and innovation.

We think of Business Excellence as "an integrated collection of proven practices for how a business should operate to become the best it can possibly be – i.e. world class" (M. James, My Business Excellence).

But reaching "world class" operations requires organizations to "Think global, act local" – whether you are a large enterprise where these practices are already established, or a smaller organization aiming to develop and grow.

IBXA is designed to recognize your successes on the path to global best-in-class performance – no matter your company's size.

So, join us for an awe-inspiring collection of world-leading practices in international trade and cutting-edge enterprise. Find out what the future holds at the dizzying heights of the global business agenda and how you measure up.

No matter where you’re from or what business you’re in, business professionals everywhere who are committed to excellence have the same aim - to grow, innovate and become the best they can possibly be for their customers, employees and stakeholders. It’s a truly international movement.

AND THIS IS A TRULY INTERNATIONAL EVENT!
