queens awards for enterprise


The Institute is once again proud to be partnering with The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise this year - culminating in the celebratory awards gala dinner in November which we are hosting at the Royal Horseguards Hotel in London.

The Queen’s Awards, first established in 1966, have long been the most prestigious business awards given out in the UK. Winning an Award often leads to an increase of growth, boosted international recognition, and boosted staff morale.

Winners are also invited to attend a glamorous reception at Buckingham Palace, as well as the always enjoyable and spectacular gala dinner put on by the Institute in London.

The Awards are offered for outstanding achievements by UK businesses in 4 fields:

·      Innovation

·      International Trade

·      Sustainable Development

·      Promoting Opportunity (through social mobility)

We once again encourage our members, and the export community in general, to apply for an Award as we have previously seen our members go from strength to strength after winning one. 73% of winners in the International Trade category have attributed increases in sales directly to the recognition gained by winning.

The Awards are open to businesses of all sizes from all sectors and the application process is completely free. Applications for the 2018 Awards close at midday on Friday 1st September 2017.

All entry forms, eligibility criteria and information on how to apply is available at
