From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The International Trade Awards, held for the first time in 2007[1], are the UKs premier awards devoted exclusively to recognising excellence in import, export and international trade achievement.

The Awards are a series of twelve regional International Trade Awards. Winners from each region are announced at presentation ceremonies held from February through to December with the winners automatically progressing as national finalists.



The objectives of the awards are to:

1. Identify and reward the UK's most successful and innovative exporters

2. Promote the UK's top exporters as corporate role models in order to stimulate greater involvement in international trade amongst UK businesses

3. Promote the leading exporters of local and regional areas to encourage international trade by all companies irrespective of size and location

4. Further develop community awareness of the importance of exporting to the UK's economic future[2]


The International Trade Awards are sponsored by HSBC.
