Successful businesses from 32 countries in Europe are calling for support as they compete for the title of ‘European Public Winner’ in this year’s European Business Awards sponsored by RSM.
The public can vote for their favourite company by going to the Awards web site www.businessawardseurope.com where each company has posted a video profiling their business success. The ‘European Public Winner’ will be the company that receives the most votes before 4 May, and the winner will be announced at the Gala Final in Warsaw, Poland on 23 May.
Last year almost 250,000 people voted as thriving European companies were supported globally by their clients, staff and peers, as well as the general public.

The videos are a display of European business excellence and provide fascinating insight into some of Europe’s most innovative and inspiring businesses. Good luck to everyone.”

These National Winners will also go on to the Gala Final in May, where the final category winners, as well as the European Public Winner, will be announced.
