EU Business News is proud to host the Benelux Business Awards each year. Despite the looming shadow of uncertainty posed by Brexit across Europe, the individuals and group behind the successful businesses and industries of Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg are still a beacon of economic hope and prosperity which all can benefit from.
By taking part in the Benelux Business Awards, our winners have obtained the opportunity to promote their award worthy contributions to the economic growth of their respective local, regional, national and international markets, whilst providing others with the inspiration to carry on in troubling times by reminding them that a gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials.

The EU Business News team work hard in identifying great businesses, driving many of the nominations themselves. We also encourage external nominations from the subscribers of the magazine, online visitors, social media followers, clients and wider circulation. Nominating parties are invited to put forward either their own business or third-party companies whom they hold in high regard.
All nominees are formally requested to accept their nomination. Should any firm or individual decline at this point, they are simply taken out of the running. Those who formally accept are given the opportunity to submit additional supporting information to cement their nomination. Although there is no obligation to complete and supply material, we have found that many nominees value this stage, in the process, as much as our research team do.
Our dedicated research team will assess all information presented to them. The team gather information independently from a variety of publicly accessible sources, which are assessed alongside any material supplied by a nominating party or the nominee themselves. The research team casts their final judgment, based on various criteria such as: business performance, longevity, business growth (either sustained or rapid), any significant innovations or feedback from stakeholders.
Once winners are selected, they are personally notified before any public announcement is made, allowing time for any communications throughout the wider business and the coordination of marketing strategies. Unfortunately, not everyone can be a winner; however, all who take part are encouraged to come back next year. Once the press embargo is lifted, details of our award winners will be made public via the website, award winners’ magazine and subscriber newsletter.
We are prepared to offer a range of promotional packages and items to winners of a EU Business News award, which vary from inclusion in the free-of-charge winners’ directory, to trophies, content in our magazine and on our website.
We encourage all winners to publicly announce their win independently in order to gain maximum exposure for their win. Announcements via company websites, social media, via publicly released press releases, and through local and national press are all great ways of maximising the exposure which can be gained from such a great achievement. If you have need of further advice, on how to publicise your win, please feel free to get in touch. We are happy to assist our clients with their needs.
Here you will find detail of our winners. All featured winners are included in our digital awards magazine which is published here on our website and distributed to the circulation of EU Business News comprising of a little over 100,000 business leaders & industry professionals.
