Chamber of Commerce urges companies to enter 2011 International Trade Business Awards

The 2011 International Trade Business Awards have now been launched and winners will scoop the prestigious title for Lancashire’s most successful international businesses.

Three categories are available in the Awards competition:-
 
- Newcomer to International Trade
- Outstanding Exporter Achievement
- Outstanding Import Achievement

The Awards are sponsored by the International Trade Club and the East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce, to recognise and promote the quality, diversity, ingenuity and success of local companies engaged in International Trade. “International Trade secures so many jobs in our economy, and our companies compete in increasingly competitive global markets to help their business grow, which in turn helps the UK economy remain strong and directly effects the living standard of everyone in the UK”  These awards recognise the most outstanding international companies and enable them to enjoy the applause of their peers and benefit from the well deserved publicity!” said Ed Murphy, International Trade and Training Director of the East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce. 

Winners will have their awards presented at the International Trade Club Gala Luncheon on the 9th December 2011.

Closing date is 2nd December 2011 and entrants simply need to state their case in no more than 100 words and include Export and Import figures for 2010 and 2011 (including projections to year end for 2011), list countries and approximate values, and advise of any additional supporting information such as new jobs created/safeguarded.

Winners will be invited to go forward to compete in the British Chamber of Commerce National Awards and the chance to win a share of £50,000 cash prize.
