Celebrating International Business Excellence

Organised by TradeMalta 

Supported by:

Welcome to the third edition of the Malta International Business Awards!

Since starting its operations in 2015, with the main purpose of supporting Malta-based businesses to export and internationalise, the team at TradeMalta has forged close collaborations with numerous local enterprises.  Amongst them, are well-established organisations with vast experience in export and internationalisation, as well as newcomers with global aspirations. Over the years we’ve supported these businesses in several ways - by providing financial assistance through our funding schemes, opening new opportunities through trade missions, offering bespoke training programmes, and through many other support services - all aimed at ensuring that these businesses thrive on the international stage.  

Winning any of the four award categories at this year’s event will not only bring about much-deserved recognition, as well as rewards, but will also serve as a powerful marketing tool enhancing the winners’ brand visibility and credibility in the industry. Furthermore, winning any of the categories will act as a catalyst for team motivation and enhance employee morale.

We therefore encourage companies to come forward and apply for the third edition of the Malta International Business Awards. We look forward to learning from the applicants’ experiences and insights, and to celebrate their triumphs together. This is an opportunity to celebrate the spirit of entrepreneurship that drives businesses to grow their business internationally.

So, join us on this exciting journey of recognising and celebrating excellence in international business.

We look forward to celebrating your success!

STRATEGIC PARTNER

HSBC Bank Malta long supported TradeMalta’s efforts and activities aimed at helping Maltese businesses to expand into international markets. The two entities are complementary given HSBC’s ability to offer a wide range of solutions to facilitate internationalisation.  We have collaborated on a number of initiatives and training programmes as well as by setting up an HSBC room, serving as a meeting space at the TradeMalta offices in Sliema. In addition, we sponsored two editions of the Malta International Business Awards – we are thrilled that these awards are back, showcasing the Maltese businesses that have succeeded internationally and look forward to the event.
