Malta International Business Awards enters exciting new phase

An impressive number of entries compete for prestigious titles.

Malta International Business Awards enters exciting new phase! The Malta International Business Awards (MIBA) proudly announces the next stage of the competition. Organised by TradeMalta, this third edition of the MIBA awards attracted an impressive number of entries from Malta-based exporters, demonstrating the vibrant and diverse nature of the nation’s international business community.

The awards feature four categories: Best SME Exporter, Best Large Exporter, Best High Potential Exporter and Best Emerging Markets Exporter. Applicants come from a wide array of industries including manufacturing, research and development, training, software, and AI technology, maritime, 3D printing, supply chain management, architecture, and web design.  This broad participation highlights the robust capabilities of Malta’s exporters.

The competition now moves into the first phase of the adjudication.  In this phase, TradeMalta executives and auditors from Grant Thornton will rigorously evaluate all entries to ensure compliance with applications guidelines, score them according to the criteria outlined in the Entrant Guide, and shortlist finalists in each category.

In the second phase, the shortlisted finalists will be invited to deliver a presentation to a judging panel.  This panel will determine the winners for each category and the overall winner, who will be celebrated at a prestigious gala dinner.

‘The Malta International Business Awards’ are more than just a platform for formal recognition. They offer an opportunity for businesses to showcase their achievements, share their best practices and to inspire other entrepreneurs to embark on the internationalisation journey’ said Anton Buttigieg CEO TradeMalta.

The winners of each category along with the overall winner will be announced during a gala dinner, at the Radisson Golden Sands Hotel on Friday 29 November 2024. This event promises to be an evening of celebration, recognition, and networking among Malta’s top business leaders and innovators.

The Awards are being organised by TradeMalta and HSBC Bank Malta p.l.c., as TradeMalta’s strategic partner, with Emirates and Grant Thornton as supporting partners. The Times of Malta is the media partner. Additionally, the awards are endorsed by the Ministry for Foreign and European Affairs and Trade, as well as the Malta Chamber of Commerce, showcasing a united front in championing Malta’s international business competence.
