The Stevie Awards
Since 2002, the annual Stevie Awards are organised to celebrate the achievements and the positive contributions of organisations and working professionals worldwide. The initiators organise six Stevie Awards programmes: The International Business Awards, The American Business Awards, the Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards, the German Stevie Awards, the Stevie Awards for Women in Business, and the Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service.
The International Business Awards (IBAs) aim to recognise accomplishments in all aspects of business by individuals and organisations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. Awards are handed out in a wide range of categories, including, among others, Company of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Start-up of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Programme of the Year, and Executive of the Year. Stevie Award winners – ranked either Gold, Silver or Bronze – are determined by ratings from more than 200 executives.
For the 12th year edition of the IBAs, over 3,700 nominations from more than 60 nations and territories were submitted. “The IBAs grow in stature and renown every year, and with that the number and quality of entries increases,” explains Michael Gallagher, President and Founder of the Stevie Awards. “This year’s judges were treated to more than 3,700 stories of success and achievement around the world.” The winners of the 2015 will be celebrated during the gala banquet at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Toronto, Canada on Friday 23 October 2015.
