Twice the election was cancelled due to corona, but this year the Limburg Export Award will be contested again. Registration for the fifteenth edition of this prestigious award was opened today for Limburg entrepreneurs who do business across borders. The winner will receive, among other things, a cash prize of € 10,000. The award will be presented on October 12 during a meeting at Vegetable Seeds BASF/Nunhems Zaden, the last winner in 2019.
The Limburg Export Award is an initiative of the Export Society Limburg and has become a permanent fixture with a concluding networking event. Participation in the competition is open to exporting companies from Dutch Limburg. Both independent and subsidiary companies may compete, provided they are registered with the Chamber of Commerce in Limburg. Size is not a decisive factor; what the jury does regard as important are a clear and successful export strategy, financially sound management and innovation;
An expert professional jury selects ten candidates from the submissions for initial review. In the end, three finalists remain. The final winner receives a cash prize of € 10,000 and a sculpture by Roermond artist Dick van Wijk. The numbers two and three will receive a voucher worth € 500 to participate in a foreign trade trip of their choice from RVO-NL. A film team from L1 TV will visit the three finalists for a professional report. The filmed portraits will be broadcasted in the run-up to and at the award ceremony on Wednesday 12 October at Vegetable Seeds BASF/Nunhems Zaden in Nunhem.
