With an economy resolutely focused on the international market, Wallonia's prosperity and visibility are mainly based on its companies' export performance (70% of turnover is created internationally, i.e. more than double the European average). Every two years, the Wallonia Export Grand Prix rewards Walloon companies that have progressed the most by increasing their export volume or conquering difficult markets. This year, due to the Covid-19 crisis, the ceremony will be 100% virtual and hold some pleasant surprises...
Innovative and a showcase for Walloon technological know-how, the Walloon Export Grand Prix ceremony, which will be held on 17 December from 7 pm, will combine the best of what is currently being done in terms of virtuality (augmented reality, teleportation, etc.) thanks to a collaboration with a Walloon company at the cutting edge of this technology, which has recently been awarded several international prizes.
Because taking sustainable development into account in a management strategy has become a source of opportunities, a necessary transition for adapting to the expectations of customers and partners worldwide, this year, for the first time, an award dedicated to sustainable development will be presented to a Walloon company that has successfully deployed its business internationally thanks to the sustainable transition of its products/services.
Here are the six prizes that will be awarded:
SPRINGBOARD Award for Europe: This award is presented to a company whose average export turnover for the last three financial years has not yet reached 70% but which has stood out particularly due to its European Union performances.
SPRINGBOARD Award for Large-Scale Exports: This award is presented to a company whose average export turnover for the last three financial years has not yet reached 70% but which has stood out in particular due to its "large-scale export" performances, i.e. outside the European Union.
EU Export Award: This award recognises an export company that is particularly worthy due to its performances in the European Union.
Award for Large-Scale Exports: This award recognises an export company that is particularly worthy due to its performances outside the European Union.
Grand Prix for Sustainable Entrepreneurship Internationally: This prize rewards a Walloon company that has successfully deployed its business internationally thanks to the sustainable transition of its products/services or the company's "organisation" (management system).
The Wallonia Export Grand Prix: this award recognises the company that has most substantially improved its performance and position both in the European Union and in terms of large-scale export.
