The International Business Awards were launched in 2003 to recognize the achievements of organizations worldwide. Winners are judged by a panel of 200 leading global executives from a pool of more than 3,200 entrants.

“Entries to the IBAs grew substantially this year,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “Despite slow economic conditions in much of the world, the quality of nominations was outstanding, demonstrating that there are many companies that are innovating and growing regardless. We’re looking forward to celebrating this year’s Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie winners at our gala event in Seoul on 15 October.”

Winners of the The International Business Awards will be honored in Seoul, South Korea at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel on October 15, 2012. The lists of honorees in all categories are available at http://www.stevieawards.com/iba/.
