The Irish Exporters Association has shortlisted 59 businesses  for the 17th Export Industry Awards. Eleven category winners and one overall ‘Exporter of the Year’ will be announced at the black-tie awards ceremony on Friday, November 17, at the Clayton Hotel in Dublin 4.

The Exporter of the Year will receive a pair of return Business Class flights from Dublin to anywhere on the Etihad Airways network. More than 500 industry professionals will be in attendance and they will be entertained by comedian Mario Rosenstock.

Simon McKeever (pictured), chief executive of the Irish Exporters Association, said that it was good to see increasing numbers of companies enter the annual awards. “This year we received more unique applications than in previous years. Our independent judging panel was particularly impressed with the competitiveness of the applications and the international opportunities companies from Ireland are winning,” he added.

“Not only did we receive a large number of new companies entering, we also received a large number of applications from past category winners and past shortlisted companies competing to retain title or win back their title.”
