The search for outstanding foreign firms in Hong Kong is on at the HKB International Business Awards 2022

The deadline for nominations is on 17 June 2022. 

Now in its eighth year, the Hong Kong Business International Business Awards is back to recognise first-rate international businesses in Hong Kong. 

The awards program is open to outstanding foreign firms who stand out and were able to navigate their way despite challenges whilst reaching their main goal in providing award-winning products and services to their clients.

International firms with offices in Hong Kong but headquartered overseas are eligible for nomination. Entries can be any innovative product, service, strategy, or project that has made tangible contributions to the company or a client and was launched within the last two years. Entries launched before this period are qualified as long as recent improvements or innovations have been made.

The most prestigious celebration of Hong Kong's international business champions is presented by Hong Kong Business, with a roster of companies like Animoca Brands (Media and Entertainment), Baxter Healthcare Ltd. (Healthcare Technology), Royale International (Logistics) and Convatec Hong Kong Limited (Health Products and Services) winning awards in their respective categories at last year’s ceremony. 

“It is indeed a great honour for the entire team at ConvaTec and we are very excited to accept this award as well as be recognised for our efforts to serve our patients with our innovative wound dress solutions,” said ConvaTec Hong Kong General Manager, Leena Chandrashekhar. ConvaTec took home an award in the Health Products and Services category for their pioneering wound dressing product and technology, AQUACEL Ag+ Extra. 

The entries will be reviewed based on inspiration behind the initiative, uniqueness & innovation, effectiveness, impact on the company and industry, as well as dynamism to changes and progressive opportunities by a prestigious panel of judges.

Submissions are free and open until 17 June 2022. Winners will be announced at the awarding ceremony in August 2022 in Hong Kong. For more information, please contact Danica Avila at danica@charltonmediamail.com or call +65 3158 1386. To know more about the awards programme, click here.
