Acquisition International are delighted to present to you the 8th annual Business Excellence Awards, proudly calling all companies, businesses and enterprises from across the globe. Whether you are from a large conglomerate or small independent business, we look to honour anyone who has excelled in their sector.
In these times of financial and economic upheaval, the business environment can be more uncertain than ever. From global issues of an increasingly erratic climate, to political instability and data security questions, enterprises are facing challenges, new and old. With our programme, we have provided our winners with the opportunity to be recognised for your perseverance and determination in these difficult times.
Taking part in the AI Business Excellence Award programme is the perfect way to show your employees that their efforts are valued by the organisation, whilst also providing the public with evidence of your successes as a business. Notifying stakeholders of your participation in our programme indicates that your business is garnering the attention of third parties, and that word or your expertise, customer service or products offered are creating a buzz within the sector, industry or market.
The AI Business Excellence Awards are a chance for you to reap the rewards your hard work deserves. Whether you have been in business for years or months, this is the chance to be rewarded for your excellence and passion, from a trusted source.
The AI Business Excellence Awards are judged purely on a merit. In order to determine our lucky few, our in-house research team carefully analyse the information that is available both online and in the public domain as well as any materials supplied by nominees. Additionally, nominees are provided the opportunity to prepare a short case file disclosing details of their chosen business sector and practice, as well as any previous accolades awarded. Case files, product samples and media packs are all accepted but are not mandatory to be included in the AI Business Excellence Awards. Our awards are based on merit, not the number of votes received. Our process works to ensure that we reward parties based on their excellence in the industry, the quality of their products and their dedication to service.
With all this in mind if you know of, operate or are a member of and organisation which you feel is worthy of acknowledgement the please complete the voting form by clicking ‘nominate’ at the top of the page.

"Stiltz has enjoyed some great exposure on the back of our recent spotlight article in AI. It’s been a great morale booster and the perfect platform to highlight all the great work the team here at Stilz have done. Not only have we experienced an increase in web traffic, but some positive communications from clients, old and new.
A great team and a really professional outcome, I’d thoroughly recommend them."
