GULF BUSINESS AWARDS 2016
The Gulf Business Awards cover a wide spectrum of economic sectors, from energy to real estate. Each year, the Awards celebrates regional titans of industry, government officials, small and medium-sized enterprises as well as entrepreneurs.
Professionally, GBA attendees are at the top of their game. Not only do they drive forward the corporate agenda, but they also drive the national and international agendas. Our audience consists of those who have contributed in raising the Gulf's profile, both regionally and internationally.
In each sector, a company and business leader of the year will be recognised. One business leader and company from all the winning business leaders and companies will be selected for the prestigious accolade of overall ‘Gulf Business business leader of the year' and 'Gulf Business company of the year’.
In 2016, we are looking to engage the public even more with two 'people's choice' awards: 'Entrepreneur of the year’ and ‘Corporate social responsibility award'. Gulf Business will highlight 10 leading entrepreneurs & 5 Corporate social responsibility campaigns and it will be for our readers to decide who should be awarded. Voting opens from July 1st to August 31st 2016. To vote, click here.
The Gulf Business Awards will feature a special public voted category which focuses on the flourishing entrepreneurial and corporarte social responsibility sector
