“Congratulations to Parallels Malta and all the companies that have been selected to represent their country as National Champions. They play an important part in creating a stronger business community.” ~ Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards


As National Champion, Parallels Malta now advances to the next round of the competition, which requires National Champions to make a presentation video, telling their unique story and explaining their business success. The judges will view all the National Champions’ videos and award the best from this group the coveted ‘Ruban d’Honneur’ status. Ruban d’Honneur recipients will then go on to be part of the grand final in 2016.

Separately, the National Champion videos will be made public on the European Business Awards website as part of a two-stage public vote, which will decide the ‘National Public Champions’ for each country.  Last year, over 170,000 votes were cast as companies from across Europe were publicly supported by their clients, staff, and peers, as well as the general public.

Supported since its inception by lead sponsor and promoter RSM (the seventh largest audit, tax, and advisory network worldwide, with a major presence across Europe), the European Business Awards were introduced to support the development of a stronger and more successful business community throughout Europe.

In the 2014/15 competition, all EU member markets were represented as well as Turkey, Norway, Switzerland, Serbia, Croatia, and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Their combined revenue exceeded €1.5 trillion, and together they generated profits of over €60 billion and employed over 2.5 million people.
