The 2019 Business SA Export Awards celebrate exporting excellence in South Australia by recognising the most dynamic and innovative businesses in our state. Through showcasing South Australia's most successful exporters, these awards inspire greater involvement in exporting and recognise the outstanding businesses which call South Australia home.

The 2019 Business SA Export Awards operate as a two-tiered process - with exporters first achieving state distinction through the Business SA Export Awards program, before progressing as national finalists to the Australian Export Awards. As a national finalist, South Australian Award winners will be benchmarked against their peers across the country, with winners receiving national recognition for their international success.

Winners of the Business SA 2019 Export Awards will be formally announced on Friday 18th October at a gala dinner to be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre.

Many category winners automatically progress as finalists in the 57th Australian Export Awards to compete for an Australian industry award, including the coveted Australian Exporter of the Year. (details in category descriptions)

We are pleased to announce that we will be running a brand-new award; the SA wine, beer and spirit award. This award recognises excellence in wine, beer and spirits exportation across the state.  Because the award is unique to South Australia, the successful category winner will not progress through to the national awards but will be recognised as a South Australian achievement in its own right.    The winner of the state-based wine, beer and spirits category will be chosen from the relevant applications in the Agribusiness, food and beverages category.

The 2019 Business SA Export Awards will also include two Design for Export Awards, recognising that successful exporters begin their journey with just one product, and that product is created through impeccable design.

The Business SA Design for Export Awards is a joint initiative of Business SA and Good Design Australia. 

If you are exporting your products or services and use design as a key business development strategy, tell us your story.

The two Design Awards added to the 2019 Business SA Export Awards are:

• Best Product Design 

• Best Design Strategy
