Business SA Export Awards celebrate exporting excellence in South Australia by recognising the most dynamic and innovative businesses in the State. Through showcasing South Australia’s most successful exporters, these awards inspire greater involvement in exporting and recognise these outstanding businesses that call South Australia home.

The Awards operate as a two-tier 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 2017 Export Awards will be formally announced on Thursday 26 October at a gala dinner to be held at Adelaide Convention Centre.

All winners automatically progress as finalists in the 55th Australian Export Awards to compete for an Australian industry award, including the coveted Australian Exporter of the Year.
