About the Awards

Initially launched in 1989, The International Trade Council’s Go Global Awards celebrate organizations that drive the global economy through innovations, technologies, and strategies.

The Go Global Awards follow a rigorous three-tiered review/selection process. Candidates begin the application process with a pre-screening / ranking phase. The top 20% of nominations across all categories are cross-reviewed to ensure consistency. Finalists are then selected and move forward to the live judging event, where they present before independent Go Global Awards Committee members. The Awards Committee then cross-reviews the finalist presentations, and the final decisions are announced at the Go Global Awards Day.

The Awards bring together hundreds of senior executives from some of the world’s most innovative manufacturers, exporters, technology firms, international service providers, venture capital firms, and financial institutions.

While the Go Global Awards offer the opportunity to be recognized and honored by their peers, it also goes beyond winning trophies and citations. The program aims to build a community of senior executives from across the globe to support one another, share ideas, create partnerships, and build on their existing knowledge and connections.
