Malta Independent - - BUSINESS & FINANCE - Ge­orge Carol

Malta’s Best in Biz Awards, the only busi­ness awards pro­gramme judged by mem­bers of the press and in­dus­try ex­pert an­a­lysts will be held at Castello dei Ba­roni, Wardija on Fri­day 25th Novem­ber.

Sym­fo­ma­nia Awards are one of the most pow­er­ful and cost­ef­fec­tive mar­ket­ing tools and win­ning a pres­ti­gious Malta’s Best in Busi­ness Awards will help your or­gan­i­sa­tion to stand out from the crowd, send a pos­i­tive mes­sage to your ex­ist­ing cus­tomers and at­tract new busi­ness. Malta’s Best in Busi­ness Awards are Malta’s high­est pro­file awards and win­ning this ac­co­lade will say a lot about the qual­ity of your or­gan­i­sa­tion and the strength of your man­age­ment team. Due to its high pro­file, the Awards at­tract a wide range of en­tries from all sec­tors, from large in­ter­na­tional PLCs and pub­lic sec­tor or­gan­i­sa­tions to dy­namic and in­no­va­tive SMEs or start-ups. But the win­ners all have one thing in com­mon – they are truly ex­cel­lent at what they do and have proved this by win­ning Malta’s Best in Busi­ness Awards.

“We want to help busi­ness raise the pro­file of their or­gan­i­sa­tion and en­hance its rep­u­ta­tion by pro­mot­ing the great work you are do­ing while at the same time pro­vid­ing them with a plat­form to cel­e­brate your suc­cess,” said Martin Vella, or­gan­iser and man­ag­ing direc­tor of MBR Pub­li­ca­tions Limited.

Busi­ness Awards aim to high­light and re­ward ex­cel­lence in the pri­vate and pub­lic sec­tors to help busi­nesses be­come even more suc­cess­ful. The fol­low­ing re­search find­ings high­light some of the ben­e­fits award win­ners en­joy:

• Large award win­ning com­pa­nies ex­pe­ri­enced a 48 per cent in­crease in oper­at­ing in­come and a 37 per cent growth in sales when com­pared to non-award win­ners. Smaller award win­ning com­pa­nies were also shown to have ex­pe­ri­enced a 63 per cent in­crease in oper­at­ing in­come, and a 39 per cent growth in sales when com­pared to non-win­ners.

• A study com­pared the fi­nan­cial per­for­mance of 120 award­win­ning com­pa­nies across Europe that met spe­cific cri­te­ria against com­par­i­son com­pa­nies of a sim­i­lar size and oper­at­ing in the same in­dus­tries. The fi­nan­cial per­for­mance was tracked over 11 years. The study found that the award win­ning com­pa­nies showed im­prove­ments in fi­nan­cial per­for­mance after just a year of award.

• Fact: All award win­ning com­pa­nies out­per­formed the com­par­i­son com­pa­nies by an av­er­age of 17 per cent for sales and 36 per cent for share value. Dur­ing the past year that per­for­mance was tracked, the award win­ning com­pa­nies ex­pe­ri­enced even greater in­creases when com­pared to sim­i­lar com­pa­nies, with sales growing by an av­er­age of 77 per cent more and oper­at­ing in­come by 18 per cent more.

Mr Vella ex­plained, “Chances are you will want to tell your tar­get au­di­ences about your suc­cess, so we have de­vel­oped a range of pub­lic re­la­tions ben­e­fits for win­ners. As a win­ner com­pany/ies will re­ceive a press re­lease with judges‘/ or­gan­iser’s com­ments on why you have won.

Tes­ti­mo­ni­als

“Win­ning a Best Busi­ness Award has pro­vided us with a plat­form to raise our pro­file via the me­dia. Since win­ning we have se­cured press cov­er­age in key na­tional and re­gional pub­li­ca­tions re­gard­ing the great work we are do­ing and we have at­tracted stu­dents to the col­lege that may not have oth­er­wise heard about us. I would rec­om­mend the Best Busi­ness Awards to any dy­namic or­gan­i­sa­tion that wants to prove to stake­hold­ers that it is de­liv­er­ing.” – Keith Mal­lia Mi­lanes, MAPFRE Mid­dle­sea plc.

“Ex­pe­ri­ence has shown that an award gives mas­sive cre­dence to our busi­ness, par­tic­u­larly when talk­ing to new cus­tomers and ven­dors that have not dealt di­rectly with us in the past. With ex­ist­ing part­ners, it re­in­forces the fact they have made the right choice to work with us. If I equated the ben­e­fits of win­ning an award to other forms of chan­nel mar­ket­ing, we would prob­a­bly have to spend tens of thousands of euro to get sim­i­lar lev­els of im­pact.” – Mary­grace At­tard, owner of Ta’ Frenc Restau­rant, Gozo

“If you are a young busi­ness without much mar­ket­ing spend, then en­ter­ing awards can be a cost-ef­fec­tive way of gen­er­at­ing pos­i­tive mar­ket­ing and PR, be­cause you are thrown into the spot­light. It also of­fers a seal of ap­proval. Po­ten­tial cus­tomers can look at that and think ‘I’m happy to do busi­ness with this com­pany be­cause they have that recog­ni­tion.” – Felix Busut­til, YADA Dance Com­pany

En­try dead­lines for each round are the last work­ing day of Wed­nes­day 16th Novem­ber. Win­ners will be an­nounced dur­ing the gala din­ner or­gan­ised for th­ese awards. Win­ners will re­ceive a cer­tifi­cate en­dorsed by CIM Am­bas­sador for Malta, to­gether with a sou­venir keep­sake tro­phy. An of­fi­cial sou­venir pro­gramme will be is­sued and pub­lished for the oc­ca­sion.
