Third BIZZ Awards cer­e­mony to be held in Dubai

Muscat Daily - - BUSINESS -

Mus­cat - The third BIZZ Awards cer­e­mony will be held on Novem­ber 15, 2017 at the Burj Al Arab Ho­tel, in Dubai. Two pre­vi­ous cer­e­monies were held ear­lier this year in Bucharest, Ro­ma­nia and Saint Thomas, US Vir­gin Is­lands.

The BIZZ is one of the most im­por­tant busi­ness ex­cel­lence awards in the world. It is awarded to lead­ing busi­ness peo­ple in each sec­tor who stand out for their busi­ness ex­cel­lence in their re­spec­tive coun­tries, a press re­lease said.

Now in its 13th year, the awards are aimed at small and medium en­ter­prises (SMEs), larger and more es­tab­lished en­ter­prises. Com­pa­nies are judged against six key cri­te­ria: Their busi­ness lead­er­ship, man­age­ment sys­tems in place, the qual­ity of prod­ucts and ser­vices, busi­ness cre­ativ­ity and in­no­va­tion, cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil- ity, and the com­pany’s achieve­ments and awards.

This year, more than 100 com­pa­nies from around the world will be recog­nised at the cer­e­mony, most of them from the GCC states, Asia, Africa, and the Amer­i­cas.

The BIZZ Awards are given out by the World Con­fed­er­a­tion of Busi­nesses (WORLDCOB), a lead­ing in­ter­na­tional or­gan­i­sa­tion founded over 12 years ago and based in Hous­ton, US. WORLDCOB seeks to pro­mote the gen­er­a­tion of new busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties, so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity, and busi­ness ex­cel­lence among its mem­bers.

Past re­cip­i­ents of the BIZZ Awards in­clude com­pa­nies such as First Gulf Bank (UAE), Union Na­tional Bank (UAE), Dubai Duty Free (UAE), Abu Dhabi Univer­sity (UAE), Emi­rates Na­tional Oil Com­pany Lim­ited LLC (UAE), Na­tional Bank of Bahrain BSC (Bahrain), Doha Bank (Qatar), Metro Mar­kets (Egypt), Baghdad Soft Drinks Com­pany (Iraq), United En­gi­neers and Con­trac­tors (Pak­istan), and Saudi Tele­com Com­pany (Saudi Ara­bia). Other com­pa­nies that have been hon­oured in the past are: Ankol (Poland), Rus­slavbank CJSC (Rus­sia), ISD Por­tolan Ltd (Hun­gary), Ex­port Im­port Bank of Bangladesh Ltd, Ethiopian Air­lines, Niger Sa­hel Air­lines, Swazi­land De­vel­op­ment & Sav­ings Bank, and the Harare In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy (Zim­babwe).

In ad­di­tion to the awards cel­e­bra­tion, every BIZZ Awards cer­e­mony of­fers net­work­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties with other out­stand­ing com­pa­nies from around the world. The gath­er­ing al­lows at­ten­dees to share ex­pe­ri­ences and ex­change ideas while en­joy­ing a lux­u­ri­ous evening in one of the world’s most el­e­gant and im­pres­sive set­tings.
