Elevate and celebrate in 2021

After a pause in 2020, the Premier of Queensland’s Export Awards are back, celebrating and elevating Queensland exporters.

For more than 30 years, the awards have recognised the businesses behind Queensland’s $70 billion export industry. They highlight the energy, passion and innovation of Queensland exporters, and are one of the state’s most prestigious accolades.

This year, the export awards have a special significance. Amid the challenges of the past 18 months, we’ve seen Queensland exporters step up, find new markets, and develop new products to meet global needs – helping the Queensland economy recover in the process.

The Queensland awards are run in collaboration with Austrade and the Australian Export & Investment Awards, a national program that honours the achievements of outstanding Australian exporters and investors.

Winners of the Premier of Queensland’s Export Awards automatically become finalists in the national awards.

Whether you’re a small or large business, in the heart of Brisbane or in regional Queensland – the Premier of Queensland’s Export Awards are an opportunity to build business connections, elevate your brand and be recognised for your export achievements.
