We're doing things differently

Every year, for the last 57 years, the Australian Export & Investment Awards have honoured the achievements of outstanding exporters and investors.

This year, we’re doing things differently.

In the face of unprecedented challenges, Australian exporters have shown remarkable resilience – and these efforts deserve to be recognised. So rather than focusing on winners, we’re using the awards program as a platform to recognise and promote stories of resilience, perseverance and pivoting under pressure in the Australian export community.

So we’re presenting the most inspiring business stories of 2020 from across Australia – the tales of innovative businesses, quick-thinking pivots and determined business leaders. From regional to metro, across every State and Territory, from exporters big and small.

Stories that inspire

More than 360 businesses from across Australia shared their stories with us, showcasing the breadth of talent, diversity of industries and geographic range that make up our export sector.

The benefits of their products and services span far beyond Australia - from helping treat cancer patients in Singapore, China and New Zealand; to assisting airports to adopt COVID-safe measures; and delivering virtual learning experiences for students almost anywhere in the world.

While many business owners will continue to feel the strains of a global economic downturn for some time to come, the stories our exporters have shared may inspire you to adapt, innovate, and diversify. Their advice may resonate as you begin to rebuild.
