Nominations Open for the 2018 India Australia Business & Community Awards
IABCA showcases outstanding business and community initiatives by providing a platform through which these migrant success stories can be told, exchanged, celebrated, and disseminated on a nation-wide scale. Additionally, IABCA provides a launching pad for future success between aspiring businesses by promoting networking, collaboration, and the exchange of important and innovative ideas between the two nations. In Australia's rapidly diversifying business and community landscape, the India Australia Business & Community Awards has positioned itself as a core component of Australia's business events calendar.
Since it's inception in 2014, IABCA has engaged over 1400 of Australia and India's most influential and widely renowned businesses, professionals, and community leaders. Conversely, the awards have also functioned as a prominent platform for emerging entrepreneurs, young professionals, and start-up businesses to establish a strong foothold within their industry and the Australia-India space, with a handful of ongoing success stories having resulted from being conferred an IABCA award. Nevertheless, increased engagement with the IABCA initiative is by no means limited to a rise in nominations, as the platform has also prospered alongside the rallying support of various Government institutions and representatives, media personalities, and public influencers. The sustained engagement from delegates such as His Excellency, Dr. A.M Gondane, High Commissioner of India to Australia and Her Excellency, Ms. Harinder Sidhu, High Commissioner from Australia to India has given the IABCA initiative a previously unattainable degree of prestige and transnational significance.
In recent years, the IABCA initiative has undergone several major transformations to ensure that it is able to cater more effectively to the vast amount of contributions being made to strengthen the Australia India relationship. Recently, IABCA widened its eligibility terms to encompass Australian residents to enter the awards if their work or community endeavours were directly benefitting the Australia India relationship. This allowed major organisations such as Riverina Oils and Bio Energy, one of Australia's largest exporters of Agri-Food products to India, to partake in our initiative. Combined with the introduction of the Indian Investment in the Australian Market Award in 2017, IABCA now celebrates major contributions to the Australia-India trade and investment relationship. In 2018, IABCA will be introducing a new category, the Excellence in Innovation Award, which accounts for the rapidly increasing influx of Indian migrants and consequent emerging start-up businesses and innovative products, services, and policies that are being executed in response.
