The Alberta Export Awards

The Alberta Export Awards are the province’s most prestigious awards, paying tribute to the success and innovative approaches of Alberta export companies. Extending across industries and including both rural and urban representation, the awards are a celebration of the contributions exporters have made to both the provincial and national economy. 

The event not only celebrates export success but highlights the path to growth and the challenges these organizations have overcome. To help exporters further their business goals, the awards provide international growth opportunities by connecting clients to export enablers.
