The first early-bird entry deadline for 2013 American Business Awards, the premier business awards program in the U.S.A., is Friday, November 16 and we thought it would be helpful for organizations if we highlighted our live event awards categories.

  4. Best Tradeshow or Convention
  5. Best Association Event or Meeting
  6. Best Corporate Image Event
  7. Best New Product Introduction Event
  8. Best Internal Recognition/Motivational Event
  9. Best Sales Meeting
  10. Best Sales Presentation
  11. Best Public Relations Event (New category for 2013)

Your event awards submissions should include:

  1. An essay of up to 525 words describing the event: its genesis, goals, development, and results. You may include detailed production notes, audience demographics, etc.
  2.  Any number of supporting files and web addresses that you may upload to our server to support your entry and provide more background information to the judges. These may include video clips, photographs, press reviews, news articles, and so on.
  3. Optionally, you may list creative and production credits for your event - a list of the people and organizations that contributed to its development.

Our 2012 Gold ABA event of the year winners included:
