Welcome to 4th annual APAC Business Awards!
Are you a business owner, entrepreneur or simply someone that has received an exceptional service from a business based in the Asia Pacific region? Good news! You’re in the right place.
Every year, the 2019 APAC Business Awards seek out and reward the very best businesses and initiatives that the Asia Pacific region has to offer. It is our firm belief that a successful business is not solely demonstrated through its annual turnover or size. Instead we focus on the service/ product that the business provides, its dedication to innovation and most importantly the relationship the business has with its customers.
In our opinion the Asia Pacific region offers some of the world’s most vibrantly diverse and dedicated businesses. In recent years the Asia Pacific region has served as a crucial growth engine facilitating global business development. With this in mind, the 2019 APAC Business Awards is open to all types of businesses and entrepreneurs ranging from financial services, technology and consultancy all the way through to retail, health/ wellness and tourism. Our sole objective through exploring this famously diverse region is to celebrate the fantastic accomplishments business owners and entrepreneurs continue to make across the Asia Pacific region.
The 2019 APAC Business Awards are judged purely on merit. To ensure a level playing field for each and every business involved, our in-house research team carefully analyse any information that is available both online and in the public domain. Each nominee is also asked to prepare a short case file disclosing their chosen business sector and practice, any previous accolades won as well as what differentiates them from competitors in their region. Product samples and media packs are also accepted but are non-mandatory.
Winning one of our APAC Business Awards provides you with the evidence you need to prove that beyond any doubt you stand out from the crowd in your business sector. Enhancing your victory with both visual and digital reminders can be the perfect way for you to attract new clients, maintain existing customer relationships and further establish yourselves as leaders within the Asia Pacific region. Receiving third party recognition can also help boost the reputation of your company and the trust in the products and services that you offer.
Those lucky enough to make our winners’ selection will be presented to our readers as the leading lights of the Asia Pacific region. So if you know of, own or are part of an organisation which you feel is worthy of acknowledgement then please complete the voting form details below.

The team work hard in identifying great businesses, driving many of the nominations themselves. The team encourage external nominations from magazine subscribers, web visitors, social media following, clients and wider circulation. Nominating parties are invited to put forward either their own business or third-party companies whom they hold in high regard.
All nominees are formally requested to accept their nomination, all firms and individuals are obviously free to accept or decline if they so wish. Those who formally accept are given the opportunity to submit additional supporting information. There is no obligation to complete and supply such material, we have found that many nominees value this stage, in the process, as do our research team.
Our dedicated research team will assess all information presented to them. The team gather information independently from a variety of publicly accessible sources, which are assessed alongside any material supplied by a nominating party or by the nominee themselves. The research team casts their final judgment based on various criteria such as business performance, longevity, diversification, growth (either sustained or rapid), significant innovations, feedback from stakeholders etc.
Once winners are selected, they are personally notified before any public announcement is made, allowing time for any communications throughout the wider business and the coordination of marketing strategies. Unfortunately, not everyone can be a winner; however, all who take part are encouraged to come back next year. Once the press embargo is lifted, details of our award winners will be made public via the APAC Insider website, award winners’ magazine and subscriber newsletter.
We offer a range of promotional packages and items to APAC Insider award winners, these vary from inclusion in the free-of-charge winners’ directory, trophies, content in our magazine and content on our website.
We encourage winners to publicly announce their win independently in order to gain maximum exposure. Announcements via company websites, blogs, social media, via publicly released press releases, and through local and national press are all great ways of maximising the exposure which can be gained from such a great achievement.
