The New Brunswick Export Awards, Opportunities NB’s (ONB) annual salute to the province’s many successful exporting companies, return on June 1 at the Fredericton Convention Centre. Our flagship event recognizes the innovation and savviness of New Brunswick’s many successful exporting companies. Tickets for this year’s event are now on sale at the link below.
New Brunswickers are notoriously humble, but it’s important that we occasionally take a moment to celebrate the success of our many world-class businesses. The NB Export Awards are a great chance to do exactly that. The event is a unique opportunity to increase the profile of New Brunswick exporters and highlight the benefits of exporting made-in-NB products and services globally.
“New Brunswick companies continually put in the work needed to grow their export sales and sell their products and services all over the world,” says Brian Deveau, ONB’s Director of Export Development. “That’s why we are thrilled to be able to present the Export Awards again this year. These awards offer much-needed recognition of our exporting companies and provide a chance to celebrate their hard work and effort.”
Exports Drive Our Economy Forward
ONB’s Export Development Team offers New Brunswick companies of every size our expertise and guidance on reaching new markets and further developing their sales abroad. In Fiscal 2022-2023, ONB worked with 236 unique companies to support their export efforts in 38 different markets via 42 export-related activities. This work translated into over $143M in projected export revenues reported by NB businesses.
New Brunswick continues to be one of the most export-driven economies in Canada, and fortunately, we have many great export success stories to tout. Companies of every size including past winners C-Therm Technologies, Kognitiv Spark, Lizotte Machine Vision, Chinova Bioworks, Bouctouche Bay Industries, Measurand, InteliSys Aviation Systems, and more are reaching multiple international markets, and seeing exciting business and workforce growth in the process.
Join Us on June 1 in Fredericton
Celebrating our exporters is vital, as success in international markets takes an exceptional amount of time and hard work. The process of exporting has become more complex and challenging, but also more rewarding. ONB is a long-term partner for New Brunswick exporters, and like them, we are in the game to win.
The event takes place on Thursday, June 1 at the Fredericton Convention Centre with the reception beginning at 5:30 pm followed by a formal dinner with local food and beverage, and a much-anticipated awards ceremony. There will also be a training/learning session held that afternoon, prior to the gala, to provide valuable information to NB exporters (details here).
