The Business SA Export Awards celebrate exporting excellence in South Australia by recognising the most dynamic and innovative businesses in the State. Through showcasing South Australia’s most successful exporters, these awards inspire greater involvement in exporting and recognise these outstanding businesses that call South Australia home.

The Awards operate as a two-tier process - with exporters first achieving State distinction through the Business SA Export Awards program, before progressing as national finalists to the Australian Export Awards. As a national finalist, South Australian Award winners will be benchmarked against their peers across the country, with winners receiving national recognition for their international success.

The winners of the Business SA 2017 Export Awards were formally announced on Thursday 26 October at a gala dinner held at the Adelaide Convention Centre.

Check out this short clip recapping the night:

Business SA Design for Export Awards

The Business SA Design for Export Awards is a joint initiative of Business SA and Good Design Australia.

Successful exporters begin their journey with just one product, and that one product is created by DESIGN.

We want more South Australians to begin that journey.

The Design for Export Awards is an initiative aimed at discovering, celebrating and activating excellence in design led innovation in South Australia.
2017 winners, the MICRO-X ‘CARESTREAM DRX REVOLUTION NANO’ MOBILE X RAY and RISING SUN PICTURES epitomize the creativity and resilience of a successful design-centric exporter.
In its inaugural year, the Design for Export Awards attracted an incredible calibre of submissions from 5 regions across South Australia, representing 12 diverse industry sectors and exporting to over 140 countries.
Calling all South Australian cities, towns, regions, communities. If you are exporting products or services and use DESIGN as a key business development strategy, tell us your story.
