The current economic downturn has had an undoubtedly profound effect on companies from every industry across the globe. The news is littered with stories of bankruptcy, budget cuts, delayed projects and downsizing. What is rarely heard are the stories of companies who are staying afloat and even expanding during these troubling times. What sets these prosperous companies apart from their failing counterparts is their focus on growth and innovation, which is the key to succeed in such a tumultuous economic climate.
Frost & Sullivan will celebrate the success of these companies at the "2009 Growth Excellence Awards Banquet" on Wednesday 20 May. Movers & Shakers from around the world will be honoured during this event which will be held at the Sofitel St. James in London following Frost & Sullivan's Global Congress on Corporate Growth - GIL. Top performers across several industries including Automotive & Transportation, Information & Communication Technologies, Energy & Environment, and Automation & Electronics will be recognised for their success at this prestigious event.
"The need for innovation within both industry and corporation is urgent, with a focus on growth more relevant than ever. It is during these uncertain times that the winners of the future will emerge, and many of these achievements will be recognised during Frost & Sullivan's Growth Excellence Awards", says Frost & Sullivan's Partner John Raspin, who is co-ordinating GIL 2009: Europe.
Over 25 awards will be presented at the awards ceremony, which span across a wide spectrum of areas, including Growth Strategy Leadership, Product Innovation, Green Excellence, Technology Innovation, Product Line Strategy, Hot Investment Opportunity and Company of the Year.
The Frost & Sullivan "2009 Growth Excellence Awards Banquet", will be held in conjunction with the "GIL 2009 – Europe: Growth, Innovation & Leadership" held at the Sofitel St. James, London from 19 – 20 May.
