Stars of Business and SME Beyond Borders – twin highlights of the SME calendar

The exclusive Stars of Business gala awards takes place at 8:00pm on November 2nd – and it’s the perfect conclusion to a ground-breaking, benchmark conference: ‘SME Beyond Borders’.

Drawing together VVIP speakers from across the globe, SME Beyond Borders is a supercharged, powerhouse SME event, authoritatively assessing sector trends and analyzing the key factors influencing the performance of SMEs in the region. The winners of Stars of Business walk in the footsteps of the thought leadership and quest for excellence that SME Beyond Borders crystallizes like no other event in the calendar.

Recognising achievement and raising the bar

November 2nd is an apex date in the SME calendar. It’s when we recognise and honour the SMEs whose performance has raised the bar and set new benchmarks of business excellence.

Whether your business is just starting out and aspiring to great things; or a medium-sized enterprise with a brilliant history of growth and achievement, now is your chance to shine.

What’s more, there are 22 categories you can enter – so there’s something for companies from every industry and background.

This year, for the first time, we welcome entries from nations across the GCC and Middle East. If you’re a winner in one of the key categories, we’ll bring you to a glittering awards gala in Dubai – and honour your achievements in front of 1,000 key VIPs and dignitaries.

The Stars of Business Awards is a glittering annual gala. Extensively promoted across the press and online media, it’s a ‘who’s who’ of the regional SME universe, attracting 800 attendees to a sumptuous, glamorous evening of networking, followed by gourmet dinner, awards ceremony and sensational entertainments. This year’s venue couldn’t be better – the sensational Madinet Jumeirah with its wealth of unrivalled amenities.

A night to remember on a grand scale, guests include senior government officials, captains of industry – and the owners, directors and managers of the region’s leading SMEs.
