Top managers & businesses join Romania Insider Awards this year: who’s on board

Romania Insider Awards has brought together 21 renowned Romanian and foreign business executives and professionals, alongside 14 confirmed partner companies and 14 supporting business organizations, who have joined forces to discover game changers in Romania.

The competition’s Jury is made up of 7 top managers leading large companies in Romania, while 14 top business leaders and professionals are part of the Board of Advisors. They will select the winners in seven award categories during an ethical and transparent two-step selection process. Check the  full list of Jury members below.

Nominations for the Romania Insider Awards are open online until August 31. We will also organize an online vote for the projects which qualified in the first selection stage.

The call for the Young Generation Panel is also open – young professionals under 30, with at least 3 years of work experience, are invited to sign up here for this panel and then nominate companies, people or personalities which bring a contribution to the Romanian society. They will decide who receives the Young Generation’s Award for Contribution to Romanian Society.

We will discover both the Jury prizes and the public vote winners of the 2018 edition at the Romania insider Awards Gala on October 16, 2018, at the Intercontinental Hotel in Bucharest.

The Gala is already highly pre-booked. A limited number of seats are available still at early bird prices until August 15, 2018. You can book tickets online here.  A limited number of tables is also available for company branding in visibility packages, or stand alone.
