GRAPHISOFT Campaign for National ‘Public’ Champion in the European Business Awards
BUDAPEST, November 12, 2013 — GRAPHISOFT, the global leader in Building Information Modeling (BIM) solutions for architects, will compete for the title of Hungary’s ‘National Public Champion’ in this year’s European Business Awards, sponsored by RSM International, as the public vote opens for the first time.
Already named as one of the national champions for Hungary in the internally judged part of the competition, GRAPHISOFT has submitted a company video online, giving an in-depth story of the award-winning business and its successes. It will now compete against all other country national champions for the public vote. The company with the most votes will be named ‘National Public Champion’ for Hungary on January 14, 2014.
This first phase of the online voting is open from November 11 to January 2, giving GRAPHISOFT 7 weeks to garner as many votes as possible. All the videos for this year’s National Champions can be found at the European Business Awards website: www.businessawardseurope.com. GRAPHISOFT’s video can be viewed here.
Akos Pfemeter, Vice President of Marketing, GRAPHISOFT said, “With just over 7 weeks for people to vote online for their favorite company, we are confident that the public will get behind us, view our video and vote for GRAPHISOFT. The public vote means a great deal as it is our existing and potential customers and clients giving their approval to our success.”
The second public vote will take place between January 14 and March 25 and the result of this final round of voting is the selection of one overall ‘European Public Champion’, who will be announced and awarded at the Awards Gala event in May, 2014.
Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said, “The public vote is a very important part of the Awards as it gives these entrepreneurial companies another way of showcasing their achievements to a wider audience across Europe. It was a huge success last year, with over 35,000 votes cast.”
“This year’s videos show some of the most successful and sustainable companies in Europe and we hope that anyone interested in business will take some time to watch the videos, either from their own country or from other countries, and then cast their vote,” Tripp added.
Separately, the video entries from all 527 National Champions representing 31 countries across Europe will be reviewed and scored by the European Business Awards’ panel of judges. On January 14, 2014, the Chairman of Judges will announce the 100 Ruban d’Honneur recipients. The overall European winners of the ten European Business Awards categories will be announced at the same time as the European Public Champion at the Gala Event in May.
