Golden Bridge Awards 2017 Applications are open!

Are you the next winner of a Golden Bridge Trade & Export Award?


Michel Vanhoonacker, BLCC Chairman
“Former winners and finalists have confirmed that the award has enhanced their image in the UK or Belgian market and at home, and has provided an incentive for their staff. It is particularly encouraging that so many companies, having won the Golden Bridge Trade & Export Award and experienced the benefits, decide to sponsor or support the awards year after year.”

What are they?

The Golden Bridge Awards recognise the trade and export success of UK companies doing business in Belgium, and Belgian & Luxembourg companies doing business in the UK. The awards celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2016, in which five outstanding companies were presented with awards after impressing a panel of judges from the business community, previous winners, representatives from regional trade bodies and The British Ambassador to Belgium, Alison Rose, as well as H.E. Guy Trouveroy, Ambassador of the King of the Belgians at the Court of St James’
