The Queen's Awards Magazine 2018

THE 2017 Queen’s Awards for Enterprise reception took place at Buckingham Palace, as has become tradition, and was graciously hosted by The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh. The year 2017 marked The Queen’s sapphire reign and was extra special as she is the longest-reigning monarch – not only in the UK, but in the world. There were 176 winners of Queen’s Awards in total, with five companies receiving double awards, a truly remarkable achievement. The largest category was International Trade, where 102 awards were given out, followed by 57 for Innovation and the smaller categories of Sustainable Development and Promoting Opportunity had 11 and six winners, respectively. The winning companies were delighted to attend the Buckingham Palace reception, held to mark their achievements, and many took to social media to announce their good news and excitement about meeting The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh on the day. There was a babble of excitement as the royal pair circulated the room and chatted to the guests. These talented entrepreneurs are now able to fly The Queen’s Award flag at their offices and use the Queen’s Award emblem in their marketing activities. Past winners have reported benefiting from worldwide recognition, increased commercial value, greater press coverage and a boost to staff morale. at The Queen’s Awards Reception The 2017winners
