NJITA NEW JERSEY INTERNATIONAL TRADE AWARDS NEW JERSEY DISTRICT EXPORT COUNCIL PROGRAM: Honoring Excellence in Exporting:
May 17 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am
The New Jersey District Export Council (NJDEC) is proud to recognize excellence among New Jersey’s leading exporters in the four categories of Exporter of the Year, Service Exporter, New Exporter, and Minority Owned/Diverse Exporter.
The goal of the NJ International Trade Awards (NJITA) is to recognize and honor New Jersey companies that have worked diligently to expand their exporting efforts. They may have accomplished this by penetrating new markets or by increasing their presence in existing markets – or by embracing both growth strategies! By doing so they have contributed to the creation of new jobs while subsequently improving and enhancing the New Jersey economic landscape.
Throughout 2023 the winning companies will gain valuable exposure across the state. Winners will be featured on the NJDEC website, have the opportunity to participate in interviews and be included on social media platforms in order to promote their company, while emphasizing the important role of exports in New Jersey.
