The International Business Awards committee received submissions from over 3,200 businesses from more than 50 nations across the globe. Categories included Marketing, Management, Customer Service, IT, and Website Design. All entries were critiqued by a panel of judges composed of top leaders from creative agencies located in major markets around the world. Judging was completed in multiple rounds, with only the top 300 submissions earning entry into the final round. In total, more than 300 top global executives participate in the judging process.
“We’re delighted to be honored by the IBA committee,” said Borenstein Group President and CEO, Gal Borenstein, “Especially considering we were up against some of the brightest minds in app development from around the globe.”
