Applications being accepted for Governor's Award for Excellence in Exporting

DENVER - Thurs., March 17, 2016 - The Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT) and the World Trade Center Denver are now accepting applications for the 2016 Governor's Award for Excellence in Exporting. This award has been given to Colorado exporters annually since 1970 and recognizes economic growth through international business. 

The Excellence in Exporting award provides official recognition from the State of Colorado and can help local companies increase their competitiveness in international markets. The 2015 awardees were Diversified Machine Systems and Dean Swift Seed Co., and Oliver Manufacturing was the 2014 recipient. 

"Establishing rapport with potential customers half a world away can be challenging," said Jon Moreland, Oliver Manufacturing's Director of Sales and Marketing. "What better way to gain credibility in international opportunities than to tout an award from the Governor of Colorado." 

Colorado-based companies that have exported products or services for three years or more are eligible to apply. Applications are due on or before April 15, 2016. Winners will receive tickets to the 43rd annual World Trade Day conference on May 19, 2016. World Trade Day is the region's premier international trade event, and awardees will be recognized at the event. This year's World Trade Day theme is Exploring Your Trans Pacific Partners

Colorado exported nearly $8 billion in products in 2015, and an estimated $14 billion in services. The Excellence in Exporting Award recognizes this contribution to the state's economy by highlighting noteworthy accomplishments by Colorado exporters.
