The Swedish Chamber of Commerce for the Netherlands, in co-operation with Business Sweden and the Embassy of Sweden, is very proud to present the Swedish Chamber Business Awards 2021.

– Swedish Chamber Achievement Award 2021

– Swedish Chamber Entrepreneurship Award 2021

The Annual Swedish Business Awards was launched in 2010 in collaboration with the Swedish Chamber of Commerce for the Netherlands, The Swedish Embassy, and Business Sweden under the name The Swedish Chamber Export Prize. Swedish companies successfully established on the Dutch market are able to apply for the Business Awards. Companies that have received the Awards during the years are among others Handelsbanken, Budbee, Scania, Vattenfall, Oatly, SWECO, and SKF to mention a few. 

The Grand Award Ceremony is part of a full-day Swedish Chamber of Commerce 60th Anniversary celebrations with a Swedish-Dutch Innovation and Sustainability Summit followed by a Gala Dinner in the evening. The exclusive program offers excellent opportunities for the Award-winning companies to present themselves and to meet the Swedish – Dutch extensive business network in the Netherlands. Due to the new restrictions regarding the Corona situation presented by the Dutch government at the Press conference on Friday, November 12, 2021, The Swedish Chamber of Commerce has been forced to postpone the Swedish Chamber of Commerce 60th Anniversary Innovation and Sustainability Summit and Gala Dinner on November 18, to a date in 2022.

The Swedish Chamber Business Awards aims to strengthen the Swedish-Dutch business relations and are awarded to Swedish companies in the Netherlands.
