The annual event, which this year will be presented virtually at a Feb. 16 ceremony, will feature awards to one of the three finalists in the categories of Advancing Technology, Emerging Exporter, Manufactured Products and Professional Services. One of the winners in those categories will also be declared Exporter of the Year.
The award program will also feature interviews on export issues with B.C. Trade Minister George Chow and Economic Recovery Minister Ravi Kahlon.
