What’s new in 2020?

At Global Victoria, we believe great ideas break boundaries and should be shared for the world to see. That’s why this year’s Governor of Victoria Export Awards (GOVEA) will be like no other.

2020 has been an incredibly challenging year for Victoria’s exporters. The severe impact felt across the global economy and by Victoria’s business community has been unprecedented.

Despite these insurmountable obstacles, many of Victoria's exporters have risen to the challenges of 2020 and continue to advance their business operations. They've demonstrated outstanding resilience, innovation and adaptability to meet these challenges head-on by either pivoting their business operations to help tackle coronavirus or putting plans and strategies into action to combat the downturn.

These incredible stories will be the focus for GOVEA 2020.

Help us to bring your story into the global spotlight. If your business, or a business you know of has demonstrated either or all these attributes (resilience, innovation and adaptability), we encourage you to share your story with us, so we can share it with the world.

Who should apply for GOVEA 2020?

GOVEA 2020 are open to all Victorian exporters regardless of their size or location in the state. GOVEA will continue to highlight businesses that are regional-based, indigenous-led and feature female entrepreneurship.
