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.

The GOVEA 2020 awards were 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.

GOVEA 2020 Awards Ceremony - Celebrating our Export Champions

On 25 November, we celebrated the Victorian businesses that were able to demonstrate resilience, innovation and adaptability to reimagine their business model through the challenges created by coronavirus (COVID-19).

Many of the businesses are being recognised on the global stage for exporting local skills, knowledge and expertise and Victoria continues to be recognised for its outstanding capabilities across all sectors.
