Tasmanian’s top performers in the exporting community were celebrated at the Tasmanian Export Awards 2021, building capacity within the community and creating new jobs – a key priority under the Tasmanian Government’s Business Strategy 2019- 2025.
The event took place in the North West at the Paranaple Convention Center in Devonport. This year’s winners represented Tasmania’s leaders in overseas exports based on their levels of achievement and ingenuity.
Recognition for this success is particularly deserved given the COVID-19 pandemic, with the state’s exporters matching the country’s economic numbers and, in many cases, coming out on top.
The event was supported by several companies that are an integral part of the journey to export many products and services of the winning companies. This year’s award partner, TasPorts, has a long history of facilitating trade for the benefit of all Tasmanians. The level of involvement of TasPorts in the awards shows its continued commitment.
