The Georgia Department of Economic Development is looking to honor companies that began exporting to a new country last year. 

The G.L.O.B.E. – Georgia Launching Opportunities By Exporting –  awards are to be doled out in the form of certificates at a “Go Global” reception in February at the InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta hotel.

To qualify, companies simply must have begun selling their products or services to a new country during calendar year 2013. 

The reception is to be part of a broader event featuring the state’s trade and investment representatives in 10 countries, who usually convene in Atlanta each year.

Visit to learn more or to submit an application before the Jan. 31 deadline.
