ABOUT ABSL GALA
AWARDS

2020 marks the 5th year of delivering the ABSL Awards, continuing the tradition to represent the voice of the business services. ABSL has created the ABSL Awards with the purpose of recognizing the most innovative, impactful and valuable projects and initiatives of the business services industry over the course of the previous year.

We encourage companies to become a voice for the industry by enrolling their high value projects and get the chance to be appreciated by the business sector during the ABSL Gala, that will take place on April 2 in Bucharest.

ABSL Awards Gala inspires the business services community to continuously strive for excellence and by this, to strengthen the sector’s position within the Romanian economy.
