The BCI Global Awards recognise the outstanding achievements of Business Continuity professionals and organizations worldwide and pay tribute to some of the finest talent in the industry. Becoming a winner of a BCI Award gives international recognition for hard-earned achievements and is considered a great accolade within the BC profession.

The Awards constitute a key vehicle in raising the profile of the BC profession and the BC discipline. By putting the spotlight on the remarkable accomplishments and successes of BC professionals and organizations, the Awards serve to showcase the value of the profession and to demonstrate its critical importance to organizations of any size, in any sector, no matter where. They play a central role in highlighting the career opportunities within the profession and for sowing the seeds for future BC workforce generations, which is crucial to the sustainability of the profession.

All winners of the BCI Regional Awards are automatically entered into the BCI Global Awards. BCI Regional Awards are currently held in Asia, Australasia, Europe, India, North America, Africa and the Middle East.

The BCI Global Awards are celebrated in style at our spectacular Gala Dinner, which is hosted every year at a top London venue and concludes day one of the annual BCM World Conference and Exhibition, the leading event in the global BCM calendar. The Gala Dinner furthermore provides an excellent networking platform, bringing together BC professionals from across regions and nations to share their experiences and to celebrate their victories in a fantastic setting.
