In 2019, Romania celebrates 30 years since it has become a democracy after the fall of communism in 1989. We want to discover the positive projectscompanies, and people that have made a contribution in Romania in the last three decades, in addition to discovering young projects and ideas that already have an impact.

In the second edition of the Romania Insider Awards, we will also highlight sustainability, culture and up and coming community initiatives which inspire. We will focus even more on connecting people before, during and after the Romania Insider Awards Gala.

Through an ethical & transparent selection process, with a reputable Board of Advisors and a C-level, independent Jury filtering out applications in 10 award categories, the Romania Insider Awards will zoom in on the positives in stormy times.

Time has come to publicly acknowledge the Romanian companies & projects that share these positive Romania values with us, during an exclusive Awards Gala on 15 October 2019, at JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel.
