The nomination period for Latin Trade magazine’s eighteenth edition of the BRAVO Business Awards is still open, and will continue until March 15, 2012.  Nominations can be submitted at www.bravo.latintrade.com.

Latin Trade, the leading pan-regional business magazine focusing on Latin America and the Caribbean, will once again award twelve distinguished leaders from the region to recognize their excellence and achievements in government, business and civic society.

“Latin Trade’s BRAVO Business Awards, widely acknowledged as the ‘Oscars of Business in Latin America,’ recognize the best of the best. Together with the annual Latin Trade Symposium, they have become one of the most anticipated events of the year. We are extremely proud, as this is our eighteenth consecutive year of recognizing excellence,” said Rosemary Winters, executive director of Latin Trade.  “Hundreds of thousands of our readers worldwide nominate a broad array of leaders for each category, which is a testament to the talent and the ongoing development we see in the Latin and Caribbean regions.”   

The twelve award categories open for nomination this year are:
·    Lifetime Achievement
·    Leader of the Year
·    Innovative Leader of the Year
·    Financier of the Year
·    Distinguished Service in the Hemisphere
·    CEO of the Year
·    Dynamic CEO of the Year
·    Pioneering CEO of the Year
·    Social Responsibility CEO of the Year
·    Emerging CEO of the Year
·    Environmental Leader of the Year
·    Humanitarian of the Year  

Once nominations are received, the BRAVO Council, in conjunction with a group of international executives, government officials and leading academics, narrows down the list of candidates based on specific criteria and finally chooses the winners of the Latin Trade BRAVO Business Awards.

This year, Latin Trade in partnership with the IDB will hold its annual Latin Trade Symposium in the fall in Miami, Florida. The one-day event brings together business leaders from throughout the continent to participate in panels and discussions on a wide variety of topics. The day will culminate with a black-tie gala to honor the Latin Trade BRAVO Business Awards winners.

Last year’s winners were outstanding leaders from various countries throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, including Chile, Dominican Republic, Mexico and Panama.
