Techbuyer’s Awards

We are incredibly proud of how far Techbuyer has come as a business since its birth in 2005. During this time, we have been awarded, nominated, and shortlisted for a number of incredible awards that have fuelled our desire to grow and develop as a business, and ultimately act upon our company values.

The awards we have received cover a range of topics, including sustainability and the circular economy, as well as more business centred achievements, such as international trade. We would also like to celebrate our other key achievements and thank the entire Techbuyer team for helping us get to where we are today.

Stevie Awards for Company of the Year

September 2021 saw Techbuyer take home a Gold Stevie Award for Company of The Year at the International Business Awards. These global awards aim to celebrate business success across all sectors and company sizes. It was an honour to be awarded this achievement amongst some massive names in the business world.

Queens Awards for International Trade

The Queens Award for Enterprise for International Trade was awarded to Techbuyer in April 2020.

However, due to the pandemic, this award wasn’t accepted until mid-way through 2021. The award was presented to us by the Lord-Lieutenant Mrs Jo Ropner, representative of the Queen. The Queen’s Award was a turning point for Techbuyer in terms of awards and business recognition as it granted us the confidence to expand into other awards and press
