In September 2010, TIBA sponsored and presented the Business of the Year Award at the CoastRider Pride of Spain award ceremony. The awards are presented after nominations are put forward and a panel of judges decide who goes through to the final. Each finalist is then invited to an interview and is filmed by Viva TV. The winners are not announced until they are presented “Oscar” style on the evening.
Richard Cavender the TIBA president stated “The Pride of Spain Awards is very well known and is talked about for months. At TIBA we know that we need to reach as many people within the business community as we can. Sponsoring the Business of the Year Award was an ideal way to support local businesses and inform business owners of how The International Business Association (TIBA) can help them on a daily basis.”
