LONDON, April 28, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Despite the severe global recession, many top-achieving companies pushed through the economic challenges, continuing to accelerate growth for their businesses. These high performers redefined industry benchmarks and devised innovative strategies to stay on top of their markets. Most importantly, the leaders of these companies prove that even during tough economic conditions success and growth can be achieved through visionary leadership, best practices and competitive intelligence.


Frost Sullivan will proudly acknowledge the noteworthy accomplishments of these distinguished growth leaders at the Growth Excellence Awards Banquet on Tuesday, 18 May, 2010 in London's iconic Emirates Stadium. The ceremony will be part of the Global Community of Growth, Innovation and Leadership conference - a one-of-a-kind platform that allows visionaries to network, brainstorm, and share fresh perspectives about improving performance and driving growth.

At this champagne and black tie ceremony, Frost Sullivan will formally recognise and honour the achievements of companies at the forefront of growth. These market leaders have gone above and beyond with their best practices and competitive approach. The ceremony will applaud the premier growth companies and leaders who have demonstrated diligence, perseverance, and dedication that have enabled them to excel in the increasingly competitive global marketplace.

Frost Sullivan's Growth, Innovation and Leadership conference will provide all participants the opportunity to interact with these esteemed, future-oriented leaders. Through diverse interactive discussions, panels, and sessions, company leaders will explore new ideas, practices, and solutions. They will gain valuable insight into restructuring growth strategies to achieve business success in today's economic climate. By following the example of the inspirational award recipients, company leaders can learn from fellow professionals about how to effectively evolve and succeed in a tough environment.

The global marketplace is exiting the worst recession in a generation. It has been a very difficult time for many companies. However, firms which pulled the innovation lever and adapted their business models to the changing environment have proved to be successful and are poised for success in the building uptick. A company's dedication to innovation can become a key driver of overall performance, says Frost Sullivan Partner Dorman Followwill. During these months we have seen extraordinary companies and leaders achieving great success despite the economic challenges across all market sectors in our coverage. The companies that will be celebrated at GIL are sterling examples of how to win in the toughest of times. We believe their stories must be told as best practices to inspire other companies to accelerate their own growth in 2010.

The Awards ceremony will open on Tuesday, 18 May, 2010 at 6.30 pm with registration and champagne reception, followed at 7.40 by welcome speech and keynote address, and dinner at 8 pm.
