Milan, May 11 – It was an amazing night yesterday at the Chateau Monfort in Milan. An evening fully dedicated to celebrating organizational resilience with the best professionals in Europe.

PANTA RAY was the proud sponsor of the event. It was an honor for us to award professionals and colleagues who share our same vision on continuity & resilience and represent the excellence in this field.

We congratulate again with all the winners and the shortlisted, who made it through a very tough selection – this was the edition with most entries ever in the history of the BCI European Awards!

We would like to congratulate especially with the Italians who made it to the shortlist – Paola Girdinio and Supernap (with 2 nominations!). This is yet another demonstration that Business Continuity and Resilience are spreading in our country. PANTA RAY hopes this is just the beginning of a growing trend.

Finally, thanks again to the Business Continuity Institute for choosing Milan as the location of this year’s Awards and to all the people who have joined us for this extraordinary occasion.

Below are the shortlists and winners of each category. Good luck to all the winners for the BCI Global Awards in November.
