Whereas during the "Oscars" films receive awards, the "Business Oscars" (“WirtschaftsOskar”) recognise special business achievements in the US market.
This year Doka is nominated in the "Spectacular" category.
The red carpet will be rolled out this February for Austrian companies in the US market. The stars here are the companies who are enjoying success in the most challenging market in the world with exceptional achievements and innovations. The Business Oscars are awarded in five different categories by the Los Angeles World Trade Center. "The nominated companies highlight the strength of competition in the Austrian economy in the most competitive market in the world", emphasises Dr. Rudolf Thaler, Austrian business delegate in Los Angeles.
On 20th February, two days before the main film Oscars are awarded, it will be time for the night of the US Business Awards. Doka, a worldwide market leader in formwork systems, is nominated in the "Spectacular" category. And this motto also proved to be fitting for the Austrian formwork company in 2014 when the yellow and blue site eyecatchers where turned into key landmarks. The construction of the highest residential building in the Western Hemisphere, 432 Park Avenue in New York, the construction of the World Trade Center – Tower 3, a 1.1 km long tunnel underneath the Elizabeth River, the highest bridge in Virginia and Diamond Pylons for an iron railway bridge are just a few examples of Doka's achievements in the USA. For Doka, North America is an up-and-coming market in which growth continued in 2014.
The award will be presented for the fifth time this year by the Los Angeles World Trade Center of FOREIGN TRADE AUSTRIA.
