The winners have been picked from the shortlisted entries and were presented during a gala dinner evening in the Netherlands on Thursday 17 March.

It was a hotly contested event this year with 36 companies in the ten categories shortlisted from a total of 45 entries. All categories had multiple entries so it was down to the wire as the winners were announced.
