Global Excellence Awards

Presenting the seventh annual instalment of LUXlife Magazine’s Global Excellence Awards in 2023! Once again, we offer well-deserved recognition to businesses at all levels and subsections of the Luxury sector! By the end of 2023 the Luxury sector is expected to reach $1.2trn in total sales. Companies in this sector continue to show resilience in times of economic recession and recovery following international crises. Now that lockdowns have been lifted, luxury experiences are more available and a substantial portion of savings made by consumers during the pandemic are now being spent on personal comforts.

Luxury has become part of modern self-care, especially following a period in which access to luxuries was globally restricted. Consumer desire for high fashion, luxury experiences and exquisite food and beverages is rising, as the importance of seizing the day becomes clearer. Despite what many may believe, this sector is not only geared towards the ultra-wealthy. In fact, the larger share of Luxury goods consumers is those with modest incomes who wish to indulge themselves.

The Luxury sector is constantly evolving and requires an astute business leader with a clear vision to remain competitive. Brands who establish a dialogue with the younger generations and learn to appeal to current social values are commonly the global leaders in luxury. Additionally, in-store experiences, brand design and tech-savvy are all deciding factors in consumer engagement.

As with all our awards, the Global Excellence Awards 2023 are merit driven. Our Research and Judging team will not decide winners based upon company size, turnover or number of votes received. Neither are these awards restricted to household name brands with expensive products. Luxury is a multifaceted concept denoted by quality, craftsmanship and prestige rather than just price alone.

Businesses who show product innovation, expert branding and unbeatable customer service will stand the best chance of becoming a winner in the Global Excellence Awards 2023.

Should you impress our judging panel enough to win, you will be presented with an unmissable opportunity to promote your achievements by taking advantage of LUXlife Magazine’s global circulation of 94,000 industry professionals and high-net-worth individuals. In addition to benefiting from the reputation boost provided by our free-of-charge complimentary accolades, you will have access to a selection of optional promotional resources to truly capitalise on your moment of recognition. These accolades serve to inform your employees, stakeholders, and clients that you are firmly ahead of your peers.

So, if you believe that your business or a business you know of is worthy of recognition, please do not hesitate to submit a nomination by clicking the “VOTE NOW” link on this page.

Frequently Asked

When did LUXlife launch?


Today, LUXlife is one of AI Global Media’s most popular standalone publications but it launched as a bi-product of the luxury lifestyle sections from two of our flagship brands, Acquisition International & Wealth & Finance. In this respect, we’ve been active in the Lifestyle Sector since 2010; however, as demand for this type of coverage increased, we made the decision, in 2015, to separate the content and launch LUXlife, as an independent brand.

Who nominated me?


A large part of the nomination process is driven by LUXlife, we spend a great deal of time identifying potentially suitable candidates within their appropriate markets. A publisher-cast nomination doesn’t hold any more weight than a self, or third-party nomination, they all filter through to the research stage in the same manner. If you didn’t self-nominate the nomination will have come from either a third-party vote via our online voting form or, by us the publisher. We run the nomination process via our website entirely anonymously, prohibiting us to provide specific details. Tried and tested over the years, response rates are always higher this way. As we operate in this manner, we run a very rigorous filtering system and do not directly link the number of votes received with success. We store encrypted versions of the IP address associated with the nomination, allowing us to track unusual behaviour.

I’ve accepted the nomination, what happens next?


Once a nomination is accepted, the organisation will be moved on to our shortlist. Shortlisted parties are encouraged to submit supporting materials via our optional questionnaire. This is the perfect opportunity to put forward any specifics you’d like our judging panel to take into consideration before they undertake extensive research for up to 8 weeks.

What are the costs?


There are no obligatory costs in accepting a nomination or winning a LUXlife award. In fact, to demonstrate our commitment to this, all our winners are offered a free of charge promotional package. Our company policy will always remain, regardless of budget, our clients should always be able to leverage the value of the award and our seal of approval. We offer a variety of promotional opportunities to our winners. as we have an extensive network and we know, more than anyone, the wider business benefits from promoting industry awards. It’s important to highlight, all conversations pertaining commercial add-ons are conducted after winners are announced, so there is no possibility an organisation can influence any internal decisions, based on their appetite to spend on marketing; this remains our utmost concern.

Who makes the final decision?


We have an entirely unbiased internal panel. It consists of an international, collective of individuals, with backgrounds from a myriad of fields, such as business, economy, politics, media, journalism, history and education. The panel is led by a veteran academic leader with international pedagogic and coaching experience who is well versed in research, fact-checking and mediation; allowing the panel to operate with efficacy and dependability.

When’s the ceremony?


We do not gather our winners together to present the news. We’re a little bit too new-media for that! All announcements are made digitally, online and across our network. Hosting events and celebration dinners is an expense we’d rather our clients not entertain. We’d much rather keep the cost of our services and products low, so our winners can choose to spend money on marketing that generates real-world value.

So, what happens if I do win?


You get to select the level of coverage that suits you and we set to work to prepare all the relevant elements in time for our public announcement. Our main coverage takes the form of a digital winner’s magazine, but we also offer physical trophies, certificates and varied online packages offering social media exposure. We have a highly experienced editorial and production department who will guide you through this process and give you full control over your eventual coverage.

Why does your email domain differ from your website domain?


Because we send a large volume of emails, we separate our campaign email sends from our transactional ones. This structure helps to ensure a prompt and thorough response from one of our diligent team members. The sending email address will always be recognisable but please contact us via the address on this page if you have any concerns.
