ATG Media, parent company of Antiques Trade Gazette has been named as one of the Top 100 companies in Europe in the Red Herring Awards, which celebrate innovation and technology in business.
Red Herring, a global media company that
tracks the latest innovations and publishes a related online news
service, announced the awards at a ceremony in Amsterdam after
drawing up a shortlist from hundreds of firms across Europe.
"Choosing the companies with the strongest
potential was by no means a small feat," said Alex Vieux, publisher
and CEO of Red Herring. "We believe ATG Media embodies the vision,
drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial
venture. ATG Media should be proud of its accomplishment, as the
competition was the strongest it has ever been."
Red Herring's editorial staff evaluated the
companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as
financial performance, technology innovation, management quality,
strategy and market penetration, to find the most promising new
business models in Europe.
ATG Media managing director Anne Somers, pictured here receiving

Europe and I am delighted that our success in evolving to meet the
needs and expectations of a fast-changing market has been
recognised in such elevated company."
