The USA Biz Awards, or “WirtschaftsOskars,” are granted every year to recognize outstanding achievements by Austrian companies in the U.S. market. This year’s winners, assessed by the Austrian Trade Commission in Los Angeles, are Aichelin, ETM, Frequentis, RIEGL, Stratodesk, and ViewAR

The seventh USA Biz Awards ceremony was held concurrently with the Film “Oscars” night on February 26, 2017, at the residence of the Austrian Consul General in Los Angeles.
