Taking place on Wednesday 22 March at the Hilton Hotel, Glasgow, the event will celebrate the entrepreneurial exporting achievements of businesses across Scotland, as part of a full 12 month international trade campaign.
So far entrants have a total turnover of approx £444m (£302m export turnover).
Entries will close on 13 January.
International trade remains high on the Scottish Government’s economic growth agenda and BQ's campaign and awards are about recognising the excellence in those companies who sell their products, services and expertise in overseas markets.
Bryan Hoare, managing director of BQ, said: "We are delighted with the level of entrants so far for the HSBC Scottish Export Awards 2017, in association with Scottish Enterprise. There is still time for more businesses and entrepreneurs to enter and join us in celebrating some of Scotland’s most successful exporters."
