The American Business Awards will be presented at two awards events: the ABA's traditional banquet on Monday, June 17— in Chicago for the first time, after 10 years in New York; and the new product & technology awards event on Monday, September 16 in San Francisco.

More than 3,200 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. EtQ is nominated in the Company of the Year category for Computer Software, and the Fastest Growing Company of the Year category.
