Announcing the Finalists for the First National BizBash Event Style Awards

The winners of the first national Event Style Awards will be announced at the BizBash New York IdeaFest in October.

Expanding what once honored the best in the event and meeting industry by region, BizBash is bringing back the Event Style Awards as a national program. And after nearly 1,000 entries from across North America, the judges have narrowed each category down to the finalists. The winners will be announced at the BizBash IdeaFest New York on October 30 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center; more information on how to attend the expo and the award ceremony can be found here.
