Earlier today, BizBash announced the winners of the coveted 2020 BizBash Event Style Awards, Powered by MeetingPlay, through an interactive virtual event for the books. Honoring the best meeting and event ideas, strategies, products and technology in North America and beyond, the awards were given to entries that demonstrated innovation and creativity, quality of execution, effectiveness and an influential impact on the industry. The judging panel included BizBash's National Advisory Board as well as BizBash editors, who took to the polls to cast their vote in over 100 categories that spanned virtual and live experiences—plus, back by popular demand, BizBash readers cast their own vote in five "People's Choice" categories. (The rules for the Event Style Awards can be found here.)
This year's National Advisory Board judges included Jaclyn Bernstein, Raymond Brown, Mia Choi, Chris Drury, Jill Drury, Rachel Langley, Candace Montgomery, Kate Patay, Rishi Patel, Ingrid Roman, Nancy Shaffer and Tony Schubert.
