The Pittsburgh business community is welcoming the inaugural Business Choice Awards, a program that recognizes the remarkable impact that area businesses have made in the past year in the Pittsburgh region.
Nominations in more than 80 categories are now being accepted at BusinessChoiceAwards.com, with voting by the public to follow. Winners from each category will be awarded on April 25, 2018, at the Pittsburgh Business Show. This awards program was created by DoYouKnowAGood.com, a 14-year-old Pittsburgh company which helps businesses establish and promote their reputation.
This award was designed for people to recognize their favorite Pittsburgh-area business by nominating them at BusinessChoiceAwards.com. Dozens of business categories ranging from software development to retail to real estate are available, and any business’ information can be entered into the nomination platform. Once a nominee is accepted, the business can fill out the entire profile, then continue to edit their profile in order to share their information with their customers, clients, and the public to gain votes. Voting ends in April.
The number of votes received will determine the winner in each category, and winners will be announced at the Business Choice Awards event on April 25, 2018, at 5:30 p.m. at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. The winners of each category will receive a Business Choice Awards plaque and 10 runner-up businesses will be recognized at the Show on the main stage, in the show program, and online throughout the year on the Business Choice Awards website and on social media.
Commercials promoting the Business Choice Awards featuring Darieth Chisolm are airing on KDKA-TV, The CW, and WDVE.
“I am excited for Pittsburgh businesses from all over the region to be able to participate in a business award that has been created by their peers, nominated by their peers, and voted on by the community,” said Linda Jo Thornberg, President of the Pittsburgh Business Show. “Pittsburgh businesses do a great job supporting each other and our communities. It is an honor to help support them with an event that recognizes these businesses at the Show,”
The public is invited to attend the Business Choice Awards on April 25 and then to meet and mingle afterwards with the winners at Pittsburgh’s largest networking event at 7:30 p.m. Discounted tickets are available here and allows attendees to also gain entrance to the two-day Pittsburgh Business Show on April 25 and 26, 2018. The Show will be held at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center and is a business-for-business trade show featuring hundreds of exhibitors from dozens of industries and networking events designed to connect attendees quickly to the people who can help their company succeed.
