Economic Impact Awards, a special publication and black-tie affair, has become the highlight of the business community's calendar.
Every year, we ask our readers to nominate companies and individuals for honors in categories including Lifetime Achievement in Business and Entrepreneur of the Year.
Each nominee is put through a stringent independent judging process. The top three finalists are profiled in the special publication in July, with the winner in each category announced at the annual banquet. The culmination of the evening is the announcement of the annual Lifetime Achievement in Business honoree, also selected by the outside judging panel.
