No! Our cohorts are the top 50 second-stagers in the state – you won! There will be no other winners announced leading up to February, if you’re in the top 50 that’s the highest designation you can get!

As many as you want!! We’ve had folks come solo, only use their 2 comp tickets, or bring 20 team members (and everything in between!). There is no right or wrong way to attend the celebration – but the more the merrier! However, we ask that only the highest ranking official accept the award on stage. But your team and guests can cheer you on from the audience! (Yes, you’ll all be seated together.)

Dress code for the event is semi-formal, black tie optional. You’ll have a bit of everything, but most women are in pant suits/cocktail dresses and most men are in suit and ties. 

Yes! Tickets will be open until a week prior to the event (unless sold out sooner).  

During the awards ceremony, you’ll be called to the state to accept your award. Our event sponsors will introduce the highest-ranking-official accepting the award and a bit about the company. There will be a photo opp center stage and another backstage. With 50 companies to celebrate, we don’t have much extra time – so no talking points/speech is necessary. But, we promise your company will have it’s time to shine!
