How We Choose Honorees
Honorees named to the BizBash Hall of Fame are chosen by the BizBash executive committee for their work, accomplishments, and contributions to the industry. There is no nomination process. Instead, BizBash reaches out to advisers for suggestions as well as considers suggestions from BizBash staff before making final decisions. Criteria include notable long-term contributions to the event industry, visionary leadership, and a demonstrated passion for the industry. 

Honorees are drawn from across the spectrum of the event industry and have included event planners, designers, and producers; caterers; academics and journalists; nonprofit organizations; and destination marketing organizations. 

BizBash has hosted Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, South Florida, Southern California, Toronto, and Boston.
Special thank you to our Awards Sponsor Cristaux for providing the beautiful awards our honorees take home.
