We will update this page as information comes in. If you’re a finalist, check back often!

Legitimate Awards 4

Yes, We’re Having an In-Person Event!

We surveyed our finalists and the feedback was astounding! In fact, 91% of finalists who replied are on board with having an in-person event.

Your enthusiasm is encouraging, so we are moving forward with our annual event with a handful of modifications.

What about Covid?

Times are tough, and it’s time to fight back! Idaho businesses have recently taken a hit while massive corporations have flourished. We are Republican and Democrat, but we agree that Idaho businesses are not being well represented by those in power. So, we are foregoing our typical awards banquet to rally together and hopefully grab the attention of our elected officials.

Presenting…

The Idaho’s Best Business Rally

To comply with the Governor’s current order, we are changing things up a bit this year. Rather than our typical awards banquet, we are holding a rally to show our local and state leaders that Idaho companies can gather and operate their businesses safely and responsibly.

This is our form of protest for the restrictions currently placed on small business, and since it has a political component, we will remain in compliance with local and state ordinances.

Not our first choice, but like you, we’ve had to make drastic changes to our business. Idaho’s Best is no different.

Below are the details as we currently have them.

Presentation of Awards: You’ll receive the recognition you deserve, on stage and in person.

Who Should Come?

Seating is limited, especially this year. Many companies use this special night to celebrate their hard work and to reward employees.

Please respect our request of only buying tickets for finalist company employees and their spouses. Unfortunately this means no friends, neighbors, colleagues, clients, or kids.

Safety

Chateau des FleursProcedures: We’ve been working with the Southwest District Health to provide as safe of an event as we can.

Social Distancing: There will be plenty of space to spread out while waiting on the red carpet or getting your drinks. For those of you who thought the tables were too close at last year’s banquet, we’ll make sure there’s ample space between tables, just for you. 😉

Cleanliness: We will have staff dedicated to sanitizing high-touch areas and keeping things clean.

Face Masks: Yes, face masks are required for entry and while you are walking from one area to the next.

Arrival Times: You will be assigned a specific arrival time so that we can reduce crowd and line size upon entry.

What to Wear

Be sure to wear your rhinestone dresses or fancy pants! In other words, this will remain a black-tie event.

Also be sure to practice your smile for the red carpet photo shoot.
