The Pittsburgh business community is welcoming the Business Choice Awards, a program that recognizes the remarkable impact that area businesses have made in the past year in the Pittsburgh region. Join us at this one-of-a-kind event.
Nominations in more than 80 categories will be accepted at BusinessChoiceAwards, starting on January 1st, 2019 with voting by the public to follow. Winners from each category will be awarded on May 14, 2019, at the Pittsburgh Business Show. This awards program was created by DoYouKnowAGood.com, a 15-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 will begin on March 1st, 2019 and ends on May 1, 2019.
The number of votes received will determine the winner in each category, and winners will be announced at the Business Choice Awards event on May 14, 2018, at 12:00 p.m. at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.
The winners of each category will receive a Business Choice Awards plaque and 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.
“I want to thank both of you for each of the parts you played in the networking event last evening. I feel that it was a successful event and many business cards were exchanged. I am a small woman-owned, minority certified business and appreciate the effort you put into these events to give exposure to these type of businesses. You were both so gracious in introducing me to other attendees that were a great source for networking. I had a great time and felt that it was a productive evening for me as well as others. My son, Nickolas, also enjoyed himself. Looking forward to seeing both of you again, soon.”

The Pittsburgh Business Show was greatly beneficial for Junior Achievement of Western PA. Not only where we able to support our existing partners, but we were also able to meet with new partners and create potential relationships with them. We’re involved with a new project, and with the connections that we made at the Pittsburgh Business Show, the organization is ready to move ahead on it. Additionally, we also raised additional funds for our school programs, and we’re grateful for all of the support that we received.

Sometimes it can be difficult to build and increase brand awareness for small and medium sized businesses. Expanding your client base, recruiting new talent, and finding innovative ways to grow are challenges that all business professionals face. The Pittsburgh Business Show brings so many talented business professionals and experts together that it’s impossible to leave without new ideas and a larger professional network. I thoroughly enjoyed participating in The Pittsburgh Business Show and was amazed by the professional opportunities available to participants and vendors alike!

Landon and Acosta, LLC, benefited greatly from exhibiting at the Pittsburgh Business Show. We are business brokers, and the show was a fantastic opportunity to meet business owners that were interested in growing their businesses by making strategic acquisitions, or selling their business to cash out and retire.

“The two days I spent as an exhibitor at the First Annual Pittsburgh Business Show were great. I met a lot of people from all types of businesses, made new connections and grew my network, exchanged ideas with fellow business owners, and was inspired by the many great speakers who appeared during the event. If this first year is an indication of what’s to come in future installments, then this event is bound to become a staple in the Pittsburgh business community.”

“Our company attended the Pittsburgh Business Show back in April as a vendor and a presenting sponsor. We were so excited to get involved with this event from the very beginning and it turned out to be a huge success for us. It was so great to be able to meet so many other businesses at the show, both from foot traffic coming through the doors and also from hanging out with all of the other vendors. Our staff who attended was also able to get so much from the speaker presentations that took place throughout both days of the show. This was an excellent opportunity to shine a spotlight on our company, meet hundreds of new prospects, and educate other businesses about the importance of digital marketing. For this being the first year of the Pittsburgh Business Show, I would say that it was a huge success. Of course, we expect this show to grow in size over the years and we look forward to being a part of this event for years to come.”
