The EPIC Awards celebrates those businesses and people who are doing great things in the business community by being Entrepreneurial, Progressive, Innovative and Collaborative.
Seven categories of awards recognize businesses and individuals supporting the community, demonstrating growth, finding ways to innovate, and are working with others as mentors and collaborators.
Anticipation builds for the annual EPIC Awards celebration as the field of nominees is narrowed—keeping finalists and attendees on the edge of their seats as the envelops are opened and award recipients are finally announced from the podium during an Oscar-styled reveal at this premier Chamber event.
Mark Your Calendars!
The 2016 EPIC Awards will be moving to November 2 this year and will be hosted from 5:30 – 8:00 p.m. at New Vintage Place, 889 Broadway Ave. NW.
Stay tuned this summer for nomination details and deadlines…
Any Grand Rapids Are Chamber member in good standing who has reached their one year anniversary with us is eligible to be nominated for an EPIC Award, and all finalists are highlighted during the celebratory awards dinner.
Congratulations to all our 2015 EPIC Awards finalists and recipients!
