2018 Best Of Business (BOB) Awards

2018 Best Of Business (BOB) Awards

Recognizing the Best of the Best in Coastal Virginia’s Business Community


Who can I trust for my company’s IT needs? What are my options for networking? Where should I take my client for lunch? As local professionals and business owners, you’ve got a lot of questions about making yourself and your business the best it can be. The BOB Awards were created to provide some answers along the way.

In our second annual BOB (Best Of Business) Awards, we highlight services that companies use and trust to perform day-to-day operations, businesses excelling in their industries, venues making meetings and networking events effective, top options for business travel, outstanding professional development programs and individuals exuding professionalism, innovation and influence throughout their companies and communities.

BOB Awards

How were the BOB Awards chosen?

Through a nomination process from April 3–24, individuals within Coastal Virginia’s business community were invited to nominate businesses in any of the 85 subcategories featured in the contest. The businesses with the most nominations moved on to the voting round, held April 25–May 25, where individuals could vote as often as once per day in any subcategory. The businesses with the most votes are featured by ranking (gold, silver, bronze).
