The Nightclub & Bar Awards are unique in their credibility as the premier industry recognition program. Venue owners, operators and managers, as well as suppliers, vendors and other industry members eager to recognize excellence in on-premise concepts, programs, talent and professionalism are invited to submit entries via nightclubandbarawards.com. Qualifying entries are then put before an expert judging panel composed of top consultants, developers, educators, writers, editors and trainers in the industry. The judges rank their first, second and third choices for each category they judge, and a calculation is applied to identify the Finalists, and ultimately, the Winners, based on the ballots.
Now in its second year, the Nightclub & Bar Awards once again honor outstanding operators across the industry from venues large and small, located in diverse markets. New this year is a segment specifically for Las Vegas Nightclubs, created to reflect the unique nature of that market. Las Vegas Nightclubs join the Bar and Nightclub categories. Modern Line Furniture is the sponsor of the Nightclub category.
Finalists and Winners will be highlighted in Nightclub & Bar media properties, and Winners will be celebrated at the Welcome Kick-off Party at Caesars Palace on Monday, March 7 during the Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas.
