2019 Event Recap


The NorthCoast 99 Awards Event is widely regarded as one of Northeast Ohio's best business events of the year.

The 2019 invitation-only celebration took place on September 11 at the Hilton Cleveland Downtown, and the theme was The Hero Within.

Our keynote speaker was Josh Sundquist: Paralympian, motivational speaker, and best-selling author.

Every winning company received two complimentary tickets to the event. Each additional ticket was $205. More than 800 guests attended.

For 2020 event questions, please contact Laura Prcela at ERC. 

"Such a high-energy, high-quality production sends a great message to the community."
