2021 Event Details

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

The 2021 invitation-only celebration will take place on Wednesday, September 22, 2021. 

The invitation was sent to winner main contacts in early August.

This year's event format is hybrid with the in-person celebration and ceremony being held at the Hilton Cleveland Downtown from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. 

As part of the in-person ticket, attendees will enjoy access to the live event at the Hilton, networking, entertainment, cocktail reception, heavy hors d'oeuvres, and dessert. The cost for an in-person ticket is $150 per person. 

Winning organizations also have the option to purchase a virtual ticket to access the live event remotely. The virtual event starts at 5:30 p.m. The cost for a virtual ticket is $350 per organization and includes access to the live streaming of the event for an unlimited number of employees. 

All winning organizations and sponsors will be recognized at this highly anticipated awards program.

What It Takes to Win

As we launch the NorthCoast 99 application every February, we also hold a complimentary What It Takes to Win event for applicants. We share what's new with the application and important information for completing it. We also discuss the Top-Performer and New Hire surveys that accompany the application.

Branding Your Win

ERC also hosts a complimentary Branding Your Win event. This is ideal for marketing, HR, and senior leaders from NorthCoast 99 organizations who are interested in learning ways to promote their win. The Branding Your Win event was held on July 21, 2021, and the branding kit was released concurrently to NC99 winners.
