Best of the Web

Thursday, March 12, 2015
Registration opens at 7:30 a.m.
Radisson Hotel Rochester Riverside

Nominate Now!
Deadline for nominations is Wednesday, January 7, 2015.

Every year the RBJ recognizes Rochester’s best business websites — and again this year, best use of mobile technology—at the Best of the Web Awards breakfast. The awards are given for sites determined to be Rochester’s best by a panel of judges.

All corporate and other business-related web sites and social media for organizations with headquarters in the nine-county Rochester region are eligible.

RBJ readers can help the judges make their choices by offering nominations for the 18th Best of the Web awards. Each nominated site will be evaluated for content, usefulness to businesspeople or for business applications, design quality and whether it will draw repeat visits. Best use of social media will be judged based on the company’s use of a social media strategy and its return on investment. 

In addition, you can nominate for the Digital Rochester's Business Transformation Award, which will be given to a Rochester-area firm that has transformed its business through the Web. Past finalists and winners have demonstrated business success gained by using the Web for strategic growth, harnessing cutting edge technology in website launches, mastering unique Web functionality or by making a significant impact on their organization through the exploration of online technologies.
