NOTICE: We just finalized the seating with the venue and have a handful of tickets available. See below on how to purchase yours before they’re gone.

Are You a Finalist?

If you’re reading this page, then you are probably a finalist for the 2023 Idaho’s Best Awards.


Voter turnout increased by 70% this year, so it’s even more difficult to make it as far as you have. You should be proud of yourself and your organization. We are!

Come Celebrate With Us!

In your honor we are hosting the 2023 Idaho’s Best Awards Ceremony at JUMP in downtown Boise.

2022 Idaho's Best Business Awards Banquet

If you’ve attended in previous years, you already know… We don’t hold anything back! This year each ticket you purchase includes:

  • Red Carpet Photo
  • Beer and Wine Drink Ticket (for VIP’s)
  • Live, Clean Comedy Entertainment
  • Delicious Tasty Dessert
  • Door Prizes
  • Awards Presentation
  • On-Stage Photo Op when Receiving Award
  • And More!

What’s Different This Year?

You may have noticed that we are not including a dinner in this year’s awards. We’ve done this for two reasons:

  1. We want to keep prices as low as possible. Prices have gone up on just about everything over the past year and a dinner would add a significant cost. Without the dinner, we’ve actually lowered the price of the standard ticket by $10 this year!
  2. We want to allow room for more finalists to attend. We plan on replacing the round tables with more seats arranged in theater style.

With no dinner, we also have pushed back the start time. Perhaps you can go out to dinner as a team, then make your way over to the event for drinks and dessert!

Your Night to Attend

To accommodate more finalists, we’re holding the ceremony across two nights. This way we can avoid jamming everything into one ultra-long night of announcing winner after winner after winner.

Half the categories will be announced on Tuesday 4/18 and the rest on Wednesday 4/19. To see which night your category is being announced, see the table on the finalists page.

If for some reason you absolutely cannot make it on your assigned night, please let us know. Depending on how ticket sales progress, we may be able to change it.

Who Should Come?

Many companies use this special night to reward their hard working employees.

Seating is limited though. Please respect our request of only buying tickets for finalist company employees and their spouses. Unfortunately this means no family members, friends, neighbors, colleagues, clients, or kids.

What to Wear

It’s a special night and you deserve the recognition for making it as an Idaho’s Best Award Finalist. Go ahead, dress up in the best you’ve got!

Each year we see some fantastic gowns, suits, and even tuxedos. This will be a night to remember, for sure!

We couldn’t run these awards with a $0.00 entry fee for nominees without our generous Annual Sponsors. Note, sponsoring Idaho’s Best does not influence the final results. In other words, you cannot pay to win Idaho’s Best. These companies are simply generous and supportive of Idaho’s Best, win or not.
