okc.BIZ Best of Business 2017 Honorees Announced


Oklahoma City, OK – okc.BIZ is proud to announce this year’s honorees for 2017 Best of Business. Voting for the tenth annual okc.BIZ 2017 Best of Business awards presented by Comtech Design Print & Mail has ended and the top five honorees in 25 categories has been determined. This list below is in alphabetical order.

The okc.BIZ Best of Business program recognizes local businesses chosen by their peers.

A plumber needs a banker and an architect needs an accountant. Best of Business offers business owners and managers an opportunity to voice their opinion on who they choose for preferred business-to-business partners. Votes were cast online July 2016 through January 25, 2017 for their favorite suppliers and business partners.

All honorees will be recognized and those receiving the most votes cast from among their peers in each category receive special recognition on stage at the March 16, 2017 awards luncheon. This year’s event will be held at the Embassy Suites Downtown Medical District. We are excited to announce Mark Kranenburg, airports director for Oklahoma City Department of Airports, will be our keynote speaker. Find event and ticket information at  www.gazettetickets.com.
