2019 Best of Alaska Business

#BOAB2019 Update

Announcing our Summer Party’s special musical guest:

Blackwater Railroad Company is a folk-rock group built from diametrically opposed backgrounds, coincidentally brought together by love of music and Alaska. Like good moonshine, this group was formed in a dark basement, in the middle of winter, and consistently delivers warm, raucous evenings.

FAQ

How do you choose the categories?

Each year, the Alaska Business editorial and management teams evaluate our list of categories for the survey. We consider current business and industry trends and the prior year’s data to refine the category list. We may add a new category if an exciting new business or trend comes to our attention or we may eliminate a category that is no longer applicable to you, our readers. We always take into account your feedback and we always appreciate hearing about categories you’d like to see added or nixed.

Does advertising influence the contest?

The readers’ choice survey is managed by our editorial department and is completely separate from advertising. The readers’ choice survey has no relationship with or effect on advertising, and vice versa.

Can a business or organization be a finalist if it’s located outside of the magazine’s coverage area?

In order to qualify as a finalist in the survey, the business or organization must have a physical presence within Alaska.

When will the winners be announced?

The 2019 winners are listed in the Best of Alaska Business special section in the July 2019 edition of the magazine, published July 1.
