The Downtown Spokane Partnership (DSP) announces the upcoming recognition of the 2024 Best in BID Award winners during its Annual Meeting on February 22 at the Montvale Event Center. The second annual Best in BID Awards are a celebration of exceptional businesses and organizations within the Downtown Spokane Business Improvement District (BID) as selected by community nomination and vote. Representatives from category winners will be present at the meeting to accept their award.
Throughout the month of January, the general public had the opportunity to nominate and participate in the voting process across various categories. The contest garnered notable attention on social media platforms, making each category a sought-after title for businesses throughout the 80-square blocks the BID comprises in the core of downtown Spokane.
“The Best in BID Awards recognizes outstanding businesses from downtown’s incredible mix of restaurants, shops and hospitality services,” said Emilie Cameron, President & CEO of the DSP. “These are the businesses that strive every day to provide an unparalleled taste or experience for the customers and neighbors that nominated and selected them. We’re honored to be able to recognize them and thank them for choosing downtown.”
