  • The Event

    The annual NorthCoast 99 awards event recognizes all 99 award-winning organizations through a night of entertainment, internationally-known keynote speakers, and inspiring stories of great workplaces. The event is by invitation only and has twice been named the 'Best Corporate Event' by CBC Magazine.

    Event Details


    The 2016 event was held on September 22 at Executive Caterers at Landerhaven in Mayfield Heights. The event's theme was legacy: leaving something better than how you found it. The 2016 NorthCoast 99 lithograph represented this theme by portraying a figure running forward. The figure depicts energy, strength, and forward movement.

    All winning organizations will receive their custom and framed lithograph via hand delivery, from an ERC representative.
