Best of 2020 Award

Posted by Alyssa Van Aman on January 19, 2021

Copy of Best of Award Announcement - Social (2)Today, we officially announced the winners of our annual Best of Award which has been given to members of The Bash who received 2 or more reviews of 4 stars or higher for events in 2020.

2020 Award Criteria

We know that 2020 was a challenging year for vendors. As a result of many events being rescheduled or postponed, we announced in October that we would reduce the criteria for winning the Best of 2020 Award in half (from 4 reviews to 2 reviews).

Before making this important decision, we evaluated what other brands in the industry were doing with their award criteria and extensively reviewed past and current data on our award winners. We wanted to take into consideration the impact that COVID-19 has had on events, but also wanted to ensure the updated criteria didn't undermine the intention and exclusivity of the award.

2020 Winners

All winning members have been notified via email and we have already distributed the award to profile pages. If you didn't receive the award, and you have pending reviews or bookings from 2020, please log in to your Member Control Panel to confirm the bookings or contact past clients. If you need help or have questions about the award, feel free to contact us at

If you did not receive the 2020 award, know that many party planners fully understand that 2020 was a year of uncertainty with COVID-19 impacting events nationwide. We look forward to 2021 and the many safe celebrations that are to come.

How to Win in 2021

For any bookings you receive from The Bash, make sure you are confirming them on the site so your clients can leave you a verified review after the event.

Remember, you can send a single 'review reminder' email to your client for a confirmed booking through the 'Leads' tab in your Control Panel or you can contact us and we can send the review reminder on your behalf. Learn more about how to request reviews on The Bash.
