January 31, 2021

In spite of the pandemic of 2020, Best of Las Vegas has experienced the largest number of businesses competing and the largest number of nominations received. In fact, nearly double compared to the 2019 contest.

Winners in the top three positions, in over 350 categories, were featured in the Las Vegas Review-Journal special section, in the winner’s magazine and online at BestofLasVegas.com.

This past spring, the decision was made to move the contest forward from a normal June start to an August start. For 2020, 4,686 companies and individuals made 15,453 nominations in over 350 categories. This is the largest version in the contests 39-year history.

Nominations were vetted and moved forward to the ballot. Voting was held September 1-30 and over 5.6 million votes were cast. Results were tabulated by Oregon based NERUS Strategies.

“We rely on our audience to supply us with the names of outstanding people, businesses, and establishments in each of over 350 categories,” said Chase Rankin, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.  Once the nominees are finalized, the world audience is asked to vote on one choice in each category. They are allowed to vote once every 24 hours during the voting period.

“This year we are proud to announce the official sponsor of this year’s Best of Las Vegas is NAQVI Injury Law,” continued Rankin.  “They join the Review-Journal in celebrating the many businesses, events, services, venues and most of all, the great people of Las Vegas.”

The audience nominated their favorites in Clark & Nye counties, by selecting one of 13 topic areas: Eat & Drink, Education, Entertainment, Health & Beauty, Home & Garden, Hotels & Casinos, Law, Living Local, Motors, Professional Services, Real Estate, Shopping and Things to Do. Nominations outside of Clark & Nye counties do not qualify for the balloting in the Las Vegas contest.

This year, there were over 350 sub-categories. To qualify for the ballot, the sub-category must have a minimum of five separate businesses that are competing for votes, hoping to finish in the top three sub-category positions.

“We’ve been fortunate to have won gold 11 times over the past four years. We are incredibly thankful for that recognition,” said Farhan Naqvi, owner and managing attorney for NAQVI Injury Law.“ This year, rather than competing against other businesses, we wanted to support area businesses. So many Las Vegas businesses deserve the spotlight. I have seen so many acts of generosity and kindness. This year we wanted to stand with those businesses and support the Review-Journal and all of the great things the Best of Las Vegas does. That’s why we decided not to run this year. We are incredibly honored to be the official sponsor.”

The winners are featured at BestofLasVegas.com. All winners are also honored in the 2020 Best of Las Vegas Magazine inside the home delivered Sunday Dec 13 editions, or by ordering online.
