Rankings will be announced at the event, with videos on each company. The CEO from the No. 1 Coolest Place to Work will share his or her story.

Safety is our top priority. To maintain social distancing, we are limiting in-person attendees to a few representatives of each company on the Coolest List. For those who cannot attend in person, we will be streaming the event as a live webinar and we encourage companies to create a Watch Party (virtually, at your place of business, or at a local restaurant).

In-Person Tickets can be purchased by contacting CBJ Event Manager Ashley Moore at or (319) 750-3823.
