Dear Participants,


As Chair of the Florida’s BEST 2016 Awards Program, and on behalf of the Builders Association of South Florida (BASF), I’d like to thank you for your interest in being a part of this landmark event. We will gather to celebrate the return of the program to our communities and will draw professionals from leading industries such as developers, contractors, architects, interior designers, landscape architects, marketing specialists, mortgage brokers, real estate brokers law firms and many more. It will showcase products and personal achievements, and to participate all you have to do is complete the Call for Entry.

Specialty judges will evaluate the competition for various categories and price points. Winners will be announced and celebrated at the Gala Awards on November 5th, 2016 presented at Jungle Island at Watson Island in Miami, Florida. It will be a black tie gala including dinner, dancing, a silent auction and a state of the art, multimedia awards presentation. Over 700 guests engaged in building our communities have attended our previous galas and we are looking forward to your participation in this benchmark occasion. 

Before closing, I’d like to thank you for your consideration and participation in our Awards Program. As a leader of our communities, you have the vision, the knowledge, the wherewithal and the experience to pave our way into the future. A truly great asset today and tomorrow, and our cities could not have accomplished what they have without your support and leadership.

Thank you and good luck to all.
