Thursday, October 21, 2021 at the Westdrift Hotel


The Manhattan Beach Chamber of Commerce created the Best of Manhattan Awards in 2013, with the intent of recognizing outstanding people, businesses, and philanthropic efforts in the City of Manhattan Beach. This year, we are returning to the stunning Westdrift Manhattan Beach Autograph Collection Hotel on Thursday, October 21, 2021, from 5:00 - 9:00 PM. We will be presenting 15 categories; 11 of the awards are open to the public for nomination/vote. In honor of the 80th anniversary of the Chamber of Commerce, we have founded a Hall of Fame Award. The founding recipient will be honored at the celebration on October 21, 2021. Mark your calendars; the best is yet to come!
