BALI’S BEST RESTAURANTS, BARS, AND CAFES 2015, CROWNED

BRBCA 2015 | Written By, Life on the Island | October 19th, 2015

A whopping total of 150 restaurants registered to compete for 20 titles in the NOW! Bali Best Restaurant, Bar, and CaféAwards (BRBCA) 2015. Despite only being in its 2nd year, more than 300,000 people visited the NOW! Bali Best Restaurant, Bar & Cafe Awards 2015 website to vote for these 150 participating venues, with over 350,000 votes submitted!

The BRBCA began in 2014 with the vision of eliminating the perception of ‘awarder bias’ associated with other awards ceremonies. To join the awards, restaurants, bars and cafés are able to register for free online, into their appropriate categories, and are not hand-picked or nominated by a board.

Afterwards, NOW! Bali readers and fans of restaurants go online and vote for their favourite venues. By doing this, the awards ceremony promotes the idea that the ‘customer is king’ and thus creates a fierce yet transparent competition within the Bali food and beverage industry. Votes are then validated (email validation) at the end of voting session – with the help of NOW! Bali’s strategic partners Grivy (www.grivy.com) – therefore the final results are real consumers.

The whole BRBCA campaign was made possible by the support of Emirates Airlines, who gave 2 return flights to Europe being used as an award for one of the many voters and also to one of the participants at the awards night.
