This year’s Icons & Phenoms will take on a different look than past versions.

For the first time, SC Biz News will recognize influencers from across South Carolina.

The event, to be held Thursday, July 21, at the Doubletree by Hilton Columbia, will shine the spotlight on established leaders shaping their regions while making time to give back to the community, and rising stars who are already making an impact.

Six Icons and six Phenoms will be honored from each of three regions: Upstate, Midlands and Coastal counties. From these 36 honorees, one Icon and one Phenom will be named as the top honoree.

Twelve Icons and 12 Phenoms were honored last year.
