Below is a continually updated list of the nominees as we know them so far; refresh for updates.

Sheeran’s own got a nod for Best Pop Vocal Album and Pharrell’s G I R L got a nomination for Best Urban Contemporary Album. Sheeran didn’t act too surprised, however, because he admitted that he had “peeked” at the results just before officially announcing them.

Save The Date! EOTM Awards Announce Date & City Change – Entrepreneurs headed to Las Vegas

EOTM Awards announce exciting strategic plans to step their award show up a notch, spot lighting entrepreneurs around the globe that are changing the world.

 


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

EPRLog (Press Release)Jul. 8, 2014LAS VEGASThe EOTM “Entrepreneurs On The Move” Awards will come later than originally planned, due to deadlines and venue changes. The  overwhelming response and massive overflow of nominees and corporate interest was also taken in consideration.

The EOTM Awards committee will be moving their festivities from early November 2, 2014 to March 1, 2015, and will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada. “Its a necessity so we can secure a venue large enough to handle the throngs expected to attend, said Carla Simpson,” president of the organization. “Volume is definitely a good problem to have, so we are geeked,” Simpson said.

The festivities launch February 27, 2015 through March 1, 2015. Organizers of the three-day event also released another nugget for their 2nd year and beyond.

The awards show will also launch a mini tour, Nevada in 2015, Atlanta, Georgia in 2016 and New York in 2017.

“In an effort to honor entrepreneurs everywhere we decided for the first 4 years, taking our show to major markets where entrepreneurs are thriving the most. Cities that topped the list were Los Angeles, New York, Las Vegas and Atlanta. What better way to pay homage to entrepreneurs that are doing their part, changing our world for the better,” Simpson added.

“The extravaganza is likely to draw up to 1000 people to the main awards show and thousands more to parties around Las Vegas. Combine that crowd with an enormous stage the event will require and the number of potential venues shrinks quickly, even in Vegas. Many venues around the city can handle the crowd, but it’s already spoken for over the originally scheduled weekend when we originally planned to roll out our red carpet,” Simpson said.

EOTM Media has announced that the next EOTM Awards ceremony will broadcast live on March 1, 2015
