Each year, KCIC teams with some of the area’s most dynamic organizations to recognize the members of our community who make Kansas City a stronger, better place.


Each year, KCIC recognizes individuals and companies that have made outstanding contributions to the economic strength of Kansas City’s industrial areas through the Brick-by-Brick Awards. During the past 30 years, KCIC has bestowed nearly 500 Brick-by-Brick Awards. Considerations for nominations include capital improvements, job creation, improved infrastructure or relocating or expanding in one of the city’s industrial areas.

Nominations are now open for the 2023 Brick-by-Brick Awards.  Winners will be recognized at an event on April 20, 2023. Stay tuned for more information on sponsorships and tickets.
