)-- The awards keep flowing for Insurance Business with three wins in the 2016 Tabbies Awards announced last week. A Bronze Medal for Best E-newsletter, Honorable Mention for Best B2B Website and a Top 25 placing for Best Single Issue add to Insurance Business’ nominations at the Azbee Awards, where the publication won a Bronze Medal for Best E-newsletter and ranked in the Top 10 nationally for Magazine of the Year and Website of the Year.
Presented by the Trade Association Business Publications International (TABPI) for the 13th year, the Tabbies encompasses 18 award categories open to English-language B2B publications around the world. This year over 400 editorial and design entries were received from across the globe.
Judges’ comments highlighted the strengths of Insurance Business’ online offering: “Easy to navigate, comprehensive B2B site with news, views and a forum. Good use of social media integration and multimedia as well as resources.”
On the print side, it was issue 3.11 featuring an interview with Lloyd’s global CEO Inga Beale that gained recognition in the Top 25 globally, a strong example of the caliber of industry leader that Insurance Business regularly speaks to and features in its pages.
The recognition extends past US borders, with Insurance Business also shortlisted for Website of the Year (Business) in the Publish Awards, organized by Publishers Australia.
“This is a great win for us,” said Mike Shipley, CEO of IB publisher Key Media.
“We’re an independent media company expanding around the world going head to head with some of the biggest names and being recognized as being among the best in the publishing business. Awards like these recognize the effort of our team and confirm our approach is achieving success.”
