We have exciting news to share: Yesterday we won our first Neal Award, an honor given by the the ABM, the Association of Business Information and Media Companies. Often referred to as the Pulitzer Prizes of the business media, the Jesse H. Neal Awards acknowledge excellence in the editorial field of both online and print business media publications.
Our editorial team was recognized in the Best Subject-Related Package category for the Building Better Meetings feature, which covered tips, trends, and innovation in the meeting industry. We were also finalists in the categories of Best Web Site, Best Cross-Platform Package for Event Innovators 2012, and Best News Coverage for our look at how Hurricane Sandy impacted the event industry.
“Led by editor in chief Chad Kaydo and executive editor Anna Sekula, our editorial team has done outstanding work, and I could not be more proud,” BizBash C.E.O. and founder David Adler said. “I am thrilled to see the high quality of work produced by our editorial team recognized in such a prestigious format.”
And in case you missed our news earlier this week, Chad Kaydo will be leaving his position as editor in chief, and, starting March 18, Anna Sekula will run editorial operations as executive editor.
