EMAP recognised for “reinventing the B2B business model”
EMAP, the digital B2B media and events company has been awarded nine prestigious awards for its content and events teams in the last week.
At the ‘Oscars’ of the media industry, the PPA Awards, EMAP won a record 3 top prizes: HSJintelligence was named ‘Digital Innovation of the Year (Business Media)’; HSJ won the Blue Ribbon award for ‘Business Media Brand of the Year’ and Eric Musgrave was crowned ‘Editor of the Year’ for Drapers.
The judges described HSJi as “successfully reinventing the B2B business model" and the judges "praised the clear proposition and strong operational structure, labelling it a truly intelligent and innovative product". They described HSJ as a "pioneering” brand that “that truly sets the pace in an increasingly competitive field".
EMAP was also a prominent winner at The Medical Journalists’ Association Awards, with Will Hazell winning ‘Young journalist of the year’ for HSJ and Shaun Lintern commended in ‘Specialist staff journalist of the year’, also for HSJ. At the same awards, Nursing Times editor Jenni Middleton received the coveted ‘Editor of the year’ prize.
These successes follow hot on the heels of The Conference Awards, where EMAP’s event team’s hard work was recognised with two well-deserved wins: The EMAP Conference Operations Team won ‘Best Conference Operations Team’ and The Construction News Awards received a mark of Excellence for the ‘Best Awards Event’ at the Conference Awards last week.
In another win for the HSJ earlier in the month, the HSJintelligence team scooped the award for ‘B2B Website of the Year’ at the AOP Awards.
