BUILDINGS Media recently received awards from two business-to-business (B2B) publishing organizations.
At the 67th Annual Maggie Awards produced by B2B Media Company on May 3, BUILDINGS was named a Best Trade Publication Gold Winner for its October 2018 issue focusing on building certifications, tenant amenities and net zero energy buildings.
The brand was also a Maggie award finalist in Best Feature Article for “Millennials and Gen Z in Facilities Management.” This article looked at the aging and retirement of current facilities managers, what organizations can do to attract and retain talent, and how millennials and Generation Z can become facilities managers.
The American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE) honored BUILDINGS at ASBPE’s 41st annual Azbee Awards of Excellence banquet on May 10. There, the brand was recognized for its Trade Show/Conference coverage from the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA)’s annual event for the show dailies and related articles the BUILDINGS team produced on-site. The coverage received a National Bronze award.
In April, BUILDINGS was recognized with a Regional Gold award for the Upper Midwest region. BUILDINGS also won a Regional Bronze award in the Enterprise News Story category for “Airport Evacuation: Lessons from a Passenger.”
For this article, BUILDINGS editor-in-chief Janelle Penny spoke with someone who was on a layover at Germany’s Frankfurt Airport when a screening error forced the evacuation of part of the airport.
“We focus on creating high-quality, engaging and informative content relevant to our readers in everything we do,” says Valerie Dennis Craven, director of editorial content for BUILDINGS. “The recognized content hits that mark. It’s an honor to be recognized for our work in the B2B trade publication space among quality work from our peers.”
The BUILDINGS team is constantly creating unique ways to reach its busy audience and launched a podcast and its weekly live chat, FM Friday. It also offers content creation services, as it did when working with BOMA for the award-winning show dailies.
