NEW YORK, April 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Aviation Week Network, serving the global aviation, aerospace and defense industries, today announced it has been honored as the best business-to-business media brand in the Jesse H. Neal National Business Journalism Awards, the business-to-business media equivalent of the Pulitzer Prizes. This category recognizes Aviation Week's overall excellence and its breath of offerings across all content platforms to serve its audience. Aviation Week also won the Grand Neal, which honors the most outstanding entry from among the winners in all categories.
Aviation Week celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2016. Over the years, Aviation Week has expanded into conferences, data and analytics. In its 100th anniversary year, Aviation Week and Boeing -- which also celebrated its centenary -- created a comprehensive online, searchable archive of the magazine's articles, pictures and advertisements.
Greg Hamilton, President, Aviation Week Network said, "The Neal Awards are the most prestigious editorial honors in the field of specialized journalism. We're very proud of the editorial, art and production team, who are committed to serve the essential and complex aviation and aerospace community with trusted and actionable information it needs to succeed."
"We are thrilled to win this award," added Joe Anselmo, Aviation Week's Editor-in-Chief. "Being recognized as tops in overall editorial excellence among all U.S. business-to-business information providers is an amazing honor."
The Jesse H. Neal Awards were created by Connectiv in 1955 to recognize and reward editorial excellence in business publications. They are named after Connectiv's first managing director, who remained active in promoting the B2B industry throughout his life.
Connectiv, a division of SIIA, is the global business information association that accelerates innovation for leading and emerging content, data and technology companies.
The Neal Awards were presented in ceremonies in New York on March 31.
