"In today's B2B industry, editors are expected to not only create a top-notch print product, but also update their Web site and social media platforms around the clock," stated representatives from the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE). "This contest recognizes print and online editors, writers, and designers for their hard work and commitment to excellence in B2B journalism."
Physicians Practice, which provides practice management advice to physicians across the United States through an innovative multi-media platform, was honored with both regional and national awards for its excellence in coordinating print and digital media to provide quality content to medical practices.
"We're extremely honored by ASBPE's acknowledgement of our team's efforts in providing American physicians with the guidance they need to navigate an increasingly complex and challenging business climate," said Bob Keaveney, editorial director of Physicians Practice. "I'm especially pleased by the national award recognizing our coverage of the Medical Group Management Association's annual convention. This event is crucial for our audience, and ASBPE's award recognizes that no publication covered it more effectively."
The ASBPE Awards of Excellence program is one of the most competitive for business-to-business, trade, association, and professional publications.
