SAUSALITO, Calif., May 22, 2019—Smart Meetings, the leading news source for meeting professionals, was honored for excellence in publishing and digital media in the 67th Annual Maggie Awards this month. Smart Meetings magazine was a finalist in three categories: Best Cover, Best Web Publication and Best Use of Social Media and won the top prize in the social media category.
Media from around the world were judged based on how well they used social media accounts to support their mission, in this case, “Inspiring brilliant experiences.” Judges also considered level of reader engagement, innovation and interface with the publication. Smart Meetings has built the most engaged social network in the industry across platforms with almost 50,000 followers on LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
“Our community of event professionals actively support each other, sharing tips and encouragement, and we are proud to help build that constructive conversation wherever it is taking place,” said Marin Bright, founder and CEO of Smart Meetings.
“These 51 winners all represent the best in publishing and digital media across consumer, trade, student and digital media. They are creative, thought-provoking and produce truthful, objective and reliable media for millions of readers,” reported Catherine Upton, Maggie awards chair.
