The OpRisk North America 2015 conference was recognised at the Professional Publishers Association’s second annual Connect Awards, winning the prestigious award for Conference of the Year (300+ delegates).
The Professional Publishers Association’s Connect Awards celebrate and promote the role of events within the publishing sector. This year’s winners were revealed at a fabulous Winter Wonderland-themed black tie ceremony on 7 December.
In recognising OpRisk North America’s achievement the judges commented that: “OpRisk North America demonstrated robust growth and profitability, and our judges were particularly impressed with the level of industry research that underpinned these achievements. This flagship event was brilliantly executed, genuinely innovative, and received great feedback. In the words of one judge, a fantastic team effort and a thoroughly deserved winner.”
Incisive Media was also shortlisted in the categories Awards Event of the Year (UK Pensions Awards) and Team of the Year (Retail Investment Team).
The PPA represents around 220 companies, ranging from consumer magazine publishers to business-to-business data and information providers, customer magazine publishers and smaller independent companies. Live events are a vital part of the mix for today’s publishers and the PPA Connect brand offers support to PPA members through feedback forums, networking events, public affairs activity and an annual conference.
