For the second year running, CEDIA has won at the prestigious Best Practice Awards 2016, hosted by The Trade Association Forum (TAF). CEDIA’s quarterly publication, Communicates, was awarded Magazine of the Year for its excellence in engaging, educating and promoting the industry to its members and the wider community.
Supported by the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills, the TAF Best Practice Awards rewards and promotes best practice amongst trade associations in the UK. On Wednesday 6th July 2016, the CEDIA team, led by Wendy Griffiths, CEDIA EMEA’s Executive Director, was presented Magazine of the Year for CEDIA Communicates in front of over 300 guests at the spectacular venue, 8 Northumberland Avenue, London.
Launched in 2005, CEDIA Communicates began as a four-page newsletter focusing solely on association news. Just over 10-years later, it has transformed into a fully-fledged magazine that covers both inward and outward facing content. A must read for professionals in the home technology industry, the magazine is distributed quarterly in winter, spring, summer and autumn.
Communicates allows CEDIA to engage with its members and the wider industry on a personal yet educational platform. Using a structured editorial plan each quarter, the magazine includes range of topical industry news, trends and advice to help members grow their businesses.
“After winning Best Publication of the Year for the CEDIA Awards Yearbook at last year’s TAF Awards, we are elated to be awarded Magazine of the Year at this year’s ceremony,” comments Wendy. “CEDIA Communicates has developed magnificently over the last ten years and we are thrilled that the commitment and time spent on each issue has been recognised by TAF. At CEDIA, we strive for excellence in everything we do, and that includes creating the best content for each issue. We will continue to provide our members and the industry with award winning content each quarter.”
