Paul J. Heney, TABPI President, said that B2B journalism continues to thrive in what has been a difficult few years for publishing companies. “Even before the pandemic, we’ve seen a lot of turbulence in both B2B publishers and publishing associations. The last decade has been a tough one to navigate with the Internet becoming a preferred source for many readers. But each year, the editorial and design work submitted for the Tabbies continues to show the astonishing journalism that continues to happen in this space,” Heney said. “Around the world, editors and designers are doing quality work, meaningful to the industries they serve — and we’re proud to help spotlight it.”
