TABPI releases “The Big 95” list of top b2b publications

CLEVELAND —Trade, Association and Business Publications International (TABPI) has released its first-ever “The Big 95” list, highlighting the 95 most acclaimed b2b / trade publications. The Big 95 list includes titles from United States, New Zealand, South Africa, Australia, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and Canada.

Paul J. Heney, TABPI President, explained that the lineup reflects data from the first 12 years of the Tabbie Awards, TABPI’s annual editorial and design awards competition.

“Honoring excellent design and editorial work is what the Tabbies is all about,” said Heney. “But we felt that it was also important to recognize consistency. There are many publications that excel year after year, and The Big 95 honors those editors and art directors who have taken pride in what they do on a continual basis.”

Topping the inaugural list is Massachusetts-based Computerworld. Another Massachusetts publication, Network World, placed second and EXHIBITOR Magazine, based in Rochester, Minn., was third. The rest of the top 10 features NCAA Champion, Modern Healthcare, INSTORE, Pensions & Investments, Professionally Speaking, Pizza Today and Civil Engineering.
