New York, NY, June 27, 2011 – The American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE) announced PropertyCasualty360.com as a finalist for an Azbee award in the New or Relaunched Website category.
PropertyCasualty360.com is devoted to providing insurance news and analysis for today’s property & casualty professionals. The site delivers a 360 degree view of the industry by harnessing the expertise of five leading property & casualty brands: National Underwriter Property & Casualty, American Agent & Broker, Tech Decisions, Claims Magazine, and Florida Underwriter.
ASBPE is the professional association for editors and writers employed in the business, trade, and specialty press. Every year ASBPE hosts the Awards of Excellence competition, which recognizes the best in editorial, design, and online achievement. A panel of judges selected three finalists in the New or Relaunched Website category and will choose a winner on August 4, 2011 during the ASBPE National Editorial Conference.
“It’s truly an honor to be a finalist for this award,” said John Whelan, executive vice president of Summit Business Media. “There’s a lot of outstanding work being done in b-to-b journalism and we are grateful to have our Website chosen as among the best in the business.”
“This is a very exciting accomplishment for the entire PropertyCasualty360.com team,” said Eric Gilkey, editor of PropertyCasualty360.com. “When we set out on this portal strategy we expected traffic would increase because our audience was very clear that they needed an all-inclusive site like this. But growing our average page views by 90% over the five aggregated sites has simply been outstanding. This recognition by the ASBPE shows once again that we are definitely on the right track.”
“We are thrilled PropertyCasualty360.com has been recognized by the ASBPE,” said Chris Luke, group publisher at Summit Business Media. “The many months of planning and moving forward with a digital-first mentality are really starting to pay off.”
