Awarded by the Western Publishing Association (WPA), the MAGGIE Awards honor media and publishing professionals who exhibit dedication and excellence within the field. Featuring several different categories, the awards honor professionals in both print and digital mediums. Smart Meetings’ monthly publications help meeting professionals plan, coordinate, and host high-quality corporate events. Because of its dedication to setting the standards for the meeting industry, Smart Meetings won a MAGGIE Award in 2013 for Best Feature Article and was a finalist in four additional categories, including Best Interview or Profile/Trade, Best Editorial Layout and Best Single Editorial Illustration/Trade and Most Improved Publication/Trade, following a newly refreshed design last year.

As one of the WPA’s many tools and resources to improve and promote creativity and excellence within the publishing field, the MAGGIE Awards have honored achievements for more than 60 years. Each year, the WPA hosts the Annual MAGGIE Awards Banquet, one of the West’s most recognizable publishing events. The WPA also offers MAGGIE college student categories. Winners within these categories receive scholarships and grants in addition to their recognition at the MAGGIE Awards Banquet in the spring. Through its continued dedication to the advancement of the media publishing industry, the WPA provides the industry with a recognizable standard of excellence.
