BIBA scoops two wins at the Trade Association Forum Best Practice Awards

8th July 2016

The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) has won the Best Publication of the Year Award for its Manifesto as well as Website of the Year Award at the prestigious Trade Association Forum Best Practice Awards.

Speaking about the 2016 Manifesto document, which sets out the campaigning agenda for the Association, the judges said; “BIBA’s 2016 Manifesto is fresh and modern with a striking design.  The clear informative content in an easy to use format serves as a successful door opener and is a fantastic example of transparent lobbying – something which is increasingly important in today’s world.”

The BIBA website communicates and reinforces key messages to all audiences and in January 2016 was relaunched with a new design. This took a radically different approach  to audience engagement and a new search engine which ‘learns’ searches over time has helped contribute to the site being much easier to navigate.   The award recognises that the new site has additional functionality giving individuals and businesses a much improved experience with an easy to use, visually appealing site with current and relevant content.
BIBA Executive Director, Graeme Trudgill said: “It’s always fantastic to be recognised for the work we do and for these awards to come from our peers in the trade body sector means a lot  as it shows we are getting it right as an organisation.  Both the website and the Manifesto were launched through extensive member collaboration and both have been well received by our stakeholders and membership, which is the most important test.”

The awards, hosted by the Trade Association Forum, were presented at a ceremony in London on 6 July.
