Arc network companies, Agriconnect and Incisive Media, receive four shortlist nods at the 2023 AOP Digital Publishing Awards

The Arc network has made the shortlist in four categories at the 2023 AOP Digital Publishing Awards - including employer of the year, for Incisive Media, and best creative solutions/content marketing campaign, for Agriconnect.

The AOP Awards recognise excellence in digital publishing and Incisive Media has strong previous form, including a record five wins in the blue riband B2B publisher category.  Continuing this success, the team also is shortlisted for the B2B editor of the year – for Investment Week editor James Baxter-Derrington - B2B, brand of the year for BusinessGreen, and the hotly-contested employer of the year category, which the business previously won in 2021.

Agriconnect made the running in the best creative solutions/content marketing campaign for 24 Hours in Farming, its innovative digital marketing and social media influencer campaign.

Arc network is a fast-growing B2B media and events business with global operations across the financial, agriculture, food, sustainability, HR and education sectors.

Investment Week is a flagship financial brand and is recognised for its engaging editorial style under Baxter-Derrington’s leadership. BusinessGreen celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2022, and is at the beating heart of the green economy. Farmers Guardian, celebrating its 179th birthday in 2023, is the long-established champion of the UK agricultural sector.

Arc’s success on the AOP awards shortlist follows hot on the heels of the 2023 PPA awards shortlist, where the business is cited in a record five categories including B2B editor, brand and event of the year.

“We are delighted for this recognition from our peers,” said Arc CEO, Europe Jonathon Whiteley. “The range of categories we are shortlisted in demonstrates how much we are doing across the business to develop our products for users and clients, and this is a testament to the innovation and hard work of our people.”

Arc network companies hit shortlist record for the 2023 PPA awards

Arc network has enjoyed a strong showing in the 2023 PPA Awards shortlist – with five nominations from five entries, a record achievement for the business.

Sustainability flagship BusinessGreen enjoyed a particularly strong showing, with shortlist nominations in the B2B media brand, B2B editor and B2B event of the year categories, the latter for the ground-breaking Net Zero Festival.

Making a comeback to the shortlist is Farmers Guardian with 24 Hours In Farming, a B2B2C campaign at the cutting edge of digital and social influencer marketing.

The shortlist is rounded off with a nod in the employer of the year category for Incisive Media, reflecting the business’s focus on diversity and inclusivity and the increasing demand of the business’s staff to deliver on its sustainability and employee wellbeing goals.

Arc network is a fast-growing B2B media and events business with global operations across multiple sectors.

BusinessGreen celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2022, and is at the beating heart of the green economy and the net zero transition, led by editor in chief James Murray. James is namechecked as “an amazing communicator” and “very highly respected”.

Farmers Guardian, celebrating its 179th birthday in 2023, is the long-established champion of the UK agricultural sector. The brand is part of a B2B behemoth that also owns the LAMMA show and British Farming Awards, of Clarkson’s Farm fame.

“We are delighted to be shortlisted at these awards again this year, and for this recognition from our peers,” said Arc Europe CEO Jonathon Whiteley. “I’m doubly proud to be able to include Farmers Guardian among our shortlisted entries, plus of course BusinessGreen.

“We work incredibly hard to ensure Incisive is a good and fair employer, and I’m humbled for us to be nominated in the employer of the year category.”

Incisive Media has strong form at the PPA Awards. The business has won the innovation of the year category twice out of the last three years with its Delta and Nexus products, and took B2B event of the year honours in 2022 with its Sustainable Investment Festival.
