Washington, D.C. (March 23, 2015)—The Atlantic and its events division, AtlanticLIVE, are being honored in five categories—the most of any publisher—by the 2015 Folio: FAME Awards. On the heels of a record year for revenue and in terms of the number, scale, and scope of its events portfolio, AtlanticLIVE earned four awards and honorable mentions, including wins for Best Conference, Best Custom Event, and Media Event Dream Team. Atlantic Re:think, The Atlantic’s in-house creative marketing group, also took home an honorable mention.
The Folio: FAME Awards honor outstanding events in the magazine industry. In its recognition of The Atlantic, Folio’s editors noted: “The extraordinary thing about The Atlantic is that virtually everything it touches has an instant stamp of innovation, thought leadership, and fresh ideas about important and often overlooked topics.”
“We’re all thrilled. The events space is so competitive and to get this kind of recognition is very gratifying,” said Margaret Low Smith, the president of AtlanticLIVE and vice president of The Atlantic. “The fact that AtlanticLIVE won the ‘dream team’ award says it all. This is a total team sport and requires a huge helping of smarts, imagination, and grit.”
