Wolters Kluwer Global Events Management team wins Gold in 12th annual Best in Biz awards

Wolters Kluwer (Euronext: WKL), a leading provider of expert solutions, insights and services for professionals, today announced that the Wolters Kluwer Global Events Management (GEM) Team was honored for excellence in three categories in the 12th annual Best in Biz awards, the only independent business awards program judged each year by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications in North America.

Carrie Cliggett, Director, Global Event Management, credits her staff’s consistent dedication to excellence and their willingness to push boundaries and incorporate innovation. Notes Cliggett: “I am thrilled that the team is being recognized with such prestigious awards. It is a compelling confirmation that their hard work and commitment is not only critical to our success, but also makes a difference in the wider world." 

The GEM Team won:  

  • Gold for Event of the Year for the Wolters Kluwer Corporate Leadership Summit 
  • Bronze for Environmental Program of the Year for the CCH Tagetik InTouch global user conference 
  • Bronze for Most Innovative CSR Program of the Year for Wolters Kluwer’s Annual Law Summit  

Since the program’s inception in 2011, winners in Best in Biz Awards have been determined based on scoring from independent judging panels assembled each year from some of the most respected national and local newspapers, TV and radio outlets, and business, consumer, technology and trade publications in North America. Thanks to the impressive diversity of represented outlets, and the unparalleled experience and expertise of the editors and reporters serving as judges, Best in Biz Awards judging panels are uniquely suited to objectively determine the best of the best from among the hundreds of competitive entries. The 2022 judging panel included, among others, writers from AdWeek, Computerworld, Forbes, The Globe & Mail, Inc., The Oregonian and Portland Tribune. 

The judges were impressed with the clearly stated goals, flawless execution (impressive speakers, virtual capabilities, local immersion), and statistics showing event success. They particularly appreciated how the events supported local economies, with tours, cultural activities, and locally sourced ingredients and materials. They also appreciated that event attendees were given a way to give back with global efforts to eliminate water accessibility issues.
