WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 22, 2020) – For the first time in 41 years, SIPAwards will be held virtually on June 2 at 4 p.m. ET. These prestigious and highly coveted awards recognize excellence in marketing, editorial and product success in the specialized information industry.

"The SIPAwards showcase the top-notch journalism and valuable solutions specialized publishers provide for the niche communities they serve across the globe,” said SIIA President Jeff Joseph. “These publishers and their teams continue to produce outstanding work, despite these challenging times. While current events prevent us from celebrating in person, we look forward to gathering the global community to celebrate the best of the best as we connect online."

The largest audience ever assembled for this program will commence on June 2 at 4 p.m. ET, following the second and final day of the SIPA 2020 Virtual Conference.
