Awards recognition for Scottish Dental
Scottish Dental magazine has been shortlisted for two major awards at the prestigious PPA Scottish Magazine Awards.
The magazine’s advertising sales manager Ann Craib is up for the Sales Performance award and the Scottish Dental Show is on a hat-trick in the Brand Extension category, having won the award in 2012 and 2013.
Ann has been working on the magazine for more than 20 years, first as Scottish Dentist and since 2010 when Connect Publications started publishing Scottish Dental magazine. In the last year, she has overseen a growth in sales of 16 per cent on the previous year as well as introducing a range of supplements which have grown revenue in these issues by 20 per cent.
With the introduction of the Scottish Dental Show in 2012 and the Scottish Dental Awards in 2013, Ann has been solely responsible for stand and ticket sales and other commercial opportunities. Last year, the Scottish Dental Show moved to a bigger venue in Braehead Arena and turnover increased by 50 per cent and profitability by 67 per cent.
Having won the Brand Extension award for the last two years, the show is poised for a fantastic hat-trick after being shortlisted yet again. The 2014 event saw more than 1,500 delegates through the doors to visit more than 135 stands and attend more than 40 speaker sessions and workshops.
The winners of the awards will be announced at a gala dinner and award ceremony on Thursday 11 December, at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Glasgow.
