Soundings Trade Only received a 2009 Bronze Eddie Award from Folio magazine for editorial excellence in the May 2009 issue.
Trade received the award in the Business-to-Business, Recreation/Sports/Outdoor, Full Issue category.
The May 2009 issue included a package of articles on "green initiatives;" reports on how the "Rust Belt" and superyacht industry were faring during the recession; a question-and-answer session with Ed Lofgren of the Marine Retailers Association of America and a report on how GE's interest rate hikes would affect the industry.
"The Trade Only team has worked very hard to keep the industry informed during this tough, challenging year," Trade Only editor in chief Bill Sisson said. "It's certainly gratifying to see those efforts acknowledged."
