The news that through the “Guide”, Western Business Media and The British Safety Industry Federation are once again shortlisted is amazing. The Guide has been recognised and well respected within our industry for a long time but to see it remain in the headlines of the Professional Publishing Association is an incredible testament to its quality and reach."
