Florida-based Company Awarded Top Industry Honors for Magazine Re-launch
ORLANDO, Fla., (Sept. 30, 2009) – Turnstile Publishing Company has received top honors for marketing excellence, winning the coveted 2009 Integrated Marketing Award in the category of Total Integrated Program for Launch. Presented by Media Industry Newsletter (min) – the media industry’s leading publication and the authoritative source on media business – the prestigious award recognized Turnstile’s in-house marketing group for its exceptional work publicizing the re-launch of Golfweek magazine, the publishing company’s flagship publication.
