Two communications awards for the Port of Montreal


Montreal, June 27, 2014 – The Port of Montreal is proud to announce that it is the recipient of two Awards of Distinction from the American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA) through its 2014 Communications Awards Program.

One of the Awards of Distinction, in the Special Events category, recognizes the high quality of design and execution of the 175th Gold-Headed Cane Presentation Ceremony held on January 3, 2014. A reminder: the ceremony took place on January 3, 2014 before a record number of representatives of Montreal’s business community and leading figures in politics and the arts.

Two weeks ago, the same event won a Merit Award, Special Events, from the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC). It’s definitely awards season!

The other Award of Distinction, in the Periodicals category, recognizes the artistic style and contents of Logbook E-magazine. This publication for the general public aims to familiarize Montrealers and Quebeckers with the Port of Montreal’s operations along with its social and economic importance. In this, Logbook E-magazine is completely aligned with the Port of Montreal’s intent to get closer to its own community, to take part in its neighbouring communities’ life and to fully play its role as a responsible corporate citizen. Logbook is published three times a year and is available free of charge on the Home page of the Port of Montreal’s website. 

Winners of the 47th 2014 Communications Award Program will be honoured on November 12 during the AAPA’s 103rd Annual Convention and Expo in Houston, Texas.

The Port of Montreal would like to thank all the employees and partners who participated in organizing the 175th Gold-Headed Cane Presentation Ceremony, as well as all members of the creative and production team of Logbook E-magazine. Congratulations to all!
