American Spa Scores Multiple Folio Awards

awards09I spend a lot of time on the road, both at spas and at trade shows, and the most common thing I hear from my readers is, “American Spa is my favorite magazine. I read it from cover-to-cover and even tear out pages to pass along to my staff.” It is incredibly fulfilling to know that the efforts of my team are so appreciated by our industry. And it turns out, the spa world isn’t the only one impressed by our magazine. The publishing world is equally enthused. For the fourth year in a row, American Spa has been tapped for editorial excellence from FOLIO:, a leading publishing industry magazine. A panel of 60 expert judges sifted through more than 2,000 entries this year and honored American Spa with two gold Eddie trophies—one for Best Overall Issue for the October 2008 edition and one for Best Single Article for “There’s The Rub” by Peggy Wynne Borgman, which was published in June 2008.

I’m so excited to share this news, and I would like to take the opportunity to introduce you to my team. Click here to meet the staff of American Spa magazine and access all of our email accounts. We’d love to hear your feedback about the award and the magazine itself. What do you think about American Spa, and what can we do to improve and serve you better? I’d like to continue receiving these annual FOLIO: honors, and the only way we can do that is by maintaining our position as the industry’s most valuable publication. Please stay in touch to help us stay on top—feel free to contact me any time at
