GIIA website wins global Web Excellence Award

We’re delighted to announce that our website has won Best Association Website in this year’s global Web Excellence Awards

The award for New website and CMS for GIIA, is cited as a 'remarkable' achievement and one that we share with our website developer Heavy Penguin Ltd. 

Our new website – launched in 2022 – has been recognised for having enhanced our online presence with a modern website and user-friendly content management system. The improved user-experience has made it easier for the team to manage and update content, as well as allowing for effortless content consumption for visitors. 

The judges said: “These awards are exclusively for those who epitomize excellence on the web. Your project has accomplished a remarkable feat, earning it a well-deserved position among the finest on the web.”

Jon Phillips, CEO of the Global Infrastructure Investor Association (GIIA), said: “I’m delighted that our website has won this award, which is a testament to the hard work of the company that designed and built it, and to our team who now manage and populate it.

“As a global organisation that seeks to share best practice with policy makers and stakeholders round the world, it’s vital that we have a platform that showcases our news and advocacy work, and the insight and evidence base that we gather with our members, who are the world’s leading infrastructure investors.”  

Brian McHugh, CEO and founder of Heavy Penguin, added: “It's a great achievement considering that this year’s 11th Web Excellence Awards has had the largest ever entry count, with more than 900 entries from across 21 countries.”
