Gardner Business Media Wins Nichee Award for The Cool Parts Show

Thursday, May 14, 2020

Gardner Business Media won the 2020 Nichee Award in the category of “Best Use of Video” for The Cool Parts Show. Presented by Niche Media, the Nichee Awards are for target-audience publishers in B2B and consumer spaces. Gardner was the only industrial publication to win an award this year.

Among the reasons cited for winning this honor were the show’s targeted content, high production quality, and rapid growth in terms of views and channel subscribers. Awards host Ryan Dohrn, Industry Partnership Manager for Niche Media, noted “The show is technical without being dry, and smart without taking itself too seriously.” Dohrn went on to declare “It is an excellent use of the medium of video.”

Developed under Gardner’s Additive Manufacturing Media brand, The Cool Parts Show is hosted by editor-in-chief Peter Zelinski and senior editor Stephanie Hendrixson. Each episode focuses on a cool 3D printed part to explore how it was made and what it reveals about the possibilities of additive manufacturing.

“We are honored to win,” says Zelinski. “The show aims in large part to raise our flag high – to find and educate an audience that is eying 3D printing for manufacturing and might be adopting this capability soon.”
