BtoB Magazine Names InformationWeek to Top 10 List in Annual Media Power 50

InformationWeek Is the Only IT Media Brand to Rank Among Top 10 Business-to-Business Advertising Venues

May 5, 2005

InformationWeek, the leading IT media brand, was ranked number 9 in the 6th Annual Media Power 50 issue of BtoB magazine, Crain Communication Inc.'s publication for marketing strategists. This marked the fifth year that InformationWeek hit the top 10 ranking of the "top 50 b-to-b advertising venues."

The BtoB Media Power 50 looks at the top advertising venues as ranked by media buyers, industry analysts, and BtoB editors and reporters. Data such as ad revenue and audience were evaluated, and all participants were polled for their opinions on the most powerful and targeted b-to-b advertising venues. InformationWeek was the only IT magazine named in the Top 10 list.

"InformationWeek puts our b-to-b advertisers into a very strong editorial environment," said Mike Pilaso, associate media director at Universal McCann, New York, in BtoB Magazine. "But just as important, it delivers that elusive senior-level IT and corporate executive audience everyone in this sector wants."

"InformationWeek is focused on accelerating its relevancy as the leading voice in the business technology market, and delivering more value to both of our customers - business technology executives and technology providers," said Scott Vaughan, Publisher, InformationWeek. "Through the magazine, InformationWeek online destinations, our executive conferences, as well as our international reach, InformationWeek brings together more than one million IT decision makers each week."
