UBM TechWeb (www.ubmtechweb.com) announced today that it won six awards in min's annual Best of the Web Awards, which recognizes and honors outstanding Web sites and digital initiatives among consumer and b2b magazines. The winners were announced at an awards breakfast in New York City on April 28th.

UBM TechWeb's InformationWeek, InformationWeek Analytics, Internet Evolution, and Interop grabbed top honors across multiple categories:

  --  InformationWeek for "Best Integration with Print" - InformationWeek
      (www.informationweek.com) was recognized for integration between its
      magazine and InformationWeek Analytics' web site
      (www.analytics.informationweek.com).  According to min's,  "Creating a
      seamless link between print and digital platforms has been a dream of
      publishing throughout the last decade, but few publishers have devoted
      the resources and editorial focus it takes to move readers
      effortlessly across pages and sites. UBM TechWeb's InformationWeek
      publication and the InformationWeek Analytics Web site took up the
      challenge and delivered on the promise of continuous media."
  --  InformationWeek for "Best Virtual Trade Show" - InformationWeek's The
      Business Case for Windows 7 virtual event was named co-winner of this
      category and cited by min's as "thoughtfully designed to address a
      pressing need for a resource that was organized and efficiently
      presented for IT professionals."   The archived virtual event can be
      found at:
  --  Internet Evolution named as one of the "Most Engaged Media Brands" -
      According to min's, Internet Evolution (www.internetevolution.com) has
      "become one of the grandest experiments in business publishing in
      recent years. Originally a think tank of sorts where leading lights of
      tech and Web thinking could meet in an open format of exchange with
      readers, it has blossomed into something more."
  --  Internet Evolution for "Best Ad Program/Partnership" (co-winner) -
      Internet Evolution (www.internetevolution.com) was recognized for its
      outstanding partnership with IBM.  Honored as an example of a true
      win-win marketing partnership, min's says the partnership is "one of
      the clearest demonstrations of the power of the true sponsor."
  --  Internet Evolution for "Overall Use of Video" (co-winner)  -  Internet
      Evolution (www.internetevolution.com)  has fully integrated video as
      part of its blog postings with its "vblogs";  IETV is cited by min's
      as being positively farsighted in serving up its videos dynamically
      onto pages based on context and the viewer's registration profile.
  --  Interop named "In-Box Award" Winner - Interop New York
      (www.interop.com)  2009's e-letter campaign to drive attendance was
      honored for being especially adept at bringing its content and
      marketing partners closer to readers via email.  Interop's 6-month
      campaign exceed all expectations, resulting in over $250,000 in
