FierceMarkets Charts A Path For Growth
WASHINGTON, DC - April 30, 2009 - FierceMarkets (http://www.fiercemarkets.com), a Questex Media Group company, reported a series of record months in the first quarter of 2009 despite less-than-favorable economic conditions.
"During the first quarter, we've posted record-breaking months on a number of fronts. Sales are up more than 30% year-over-year, page views are up 97%, and we're seeing an increase in attendance at our live networking and content events," said FierceMarkets President, Sean Griffey. "In an economic environment where other publishing companies are scaling back, we're charting a course for growth."
Plans for additional growth are taking shape on a variety of fronts. Fierce has plans to launch a least four new publications this year in both the healthcare and life sciences verticals. FierceMobileHealthcare and FierceBiotechIT will be the first new offerings to hit their respective markets later this month.
Fierce has also further expanded its product offerings through a new partnership with Jaz'd, a national leader in on-line B2B directory service platforms. This partnership will create directories for the life sciences and healthcare verticals. The collaboration provides additional depth to Fierce's already robust Web offerings by providing detailed information on products and services, ratings & reviews, product comparisons, and downloadable product specifications.
FierceMarkets was acquired in January 2008 by Questex Media Group, Inc. (www.questex.com), a global, diversified business-to-business integrated media and information provider headquartered in Newton, MA.
