BiZBash.com & mediabistro.com create Joint Venture to Launch National Hospitality, Meeting and Event Industry Job Board
Underserved Market To Gain From Boutique Approach

New York, New York - February 28, 2003 - David Adler, founder and CEO of BiZBash Media and Laurel Touby, founder and CEO of mediabistro.com, announced today that they have teamed up to launch a boutique job board on the BiZBash.com site serving the local and national hospitality, special event and meeting industries. The new BiZBash.com "Find a Job, Post a Job" site focuses on both full-time and part-time positions in sales, management, planning, production, and service jobs on both the vendor and client sides of the hospitality, meeting and event industries.

The site will be free to job seekers and have a "satisfaction guarantee" for job posters-they won't pay for the ad if they don't receive qualified responses.

"We are thrilled to be working with mediabistro.com to serve a market that has needed a dynamic job board. mediabistro.com has become the standard in the media industry employment niche by supplementing users' online experience with face-to-face networking and training events. We will follow that model as well," Adler says.

Richard Aaron, CMP, CSEP and president of BiZBash Media will take on a similar role for the BiZBash.com Find a Job Post a Job site. He will organize both networking and training events for all event-related industries.

"mediabistro.com will power the BiZBash.com Find a Job, Post a Job site, and will concentrate on delivering the right candidates to prospective employers when they need them, and will provide all the personal service that goes along with a boutique approach to job boards," said mediabistro.com's Touby.
