BiZBash Launches Redesigned Web Site for New York City Market

New York, New York - October 28, 2004 - BiZBash Media launched its redesigned Web site for event and meeting planners and event marketers today. The new and improved BiZBash.com (www.bizbash.com) offers new editorial features, a searchable database of more than 5,000 event vendors, an archive of stories from more than 1,000 past events, a job board, and calendar listings of all kinds of events and meetings. The site receives monthly traffic of more than 200,000 unique users.

“The new site is designed to put all of BiZBash's different products and services directly in front of the user in a lively, easy-to-navigate format that helps them find interesting information immediately,” said BiZBash Editor in Chief Chad Kaydo. “Now you can read quick news stories and see pictures of more events, new venues, and interesting products right on the home page.”

BiZBash.com includes stories from recent events with behind-the-scenes details about who planned, designed, and catered each event, and where they found the props, entertainers, and other details to make it happen. Other stories offer information about new products, services, and venues, as well as news about industry trends and top event executives.

BiZBash’s original site went live in February 2001, and the company launched a full-color, tabloid-size newspaper in 2002. The new BiZBash.com design has colors and fonts that are similar to the newspaper’s.

“I'm very excited to see how our users respond to these changes,” said BiZBash C.E.O. and Founder David Adler. “I think they're going to be amazed at how much great content the site has, and thankful that it's all so much easier to find. And I think our advertisers will be even more excited to be included in this improved environment.”
