New York, NYMeetings & Conventions Magazine (M&C) was again named to the prestigious BtoB Media Power 50 list of the most effective platforms for advertising messages in the U.S.

M&C, an advertising partner of Trade Show Executive, was one of the few trade publications – and the only publication covering the events industry – to be included on the list. Other media brands on the roster were CNN.com, The Wall Street Journal, Google and the National Football League.

Published monthly, M&C reaches approximately 60,000 meeting professionals, including many from Fortune 1000 companies. It was included on last year’s Media Power 50 rankings and in 2003 as well.

The magazine is a division of NORTHSTAR Travel Media LLC.

The BtoB Media Power 50 is compiled based on evaluated ad revenues and the input of a panel of industry analysts, media buyers and advertisers.
