Revenue fell by 11% in first half of 2013. Online revenue fell by 4%.


There’s a great article in theMediaBriefing about UBM’s plans to invest in future growth, and to transition to an "events-driven, digital content marketing business". Perhaps the most interesting thing for tech marketers is that UBM CEO David Levin said the company will have either sold its existing traditional media businesses in the Tech and Built Environment divisions or recast them as digital, events-driven content marketing brands by the end of 2013. Will the tech business be sold, or is the relaunch of a new "social" sufficient to make the brand fit UBM’s model? I guess only time will tell.
