NewBay Celebrates 10th Anniversary

NEW YORK, NY (September 26, 2016) — Founded 10 years ago this September, NewBay has grown from a small group of well-known trade and enthusiast magazine brands, including Pro Sound News, Systems Contractor News, Guitar Player, Tech & Learning, and Digital Video, to being the leading source of information and marketing solutions to the markets it serves — Music, CE/Gaming, Broadcast/Video, AV/Pro Audio, and Education.

NewBay’s growth has been fueled through the timely and strategic aquisiton and business development of new brands, products, and capabilities — each designed to enhance the company’s ability to serve its 4,000 marketing partners and more than 13 million readers. Since it’s inception, NewBay has completed 10 acquisitions, adding depth, reach, geographic diversity, and market knowledge to an expanding portfolio of magazine, digital, event, and data offerings. Furthering growth, its teams have launched dozens of new businesses, including AV Technology, NYC Television Week, School CIO Summits, Tech & Learning Europe, NewBay+ Marketing Services, eSports Pro, the Best of Show Awards, and Acoustic Nation.

“We have come a very long way from where we started in 2006 — not just in the number of brands we offer, but also in how we deliver information to our readers and marketing services to our partners,” says Steve Palm, CEO, NewBay. “Digital, marketing services, rich data, and events have complimented our core magazine brands to create a dynamic, diversified, and operationally efficient enterprise that uniquely delivers value to our served markets.”

Today, NewBay offers its diverse audience of professionals and enthusiasts unparalleled information, news, and data delivered through market-leading digital, event, and magazine media and brands. Marketing partners benefit from an integrated platform of solution-based products and services that deliver high-value results around the key challenges that every marketer faces — brand/product awareness, thought leadership, and demand generation.

“As we move into our second decade, our strengths will continue to serve us well,” adds Palm. “Our portfolio of trusted brands, diverse media capabilities, and unparalleled audience reach positions us uniquely in our markets. Combine that with our team’s creativity, entrepreneurial perspective, and deep market knowledge and relationships, and you can see we have a unique advantage in today’s media market.”
