Sara - good to highlight this and the work that ABM is doing in China. I was also pleased to see Claudia last week in Shanghai and CEFCO was once again a strong event.

Don't forget the online component of all this. In many segments of publishing, magazines have not reached real critical mass in terms of business development. With 137 million Internet users, 50 million of them with broadband, there are real opportunities for B2B media companies to pursue aggressive on-line only strategies linked to strong face-to-face events of which (unlike magazines) they can have 100% control. I know the ABM Leadership group was very impressed with the numbers that Global Sources' Merle Hinrichs shared with them on the percentage of business that group is doing online and the incredibly fast growth of its face-to-face activities.
