"Our competitive advantage - and the Number One reason for our success - is the talent and enthusiasm of our people."
-- Kerry Smith, Founder & President
Red 7 Media is the world's most respected creator of content for the Event and Media industries.
The company was founded in 2002 with the launch of Event Marketer Magazine. Since then, through launches and strategic acquisitions, the company has grown into a multi-publication media company. We are proud to have been named the #1 fastest-growing periodicals company in the U.S. by INC Magazine in 2007, having grown 545% over a four-year period.
Driving that growth is our team of passionate professionals who are dedicated to creating marketplaces where buyers and sellers connect, and to helping our customers achieve success. We facilitate these connections through a comprehensive network of magazines, websites, and live events; and we stimulate business opportunities for our customers via an array of custom marketing, lead-generation, and consulting services.
Red 7 Media’s magazines reach more decision-makers in the Event and Media industries than any other business media company. We deliver a readership that no publisher in our categories can match. Our websites, newsletters and live events extend Red 7 Media’s category leadership across every media channel. In early 2011, we became a part of Access Intelligence, a business information company.
Red 7 Factoids
Why Red 7?
We wanted a name that would suggest an aggressive, forward-thinking organization. One that would not be print-centric and mired in the “old world” view of magazine publishing, but would encompass our view that today’s – and tomorrow’s – successful publishers are – and will be – those that create and distribute content across multiple media and go beyond that to create communities among readers and advertisers. So, our choice of “red” symbolizes our aggressive approach to building communities around our markets with quality products and services.
The "7" signifies our key business drivers. They are:
1. Publishing dominant magazine brands
2. Producing high-quality conferences, seminars and trade shows
3. Creating strong web and emedia information resources
4. Providing lead-generation and business development services
5. Implementing customized marketing and creative programs
6. Fostering an entrepreneurial and creative work environment
7. Executing outrageous, bold ideas
