The announcement comes as two new publishers—Vendome Group and Questex Media—join the co-operative. “We have been talking with the IMC for some time and the new stimulus program makes this a no brainer,’ said Questex CEO Kerry Gumas in a statement. “We look forward to significant savings in the areas of telemarketing and paper purchasing among the other areas where the IMC has partners.
