EXHIBITOR Magazine Recognizes Five Companies for Excellence in Print Advertising
11/7/2017
Five companies received honors from EXHIBITOR magazine for their outstanding results from the 2017 On Target Ad Readership Study, conducted by the independent research firm Readex Research, on behalf of Exhibitor Media Group.

The top 5 ranked ads, rated highest by EXHIBITOR magazine readers for their overall effectiveness, were submitted by the following companies:
  • Orange County Convention Center
  • Elevation Exhibits & Events
  • AFR Trade Show Furnishings
  • North America Display
  • SmartSource Computer & A/V Rentals
The winning ads are posted below.

The study included advertisements in the October 2017 issue of EXHIBITOR magazine. Quantitative and qualitative feedback was obtained from a survey of EXHIBITOR magazine subscribers.

Readers were asked to give feedback regarding whether each ad was effective in key areas of marketing communications: visual appeal, ease of reading, amount of information, and clear communication of benefits. EXHIBITOR magazine readers also rated the ads for overall effectiveness and provided comments about the strengths and weaknesses of each ad.

“By analyzing reader interactions with these ads and comparing their performance with other studied ads, marketers can discover ways to communicate more effectively with their target audience, allowing them to enhance the return on their advertising investment,” said John Pavek, Chief Marketing Officer for Exhibitor Media Group. “The Readex On Target study is an extremely valuable assessment of a company’s marketing communications effectiveness.”

Readex Research is an independent research firm in Stillwater, Minnesota. Since 1947, Readex has conducted thousands of survey research projects for publishers, advertisers, and their agencies. For more information go to www.readexresearch.com.
