"By launching local sites for our readers, we will be able to maximize our content offerings for our international audience. Each of these international SYS-CON sites will also emerge as the leading i-technology portals in their respective countries."

"SYS-CON's international sites will offer a selection of content from all the i-technology topics we cover every day, in addition to the local breaking news, views, events, and interviews with technology leaders and opinion makers in these countries," said Roger Strukhoff, president of SYS-CON International. "Our readers who live in these countries will land on the SYS-CON local home page(s) and be greeted in their own language before they navigate to a certain section of our site."

"We have been running geo-targeted advertising campaigns for our advertisers for the past five years," said Carmen Gonzalez, senior vice president of advertising and sales at SYS-CON Media. "Our advertisers are thrilled with this new opportunity that our international Web sites enable in delivering their geo-targeted messages most effectively to our readers."

SYS-CON is projecting it will double its readership from these countries by the end of this year and an exponential growth going forward. Each of these international sites will run independently as the most respected i-technology resources in these countries, some through licensing partnerships with leading local i-technology publishers.
