MIT’s Technology Review, CyberMedia to jointly launch ‘Technology Review’ in India

Technology Review, Inc., an independent media company owned by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and CyberMedia have inked a deal to launch the Indian editions of EmTech (Emerging Technologies) Conference and the award-winning magazine ‘Technology Review’. ‘Technology Review’ is the oldest technology magazine in the world, while this would be the first time an EmTech Conference would be held away from MIT and outside the US.

The launch of EmTech India, a premier technology conference for corporate leaders, is slated for February-March 2009. The Indian edition of ‘Technology Review’ would be unveiled at this Conference. It would be a pilot issue. The magazine, which would be a monthly, would be formally launched later in 2009. The relationship with CyberMedia marks the fifth deal for an international edition signed in recent years by Technology Review.

Jason Pontin, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of ‘Technology Review’, said, “We met with several excellent potential partners and went through a rigorous selection process. It was a difficult decision, but given CyberMedia’s decades of experience in technology publishing, they were the clear choice in the end. We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership.”

Commenting on the development, Pradeep Gupta, Chairman, CyberMedia Group, said, “We are excited at the prospect of introducing the Conference and the publication to the Indian technology community. This will be the 16th media offering for us, expanding our existing presence in the technology sector. MIT’s ‘Technology Review’ brings the best and latest developments on emerging technologies that have the power of transforming the Indian technology sector.”

Pankaj Nath, Senior Vice President, CyberMedia, said, “As India continues its stride to become a knowledge powerhouse, the impact of emerging technologies will be felt far and wide. The Conference will benefit not only India, but the entire Asian corporate community. We look forward to making EmTech the premier technology event in the entire region.”

“Bringing together these two great media companies has been an extremely enriching and rewarding experience,” said Chander Rai, President and CEO of Cross Border Media, an international media consultancy firm.
