NEWARK, New Jersey, December 9, 2010 - PIERS, the Standard in Trade Intelligence, today announced that it is
offering online advertising with its Directory of U.S. Importers and
Directory of U.S. Exporters. Used by small businesses, retailers, logistics
providers and others, the Directories recently transformed from print to
digital content, offering easy access to identify thousands of companies
involved in global trade.

"Businesses are shifting their advertising online," says Wael Jarous,
Vice President, Sales. "Customers were accustomed to advertising in the print
version of the Directories; it was a logical business decision to offer
online advertising space." With PIERS Directories, customers get the added
benefit of reaching an extended global trade community affiliated through the
United Business Media Global Trade (UBMGT) audience.

Advertising in PIERS Directories enables customers to affordably promote
their organization's products and services to leading decision makers. With
additional traffic driving to their website, customers can reach executives
in a variety of industries who use the Directories to research global markets
both domestically and abroad. Even libraries and universities use the
Directories for research purposes, exposing advertisers to multiple users for
an extended period of time.

The Directory of U.S. Importers and Directory of U.S. Exporters is ideal
for locating sales leads, finding importers and exporters by product and for
marketing and reference purposes. Customers have access to details associated
with 150,000 importers and 50,000 exporters. Data is refreshed on a
semi-annual basis to keep current on the evolving global trade environment.

The PIERS Directory of U.S. Importers and Directory of U.S. Exporters are
two separate online products that can be purchased together or separately on
an annual subscription basis. A special promotional rate is in effect until
January 1, 2011.
