NEW YORK -- May 2, 2013

WebMediaBrands Inc. (Nasdaq: WEBM) today reported financial results for the
quarter ended March 31, 2013.

Financial Results for the first quarter of 2013 include:

  *Revenues for the first quarter of 2013 were $2.5 million compared to
    revenues of $3.7 million for the same period in 2012.
  *Net loss for the first quarter of 2013 was $924,000 compared to a net loss
    of $617,000 for the same period in 2012.

“Our financial results for the first quarter were partially impacted by the
fact that we did not run any trade shows during the quarter,” stated Alan M.
Meckler, Chairman and CEO of WebMediaBrands Inc. “By comparison, we ran three
trade shows during the same period in 2012, including our Inside Social Apps
trade show, which is not scheduled to run until June of this year. We are very
excited about the recently concluded launch event of our newest trade show,
Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo, which took place on April 22^nd and
23^rd in New York City. This trade show was critically and financially
successful and, as a result, we will be running this event in Chicago, San
Jose, and Singapore later this year, and intend to expand to additional
locations in 2014,” added Meckler.
