(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.
