Exhibit Surveys, Inc.’s latest Publication Readership Analysis also ranks BUILDER and as “Most Valuable” and “Most Visited” respectively

Exhibit Surveys, Inc. has just released the results of their publication readership study from the 2011 NAHB International Builders’ Show in Orlando, and for the 29th consecutive year, BUILDER continues to rank as the No. 1 most-read publication. BUILDER boasts more than 3 times the total readership among homebuilders and total show attendees than that of Professional Builder, another trade publication measured in the study.

“BUILDER remains dedicated to editorial leadership and excellence among the residential new construction industry and providing our loyal readers with the relevant content and solutions to help them innovate and succeed, even in a tough homebuilding environment” said Jeff Calore, BUILDER’S Publisher. “Each year the IBS survey results validate the relationship and unrivaled engagement homebuilding pro’s have with the BUILDER brand. We continue to make significant investments in our readers latest information needs, including the debut earlier this year of a cutting-edge redesign of the magazine. We are very proud of these results and the affirmation that we are successfully delivering on our mission and more.”

In addition, BUILDER ranks first again as the “most valuable publication for your business” by a 5 to 1 margin over the next ranked publication. The brand’s companion Web site,, also received highest ratings among trade media sites — across all respondents as well as the builder segment — for regular visitation.

Exhibit Surveys Inc.’s annual IBS readership study is the only independent, third party study that measures unaided publication recall and readership for the residential construction industry. The report also serves as a powerful planning tool for marketers looking to better understand what media brands best deliver the homebuilder target, including readership duplication analysis, add-on readership, and more.
