New York—B-to-b magazine revenue totaled $2.49 billion in the first quarter, down from 5.3% in the year-earlier period, according to the latest Business Information Network (BIN) report from American Business Media. However, five of the 21 BIN categories experienced revenue growth.

Leading the growth categories was the aviation, aerospace, military category, up 10.15% in the first quarter compared with the same period last year. Other gainers were: agriculture (3.99%); manufacturing, processing (3.82%); professional services (2.22%); and architecture, design, lighting (2.14%).

In addition, trade shows continue to post modest growth, with first quarter revenue increasing 1.5% to $2.98 billion.
