The closing of the print publication follows the recent announcement that Internet World was co-locating its German trade show with the Systems information technology show in Munich later this year.
Penton acquired Internet World in 1998 as part of its $274 million leveraged buyout of Mecklermedia.
Internet World will continue to produce a Web site, a weekly e-newsletter, Web events and Webcasts. The print publicationâs 175,000 subscribers will be offered a free subscription to the weekly e-newsletter, "Internet Worldâs Internet Business."
Penton will continue to publish Internet World in the U.K. and Germany.
