Cleveland—Questex, publisher of Travel Agent and American Salon, has made a round of about 40 job cuts, Kerry Gumas, the b-to-b media company’s president-CEO, confirmed Thursday.

The job cuts came mainly from the print side of the business, which has suffered in the recession, Gumas said.

“We believe the change in print advertising is not just a short-term issue,” he said. “It appears that there has been a structural change, a demand change that’s going to be persistent.”

Gumas said Questex has been readying itself for this change. “We have a pretty significant digital business and also a strong events business, and the print business represents a little bit less than 30% of the total business,” he said.
