NEEDHAM, Mass. --(Business Wire)-- May 12, 2005 -- Information technology (IT) media company TechTarget announced today that, for the fifth consecutive year, TechTarget's targeted media properties have been named by BtoB magazine to the "Media Power 50," BtoB's annual list of the 50 most powerful business-to-business advertising venues.
