Why should I list my event on Vox?
If you are organizing a meeting involving economists, Vox has the ideal readership: it reaches an influential audience of professional economists and the interested public - working in government, the private sector, academics and journalism. Vox now ranks 11th among economics and business blogs worldwide. It currently receives over 10,000 unique visitors a day from almost a half million distinct IP addresses; the average number of page views is about 35,000 per day. Vox readership is growing steadily, having tripled since August 2007. Half the readers are in the US with big four European nations accounting for another quarter.
