The San Diego Business Journal is the premier source for business trends and news in the greater San Diego region. The publication recently celebrated their 3th anniversary, an incredible milestone worth noting. To celebrate, the paper hosted a gathering of over 1,000 people on the USS Midway, overlooking the beautiful San Diego Bay.
