Each year, the SIGGRAPH Media Team works to pitch stories and content to local and national news outlets. Occasionally, these outlets cover the conference and exhibition with live "stand-ups". If you would like to be considered to have your booth profiled, send a brief description of your booth, and why it would generate media interest, to Exhibition Management. Booths showcasing interactive technology where the reporter can physically experience the product or technology live are most likely to be selected.
Exhibitors are not permitted to hold a competing media event against the SIGGRAPH Media Briefing scheduled for Tuesday, 7 August, 8:15 am - 9 am. SIGGRAPH 2012 is looking to feature select exhibitors in the Media Briefing. If you are planning a major announcement at SIGGRAPH 2012, and you are interested in having your announcement/release info available at Tuesday morning's Media Briefing, please email your announcement details to Marcia Daudelin.
Exhibitors are asked to inform the SIGGRAPH media relations staff of all media receptions, briefings, and events, in order to provide the media with up-to-date information about your media-related activities. This will also enable exhibitors to avoid conflicts with other competing briefings since the public relations staff will maintain a master schedule. Please fax (+1.312.673.6707) or email all confirmed events to Marcia Daudelin so her staff can answer media inquiries. Invitation-only events will not be posted, but will be used as reference to assist editors who request information with the time/date/location of your media event.
Media headquarters is located in the convention center, Room 306. A message board is located in the media headquarters to communicate with media registrants. Exhibitors are permitted to leave promotional kits in the Media Lounge. Marcia Daudelin can be reached at +1.312.673.4818 on all matters relating to the media room operation, media events, and publicity.
An electronic list with names, addresses, telephone numbers, fax numbers, and email addresses (if provided) of the pre-registered media will be available after Friday, 6 July. Email your request for the pre-registered Media List to Exhibition Management.
Media Tour & Media Briefing
Following the SIGGRAPH 2012 Media Briefing scheduled at 8:15 am on Tuesday, the Exhibition will open to the media at approximately 9 am. Editors will have access to the exhibit floor in this time frame for a "sneak preview" of the latest products and applications. Each editor will be given a list of exhibitors who have expressed interest in talking privately with the media before the show floor officially opens. This list will also contain a brief summary of your company as well as the contact person for your booth. To be included on the Media Tour, complete and return the Media Tour Request Form by 13 July.
