Globalpress is once again running its highly successful Global Electronics Press Summit in April. The event brings together a culmination of top media professionals from the global electronics trade press at a local venue in the US.

High profile executives from North American electronics companies will be on hand to deliver an insight into the latest cutting edge developments and business achievements from these leading companies.

A highly focused range of specialist trade media from across Europe and Asia will come together to participate in this event, reporting on the latest industry developments, delivering this information to their specialised readership across the globe.

Opportunity for press coverage

More than 20 organisations – from start-ups to established corporations – are expected to attend the 2013 Globalpress Electronics Summit, which will take place Monday, April 15, to Thursday, April 18.

Commenting on the event as a participating company, Dale Weisman, Global Public Relations Manager at Silicon Labs (Austin, Texas) said: “This is one of the most prominent opportunities for press coverage from all over the world – without having to travel abroad.

“The Electronics Summit provides Silicon Labs with an outstanding forum for launching our latest mixed-signal solutions, presenting our vision for key markets such as consumer electronics, smart energy and the Internet of Things, and strengthening our relationships with some of the most influential technology trade press from across Europe, Asia-Pacific and the U.S”.

“Meeting with some of the industry’s most influential companies to learn of the latest technology developments is an invaluable opportunity. It not only establishes relationships that will continue for many years but it presents an opportunity to experience a real inside view of these companies and their innovations, from meeting not only face-to-face but also experiencing a firsthand view of the inner workings of these companies at their facilities”, commented Michelle Winny, Editor, Connectingindustry/Electronics.

“This event is well worth the investment on behalf of the participating companies in terms of time and support for the event, along with the invaluable opportunity it presents to the international Editors, Winny concluded.

‘Speed Dating’ on Stage for smaller companies,

An entire Summit day — Thursday April 18 – is set aside for presentations from emerging companies, according to Irmgard Lafrentz, President and CEO of Globalpress Connection, the Organiser of the annual Summit.

“New this year for very small companies will be a series of 15-minute “Short Stop” press briefings, which Lafrentz says will be “something like speed dating on stage.”

Some of the topics scheduled for coverage will include components, embedded systems, tools and IP for applications in the automotive, broadcast, consumer- electronics, communications, industrial, medical and scientific industry segments.

How companies can participate

Companies wishing to meet with the international media at the 2013 Globalpress Electronics Summit can choose from several sponsorship levels, depending on their objective and budget. Overall, says Lafrentz, the cost of participating saves executives time and allows access to an international audience for a fraction of the price of an international press tour.
