Attendee Overview

Only getgeeked events deliver both audiences you need to engage to succeed today. On consecutive nights, you’ll see all the key press you need covering your new products and the passionate, hard-to-reach early adopters you need advocating on your behalf to their friends, family, and social media connections.

The Press


We get it. We understand that even as the influence of the geeks continues to grow, securing press coverage is still your top priority. That’s why delivering a best-of-class press audience is our top priority. Our press attendees represent the leading tech blogs, key lifestyle publications, influential YouTubers and Mommy Bloggers, local TV affiliates, and specialized journalists focused on specific categories such as car tech, smart home, wearables, robotics, drones, fintech, healthtech, edtech and more.

As a getgeeked exhibitor, you’ll receive the full media RSVP list with contact info before the event and you’re encouraged to do your own outreach. After the event, you’ll receive the final RSVP list with a column indicating who attended. Companies that include a Platinum or Gold Marketing Package in their exhibitor package are able to place links under their logo on our website to email PR contacts and direct press to Dropbox folder where press materials they’ve provided us are made available to the media.

To increase your chances of being covered, we offer speaking opportunities, onstage product launches, and private rooms for press briefings.

We’re constantly researching and updating our lists and exploring new ways to get the press to attend like our Geek’s Choice Tech Media Awards program we’re launching in 2017. But we’re not just inviting the press, we’re also partnering with leading tech media properties to increase the reach of our events. At our 2016 New York event, Digital Trends hosted getgeeked@Night, our official live stream program. When we extended our events to two-nights later in 2016, CNET served as the official host of the getgeeked SF Consumer Showcase on the second night, live-streaming the getgeeked SF show floor to their 2 million Facebook fans.

Our consumer attendees represent the savvy, influential tech enthusiasts that you need on your side to succeed today. They’re the “go to” person for their friends, families, and social media connections when it comes to advice on what tech products to purchase and the reviews and opinions they’re sharing are already impacting your bottom line.

But they’re also hard to reach and, if you do get their attention, they demand authenticity and dialogue. In short, they expect you to listen to them if you want them to listen to you. Do it well, however, and they will become your most important advocates because they don’t just understand the “speeds and feeds,” they know how the industry works.

Goodwill toward your brand grows the minute they walk in the door because they know you felt it was important to connect with them directly by participating at a getgeeked event. They come to our events full of enthusiasm, ready to learn about your products and eager to offer you their feedback. As we’ve been known to say, if you’re not listening as much as your speaking at one of our events, you’re really missing out. This is your chance and you don’t get many.
