We get it. We know that even as the influence of the geeks continues to grow, securing press coverage is still your top priority. That’s why delivering the best (not just the biggest) press audience is our TOP priority. It’s also why we produce two exclusive press events at each event – one on the first night and another on the afternoon of the second day before the geeks arrive that night.
Our press attendees represent the leading tech blogs, key lifestyle publications, influential YouTubers and Mommy Bloggers, local TV affiliates, and specialized journalists focused on key categories such as connected cars, AR and VR, IoT, smart homes, wearables, robotics, drones, fintech, health tech, ed tech and more.
All our exhibitors receive the full press RSVP list with contact info prior to the event. After the event, you’ll receive the final RSVP list again with an added column where you can see who actually showed up. This way, you can see who we’re reaching and who’s attending.
To increase your chances of getting covered, we offer speaking opportunities, onstage product launches, and private rooms for press briefings. To make it easier for the press to prepare, our best-in-class exhibitor listings include a link to your PR representative’s email address and a link to an online folder with all your press materials. For a small fee, you can get an Enhanced Exhibitor Listing that includes your company description, photos of your staff, and details on the products you’re showcasing.
Finally, with CNET serving as the “official host” of our consumer showcase at our San Francisco events, you are sure to see them at the event on the second night hanging out in the CNET Lounge or going table-to-table live streaming interviews with exhibitors to their millions of fans on their social media feeds.
But we’re never satisfied either! We’re constantly updating our lists and brainstorming on new ways to get more press to attend.
