Reinventing the Tech Industry Media Event

We founded getgeeked Media because the current tech industry press event model is broken. Events that charge you thousands of dollars just to be in the same room with the press for three hours are as outdated as they are overpriced.

Make no mistake, press coverage remains absolutely critical to your success, but it’s just one piece of the puzzle in today’s consumer-driven marketing environment. To succeed today, you also need to convert influential consumers into powerful advocates because the opinions they’re sharing are setting the tech-buying trends across the country and around the world. 

At our events, you’ll meet with the press you need covering your products and the tech enthusiasts you need recommending them. You’ll convert influencers into advocates, create a wave of positive buzz that reaches far beyond the show floor, and leave with great content that you can repurpose many times over to show your followers that you “get it!’

We call it the “The 5Cs of getgeeked” and it’s our mission to deliver it to all our exhibitors at the industry’s most effective and affordable events.

Coverage –  Press attendance is our first priority because press coverage is yours. Our innovative two-day format features two press events – a three-hour cocktail event on the first night and a two-hour luncheon the following afternoon so members of the press have two options when to attend.

Connections – In an age when people spend so much time on social media, face-to-face interactions are more important than ever. The second night of a getgeeked event offers you a rare opportunity to engage with passionate, hard-to-reach micro-influencers. You’ll have a chance to get feedback you can’t get anywhere else, build relationships with these alpha-consumers, and begin converting them into your most effective marketers.

Community – The interactions you’ll have at our are events are meaningful and real, but they can be fleeting. Through our new Techfluence brand, exhibitors can follow up with attendees, continue the conversations they started at the event, and build the lasting relationships that will keep these critical consumers loyal to your brand.

Content – It’s hard to overstate the importance of consistently sharing good content with consumers. After all, we’re all publishers today. At our events, you’ll not only benefit from the content we create to promote your participation and the awesome content attendees generate on your behalf, you’ll also receive photos and videos of your participation after the event so you can share your getgeeked experience and show your followers that you understand the importance of engaging with consumers face-to-face.

Commerce – But let’s not kid ourselves. The end game is to help you sell more products so why wait until after the event. All our exhibitors can make their products available in our Virtual Shopping Zone on the show floor where attendees can order them with the click of a mouse. There’s no additional charge, no need to ship inventory, and it won’t interfere with the interactions you have at your exhibit.

Beyond the 5Cs, we also offer some of the best branding opportunities in the industry, but to fully understand what makes our events so much more compelling than traditional tech industry media events, we have to add one more C to the list.

Cost – Our entry-level 6′ table exhibitor package is less than 1/2 what you’ll spend to showcase your products at a typical, three-hour, press-only event. We don’t charge extra for WiFi or bringing an extra person or two and every package includes both press showcases and the consumer showcase. Take a look at this chart for a side-by-side comparison of getgeeked and a typical tech industry media event.
