If your company is planning on making an announcement leading up to or at Enterprise Connect, we can help you increase the exposure through a press release, issued one week prior to the event on Monday, March 10th, showcasing exhibitor announcements at the event. Enterprise Connect offers an amazing audience to target for your company's new product or service announcement, and no other enterprise communications event brings the same impressive and accessible blend of press, analysts, exhibitors and attendees together — and we'd like to help you reach them. If you are interested in participating in this release opportunity, a form will be available soon in the PR Opportunities section of the Exhibitor Portal.
Please note: Submissions cannot exceed 50 words. No marketing copy will be considered. Deadline for participation is Friday, February 28th.
For an example of the types of announcements included and a format for your submission, please see last year's release here.
The list of pre-registered press, analysts and bloggers planning to attend the event will become available for download on Friday, February 14, 2014 in the Enterprise Connect Exhibitor Portal. Following this date, the media list will be updated on a weekly basis, each Friday. Access to this information will give you the opportunity to set up on-site interviews and meetings prior to the event.
**Note to PR agencies—the media list is downloaded directly to the Exhibitor Portal and will not be shared with 3rd parties. Please get the login information from your client.
