Media Information

Pre-Registered Media List

A list with names, addresses, telephone numbers, and email addresses (if provided) of the pre-registered media will be available after the week of 13 June, electronically only. Email your request for the pre-registered media list to Exhibition Management.

Media Briefing and Media Tour

Each year, the SIGGRAPH Media Team works to pitch stories and content to local and national news outlets about the event. Occasionally, these outlets cover the conference and exhibition with live "stand-ups." If you would like to be considered to have your booth profiled, send a brief description of your booth, and why it would generate media interest, to Exhibition Management. Booths showcasing interactive technology where the reporter can physically experience the product or technology live are most likely to be selected.

SIGGRAPH 2016 is looking to feature select exhibitors in this year’s Media Briefing. If you are planning a major announcement at SIGGRAPH 2016, and you are interested in having your announcement or release available at the Media Briefing, please email your announcement details to our PR representative, Dan Harary. Exhibitors are not permitted to hold a competing media event against the SIGGRAPH Media Briefing. 

Following the SIGGRAPH 2016 Media Briefing, the Exhibition will open to the media. Editors will have access to the exhibit floor for a "sneak preview" of the latest products and applications. There is a possibility they could stop by your booth, so please staff accordingly.

Exhibitors are asked to inform the SIGGRAPH media relations staff of all media receptions, briefings, and events, so we can provide the media with up-to-date information about your media-related activities. This will also enable exhibitors to avoid conflicts with other competing briefings, since the public relations staff will maintain a master schedule. Please email all confirmed events to our PR representativeDan Harary, so staff can answer media inquiries. Invitation-only events will not be posted, but will be used as reference to assist editors who request information about the time/date/location of your media event.

Media Facilities

The location of the media headquarters will be available closer to the date of the event. A message board is located in the media headquarters to communicate with media registrants. Exhibitors are permitted to leave promotional kits in the media headquarters. Katie Mowery can be reached at +1.312.673.6050 on all matters relating to the media room operation, media events, and publicity prior to the conference.
