Supercomputing 2011 returns to Seattle November 12-18. Owen Media has sent clients to SC every fall since 1997 (Cray, CAPS Entreprise, ClearSpeed, IBM, InfiniBand, Intel, HP and others). For the 250 exhibitors coming to the conference, here are local resources to pull off a successful event. Of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t include a few shameless promotions.
Messaging and strategy: Do you have your cloud story locked down? Owen Media works with global HPC brands on marketing strategy and messaging. We help our clients demonstrate thought leadership. We believe people are more loyal when they are inspired, not incented to act.
PR: This is what we do best. We know the editors and analysts at SC and can schedule interviews. Do you have a good story to tell? See bullet one, above.
Collateral: We integrate design with subject matter experts to speed delivery of high production value collateral on complex subjects.
Hospitality: There are still great venues available adjacent to the convention center if you know who to call. We’ve secured a discount from one of Seattle’s leading sushi restaurants for our SC’11 clients. We can coordinate private, VIP or all conference events to elevate your brand or engage your target audience.
Booth property: The two leading booth property vendors in Seattle are Exhibits Northwest and Exhibit Design. If you’ve made it this far without booth property you need to hurry. There’s still time to order a pop up booth with graphics for the event. Exhibit Design offers Owen Media clients a discount if you order early.
Signage: Supergraphics is the largest signage vendor in Seattle. Banners, booth signage, even street light banners are available. In fact, there are 500 street light poles near the Convention Center available for your banners during the month of Nov. Owen Media clients receive a discounts from Supergraphics. Ask for Zac Thorpe.
Printing: Alpha Graphics is one of the city’s largest commercial printers and has a location adjacent to the Convention Center. Ask for Timmy Brewer, the convention sales lead. No discounts but free delivery to the Convention Center.
Photocopies: There is an on-premise FedEx Kinkos at the Convention Center. Sonya Tracey is the FedEx Kinkos contact for convention related print jobs. You will probably get better, more responsive service from Brenda Galang, owner of Golem Copies, 3 blocks from the Convention Center. She’ll provide a discount to Owen Media clients who submit their print orders three days prior to deadline.
