Inclusion in Official Press Release
If your company is planning to make an announcement leading up to or at Interop, we can help you increase exposure through a press release detailing exhibitor news, to be distributed one week before the event on Monday, September 14. See last year's press release as an example.
Instructions on how to participate are available in the Exhibitor Portal. The deadline to submit is Friday, September 4, 2020. Please note that submissions cannot exceed 50 words and no marketing copy will be considered.
If you would like to participate in this opportunity but not release specific details of your announcement, we can accommodate you.
The Interop Media Center is available for registered media and analysts to hold briefings with event Sponsors and Exhibitors. Should you need a separate room for recorded interviews, please contact [email protected].
Media Center hours and location will be available closer to the event.
