"We continually look for new ways to help lower the barriers for U.S. technology companies to forge ties with European and Asian journalists," said Irmgard Lafrentz, president of Globalpress Connection. "Our Electronics Summit events are already enormously effective -- last year's Summit generated more than 500 articles in leading Asian and European publications on behalf of more than 30 electronics companies -- and our new range of services will add even more value."

Globalpress estimates that compared to a worldwide press tour to Asia or Europe, its events cost only 1/10 as much and requires about 1/10 of the time -- hours vs. weeks of travel. In addition to the cost and time savings, the Globalpress Electronics Summit also eases language barriers by offering translation services when needed.
