Globalpress Electronics Summit2011 Dates Announced

Focused, Congenial Setting for U.S. Semiconductor Companies and International Journalists to Meet

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - September 15, 2010) -  Globalpress Connection (, a global public relations agency for the high-tech industry, will hold the Globalpress Electronics Summit2011 (, its 9th annual summit event, from March 28 to 31, 2011, at the Chaminade Resort in Santa Cruz, Calif.

"The Globalpress Electronics Summit events continue to grow in prestige and overall value for both the U.S. semiconductor companies and the Asian and European journalists who attend," said Irmgard Lafrenz, president of Globalpress Connection. "Budget cuts and general economic pressures are forcing companies and media to rethink how they work, and the Globalpress Electronics Summit is proving to be highly effective for both sets of participants."

The Globalpress Summit provides U.S. electronics companies with a cost-effective, efficient and focused way to launch new products, announce updates and new initiatives, and forge closer ties with leading journalists from Asia and Europe. For the international press delegations, the Globalpress Summit offers a chance to meet C-level executives from about 30 newsworthy U.S. technology companies in a concentrated forum.

For the Globalpress Electronics Summit2011, Globalpress will maintain the new services it debuted at the 2010 Summit, including:

  • Production of multimedia
  • Professional studio video interviews
  • Live blogging during the Summit via Twitter, Facebook and other outlets
  • A Globalpress channel on YouTube, with highlights of keynotes and panel discussions

Keynotes by top U.S. semiconductor executives, including Altera, Mentor Graphics and IDT, are part of the program.

Globalpress estimates that compared to a worldwide press tour to Asia or Europe, its events cost only 1/10 as much and require about 1/10 of the time -- just 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.
