At SC08, Industry and Research Exhibits from the world's leading companies and organizations will be showcased in a dynamic, interactive environment. High performance computing, networking, storage, analysis, data management, scientific visualization and collaborative technology will be featured.

The Exhibit Hall will Attract the High-Quality Buyers

The SC Conference attracts scientists and engineers, software developers, policy makers, corporate managers, CIOs and IT administrators from universities, industry and government agencies. Of these attendees, 71% travel more than 1000 miles to attend the conference and 27% travel from outside the United States. For 28%, SC is the only conference and exhibition they will attend this year.

Why Exhibit?

For 20 years the SC Conference has been the gathering place for researchers and decision-makers from all areas of high performance technology. Nearly 10,000 attendees from around the world will converge at SC08 to learn about the latest innovations in high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis. No other event provides such breadth or such opportunities for interaction.

The SC Conference is the industry’s only focused conference program. The exhibit floor is a featured part of the conference, giving attendees the opportunity to learn first-hand about the tools--your products and services--they need to stay at the leading edge of their professions.

Overall for the SC Conference, 77% of attendees have a buying influence that is defined as having the final say, specify the supplier, or recommend the purchase for the products and services exhibited. The average planned expenditure is $2.8 million, with a median of $500,000. Last year, three-quarters (77%) of attendees reported that they found new companies to do business with on the SC exhibit floor. And 58% of attendees came from organizations with 500+ employees.

Attendees say they come to SC specifically to “see new products and developments.” These are the prospects you need to meet!
