How Do We Keep the Prices Down?
The KISS principle keeps costs down. For instance, we don't send full color material on shiny paper to every list we can rent. Instead, we send simple, factual information on plain paper to our proprietary list; we send very specific direct mailings to interested qualified people and we work closely with other related professional organizations.
We focus on our themes: Communications Security Information Security Investigations Technology
Per booth, we register 4 to 9 times as many people as the broad, general security shows - yet, our booth rental fee is less than theirs.
The prospects we bring you are knowledgeable and interested. Unlike the attendees at those very big shows, our visitors are not looking for one or two technologies among thousands exhibited; they're interested in the technology we focus on.
Our sponsors are all active in the field. Their activities and publications promote this show and its exhibitors in advance throughout the year.
Our terrible experiences at shows that take your money for the booth, but leave you for hours on end with no one to talk to but other exhibitors led us to originate many innovations to make the show better for conferees and exhibitors. These special features include:
Staggered starting times for workshops in the different tracks,
No more than two (of three) track meetings at the same time - therefore 1/3 of conference registrants are available to be in the exhibit hall through the day -- in addition to those attending the exhibits only.
To ensure that participants arrive early and stay late we schedule no-charge panel discussions on exciting subjects before the exhibit hall opens and an evening program after it closes.
