SIGGRAPH 2013 announces the new Exhibits Fast Forward session, featuring one-minute highlights from participating exhibitors, on Monday, July 22, starting at 3:45 p.m.
Chicago, IL – SIGGRAPH 2013 (July 21-25) at the Anaheim Convention Center in California will feature a new session: Exhibits Fast Forward, where attendees have the opportunity to hear a one-minute highlight of what is new from participating exhibitors.
“This diverse session gives attendees a taste of the Exhibit floor in a very condensed format,” said Mk Haley, SIGGRAPH 2013 Conference Chair from Disney Research. “Even though this is the first year for this event, we anticipate this becoming a favorite, just like Technical Papers Fast Forward. It is a very efficient and entertaining way to hear the latest and greatest from a variety of exhibitors.”
Based off of the perennially popular Technical Papers Fast Forward, Exhibits Fast Forward gives presenters less than a minute to impress the crowd with their product or service and entice them to hear the complete story at the exhibitor booth later in the week. Attendees can expect entertaining and enlightening presentations from many exhibitors including:
- Mcor technologies
- zSpace, Inc.
- Avere Systems
- Prefixa International INC
- French Pavilion by Cap Digital and Imaginove
- Lightcraft Technology
- Vancouver Film School
- Kobold Charakteranimation
