PRESS RELEASE

A new milestone for The IT Press Tour with more than 2000 press coverage for 60 participating companies*

 

With this key barrier exceeded in term of press coverage, The IT Press Tour enters in a new era just a few months before the 9th edition on the East Coast

 

Paris, France - June 29, 2012 - The IT Press Tour, a media event launched in June 2010, today announced that it generates more than 2000 Press coverage for 60 companies on 8 editions. This new outcome validates the model and the concept, perfectly aligned with company needs and press expectations. The EMEA press group is composed of 15 top journalists coming from UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and Sweden meeting and visiting IT companies during one unique week in US.

 

"2000 is a magic number we're really pleased to announce, it confirms that our model is the right one", said Celine Coustaut, co-owner of The IT Press Tour. "The tour solves a gap between EMEA press and US IT companies, delivering real value for both groups and a perfect echo room for new technologies."

 

This is again illustrated by several company leaders. John Spiers, CEO and Founder of NexGen Storage, validates the concept: "The IT Press Tour is a great event. It's nice to have all the key press people on one room. A very sharp and knowledgeable group." And Kumar Saurabh, co-Founder and VP Analytics of Sumo Logic, confirms the outcome and the adoption: "The IT Press Tour was the most engaging one hour talking product details with press, we need to do it again."

 

The next edition - the 9th - of The IT Press Tour will take place on the East coast end of September and the 10th tour will occur in San Francisco and Silicon Valley in December 2012.
