Schedule a Press Conference

Exhibitors planning to hold a press conference at OTC should review the available time slots and then reserve an available time.
The room is free for exhibitors for the sole purpose of addressing journalists. Reservations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
When reserving a time slot, please provide the following:
  • desired time slot
  • title of press conference
  • names of speakers and job titles
  • 50-word description of press conference
  • special technical needs

If you hold a media event outside the press conference room, we strongly encourage you to notify OTC. We will post this information in the OTC Press Room to inform the media of your designated meeting areas, press conferences, receptions, or product demonstrations.

Set-up of OTC Press Conference Room

The OTC press conference room is located in Room 406-407, level 2, in NRG Center. It is located next to the press room, for the journalists' convenience.

  • Seating Arrangement - The room is set up theater style with a stage with 6 seats, microphones, and a tabletop lectern at the front. Seating is available for up to 54 people.
  • Audio/Visual - The room is equipped with an LCD projector and screen, multiple laptop PC connections, and microphones. Additional audio/visual equipment may be ordered, but is the responsibility of the exhibitor.
  • Provisions - Catering may be ordered through the official OTC catering provider, Aramark. This is the sole responsibility of the exhibitor.
Tips for a Successful Press Conference
Please keep in mind that holding a press conference does not guarantee that the media will attend.
  • Be sure your announcement is significant and newsworthy.
  • Target media that would be most interested in your products or services with an invitation to attend your press conference or schedule an interview with a company spokesperson.
  • Make sure that a company spokesperson is available to answer any journalists’ questions.

Connect with Journalists

OTC will have approximately 400 registered press in attendance.

If you are hosting a press conference or an event at your booth, consider sending a media advisory pre-show, inviting journalists to your event.

You can download the final list of pre-registered press, here. A final list of press in attendance will be made available at the end of the event.
