PR: Press List, Press Conferences, Distributing Press Materials

Exhibitors planning to hold a press conference at ATCE should request an available time.

The press conference room is located in the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, in room 206B. The room is free for exhibitors for the sole purpose of addressing journalists. Reservations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. 

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

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.
