OFC FIRST NEWS: New Product Preview

Are you planning to launch/show a new product, service or solution at OFC? Don’t miss an opportunity to have it included in the OFC First News guide. OFC First News is a comprehensive new product, service, partnership and company announcement guide distributed to media and analysts leading up to OFC show for use in writing their pre-show coverage and scheduling briefings at the event. This guide gives exhibitors the opportunity to give media and analysts advance information on corporate announcements leading up to and during the event. In addition to distributing the guide to registered media and analysts, OFC partners with leading technology analysts to review the announcements and provide members of the media with an exclusive, real-time analysis of the industry trends and technologies that will be announced during OFC.

Appropriate information includes company, customer and partner announcements; new product announcements; product enhancements; research initiatives, etc. Beginning in March 2024, we will distribute two issues of the OFC First News guide to pre-registered media and analysts communicating exhibitor news and events.
