Working with industry analysts is one of the more complicated tasks of product marketing and public communications. It is also one of the most elemental requirements for refining and focusing your product and company positioning and keeping the strategic side of your business moving forward and in synch with industry trends.
I've just come back from a major trade show where we had several industry analyst briefings. Here's a white paper you can download which outlines working with this important public in your communications outreach.

If you are exhibiting at a major tradeshow, make sure you contact the tradeshow organizer 90 days in advance of the show in order to maximize your potential for media coverage before, during and after the event.
Here is an example what the CTIA Show that takes place in March offers PR firms and companies in order to support your media relations efforts.
Tradeshow organizers work hard to help their exhibitors maximize media coverage from the reporters, bloggers, and industry and financial analysts who attend these types of venues.
Make sure that before you launch a product or service or make a company announcement you do your homework in advance.
Most tradeshow organizers aggressively recruit print, online and broadcast news organizations from business, consumer, entertainment, telecommunications and IT beats.
And leading up to the show, most tradeshow organizers distributes press releases and media alerts announcing keynotes, important conference sessions, major exhibits, special events and other "official" activities surrounding the show.
With all the advance planning you do, make sure you are registered as the right media representative so you can be sure to get the pre-registered press list.
It's always good to go to the CES Show in Las Vegas just to make sure that there are still real booth bimbos
en force. I could not tell who the pictured person show here was with, but I am sure that somehow the message of next generation technology does not quite translate here.
And not to be outdone, these are not necessarily in the bimbo department, but here are the models from Vonage
who are doing some type of 60's go-go boots theme.
