Quick 2015 DAC Recap and Racing Photo Album
June 11th, 2015 by Graham Bell
This years Design Automation Conference in San Francisco was excellent! You don’t have to take my word for it. At the Industry Liaison Committee meeting for DAC exhibitors on Thursday June 11, the various members were in agreement that show traffic was up, and the quality of the customer meetings exceeded expectations. Why is that? It is in large part of due to the tremendous efforts of Anne Cerkel senior director for technology marketing at Mentor Graphics, who was the general chair for the 52nd DAC.
One innovation at this year’s show was opening the exhibitor floor at 10 am. This made it more convenient to see the morning keynotes and also more flexibility in commuting to the show from around the Bay area. I think you can expect to see this again at the next 53rd DAC show in Austin Texas.
Our two GRID racing car simulators was one reason the show was excellent for Real Intent. We were able to draw a large crowd to our booth. Budding race car drivers could challenge their friends and colleagues to a race and enjoy our license-to-speed verification solutions. A special thank you to Shama Jawaid and the team at OpenText who was our partner for the license-to-speed promotion.
Here are some quick photos from the show for you to enjoy.
