47th DAC Announces Preliminary Attendance Numbers

Well-Qualified Attendees, Focus on the Entire Design Ecosystem, Appeal to Thousands

ANAHEIM, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 18, 2010 — The 47th Design Automation Conference ( DAC), the premier conference devoted to electronic design and design automation, attracted thousands of attendees this week at the Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, CA. Companies in the embedded and electronic systems level (ESL) spaces, as well as major foundries, participated at unprecedented levels in all aspects of DAC: on the exhibit floor, in the technical program, and in DAC’s Management Day and Embedded/SOC Enablement Day.

“This was definitely a ‘turnaround’ DAC; the year the design ecosystem became a reality on the floor,” said Gary Smith, president of Gary Smith EDA. “Everyone I spoke to mentioned how well-qualified the attendees were this year. I think big companies from across the electronics spectrum sent their most knowledgeable engineers, especially in the embedded and ESL areas.”

“We were very pleased with the traffic that entered our booth this year,” commented Rob van Blommestein, director of marketing communications for SpringSoft, Inc. “We gave a record number of demos and were able to use DAC as a venue for strengthening our relationships with our key customers. Overall, this year’s DAC exceeded our expectations.”

Preliminary attendance figures for the 47th DAC break down as follows:

  • Total full conference: 1554
  • Total exhibit attendees: 3444 (24% international)
  • Exhibitors, visitors, and guests: 2557
  • Total attendees: 6001

“The Executive Committee adopted a twin policy this year of ensuring that DAC stayed economically viable and, at the same time, ensuring that we had more decision-makers than ever in attendance,” said Sachin Sapatnekar, General Chair of the 47th DAC. “We were fortunate to achieve both objectives, and feedback from exhibitors and technical program attendees indicates that the level of interest on the floor was higher than it has been for several years. Many thanks to our sponsors, volunteers, exhibitors, and technical contributors: with your help and involvement, DAC continues to be the flagship event in our field.”
