48th DAC: Atrenta, Cadence and SpringSoft Sponsor Free Exhibits Floor Passes and I LOVE DAC campaign
Wear an “I LOVE DAC’ pin to be eligible to win a $600 Apple gift card
LOUISVILLE, Colo. – May 25, 2011 – Offering a unique opportunity to enter the 48th Design Automation Conference (DAC) for free, Atrenta, Cadence, and SpringSoft are sponsoring three-day exhibits passes through the third annual ‘I LOVE DAC’ campaign at DAC. DAC is the premier conference devoted to design and design automation of electronic systems. The conference and exhibition will be held at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California, from June 5-9, 2011.
“Let’s face it, DAC is the centerpiece event for EDA users and EDA suppliers,” said Mike Gianfagna, vice president of marketing at Atrenta. “We are delighted to be working alongside Cadence and SpringSoft to bring more deserving folks onto the show floor at DAC. I only wish we could afford to buy tickets for everyone. So I encourage people to hurry and sign up now before the supply of free passes runs out.”
“As a leading event for the EDA industry, DAC gives attendees the opportunity to experience the latest advancements in design automation,” said Todd Lenz, vice president of global marketing for Cadence Design Systems. “In an industry where collaboration is fundamental to design success, it’s important that we make the DAC exhibits accessible to as many people as possible. The cooperation of Atrenta, Cadence, and SpringSoft will help realize that goal.”
“SpringSoft is thrilled to sponsor the 'I LOVE DAC' program for the third consecutive year. DAC is an event that the design community shouldn't miss out on, so anything we can do to make it more accessible is good for users, vendors and the industry,” said Thomas Li, marketing director at SpringSoft.
