Subject: EclipseCon Press Initiative


EclipseCon is fast approaching and all indications point to a very exciting conference.  We are expecting a number of member companies to issue press releases during the week.  To help our member companies increase the exposure of their announcements, we have put together a number of supporting press initiatives.  Schwartz Communications, the Eclipse Foundation PR Agency, will be assisting with many of these initiatives.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact myself or Schwartz at eclipse@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.



Press Room and Interview Room

A press room will be located in the conference hotel.  Companies will be able to leave press kits and press releases in this room for distribution to the attending press.  We will also have a private room available for companies to arrange interviews with the press.   This room can be reserved on a first come first serve basis but will be limited to 4 – 30 minutes slots per company.  A signup sheet for the interview room will be located in the press room.


Eclipse Community Press Release and EclipseCon News Portal

The Eclipse Foundation plans to issue a press release Tuesday, March 1 featuring the companies issuing press releases at the conference.   We will also list all of these press releases on the EclipseCon web site.  Schwartz Communication will be coordinating these initiatives.  If you would like to be included in this press release and on the EclipseCon web site, please e-mail a short 50 word synopsis of your release to eclipse@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.  The synopsis needs to be received before February 18, 2005.  A final link to your press release needs to be e-mail to eclipse@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx by 1:00PM EST February 28, 2005.  Please note Eclipse will not host the actual release, we will just list a link to the press release posted on your corporate site.

The Eclipse Foundation is happy to provide supporting press quotes to any member company’s press release.   If you would like to include such a quote, please send a draft version of your press release, including a draft quote attributed to Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director, Eclipse Foundation.  To ensure approval in time for the conference, the draft press release needs to be e-mailed to eclipse@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx before February 22, 2005.  As a reminder, the Eclipse Foundation does not endorse any commercial products.
