Minalogic to take 7 SMEs to DAC 2016



Minalogic will participate in the Design and Automation Conference (DAC) for the second year running, this year taking a delegation of seven SMEs to the event on June 5–9 in Austin, Texas.

The trip is funded in part by the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes regional government under Minalogic’s international development plan.




Promoting Minalogic member SMEs at the event

Minalogic will promote this year’s crop of member SMEs at the event on all of the cluster’s communications materials (website, newsletter, social media) to help spark interest before and during the trade show, helping them get maximum leverage out of their participation in this major event.


Minalogic will also produce a brochure, to be distributed at the trade show, presenting the seven participating SMEs and their unique know-how.


Finally, the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes regional government will give financial support to five SMEs from the region to offset the costs of attending the event. The concerned SMEs are eligible for funding from the region under Minalogic’s international development plan.
