In most cases the participants will arrive one day early, so they have two full days to prepare and to overclock the living daylights out of our components.

Due to limited resources, we cannot make these events open to the public, but we welcome all media and industry people who would like to attend. If you’d like to attend one of the international events, please email pschmid [at] bestofmedia.com. We are happy to accommodate all requests in the order they arrive. We had a number of friends and family attend our US trials and everyone seemed to have a very good time.
