Exhibition Fact Sheet


Three hundred twenty-one organizations exhibited in a record-breaking 157,800 net square feet. Many new products were announced and shown for the first time at SIGGRAPH 96. The exhibit floor was more than representative of the computer graphics market. It was where the state of the computer graphics market was redefined for 1996.

The SIGGRAPH 96 exhibit floor also featured a new innovation: Startup Park. This area was designed to showcase new technologies from small companies hoping to be tomorrow's industry leaders. It offered emerging suppliers of the latest products and services an easy entry into the ever-expanding computer graphics marketplace.

"Our vision for the exhibition is that an attendee can attend a course or a panel and then be able to see the commercial continuation of that same subject on the exhibit floor," said Tom Appolloni, SIGGRAPH 96 Exhibits Chair.
