44th DAC a Success with Attendees and Exhibitors

SAN DIEGO, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—June 7, 2007— The 44th Design Automation Conference (DAC), the electronic design automation (EDA) industry's premier event, has attracted thousands to the San Diego Convention Center this week. Preliminary numbers indicate total attendance has surpassed 5,100 so far this week, with attendees visiting the nearly 250 exhibitors represented. Today, 74 percent of this year's exhibitors committed to booth space for next year's conference to be held in Anaheim, Calif., June 9-13, 2008, with several requesting larger space for next year.

"Feedback from exhibitors has been extremely positive so far and there is a sense of optimism and energy on the exhibit floor," said Steve Levitan, 44th DAC General Chair. "While fewer people took advantage of Free Monday -- which was one of the big contributors to the attendance at last year's conference in San Francisco -- it is clear that the movers and shakers are all here."

"DAC continues to be the primary occasion each year for Magma to have a significant number of customer meetings in a short period of time," said Milan Lazich, Vice President of Corporate Marketing, Magma Design Automation, Inc. (Nasdaq: LAVA). "The industry can expect to see us in Anaheim next year."

"DAC has been fabulous for GateRocket. We were highlighted by both Gary Smith and John Cooley as 'a hot company to see at DAC,' driving traffic to our booth," said Dave Orecchio, President and Chief Executive Officer, GateRocket. "We will always remember the 44th DAC for the launch of GateRocket and RocketDrive, which has really taken off at DAC. We appreciate the special opportunity DAC has provided us."
