How to Request a Briefing

Subscription clients have priority on briefings, and can schedule a briefing by just emailing us at

Vendor companies who are NOT subscription clients, may experience longer wait times of up to 2 months to get on our calendar due to the high volume of requests. However, we will reply to all requests once we receive them in the format described below.

To request a briefing please send an email to with the following information:

  • Name
  • Email Address
  • Phone Number
  • Company
  • Type of Briefing (By phone or at our offices in Palo Alto, CA)
  • 1 Sentence Description of your Product or Service

Once we schedule a briefing, we will require the following from you by 5:00 PM PST, the day before the briefing:

  1. Call in line info (If you do not wish to set up a calling line, you can just call our main number).
  2. Names, titles, and e-mail addresses of all speakers/participants from your company.
  3. A copy of any powerpoint slides that will be presented.

If we do not receive these items prior to the briefing, your briefing will be automatically cancelled. If this happens, you will need to restart the briefing request process from the beginning.

Please note that by simply having a briefing with us, you do not automatically become a client and you are not entitled to press quotes or any additional time with our analysts. Also briefings do not represent an opportunity for a “free consulting session with our analysts” so please be prepared to present your products, but do not expect us to develop your business/product strategy as part of this discussion.

You are always welcome to set up a separate consulting session by emailing us at Consulting session begin at $500/session.

Re-scheduling a Briefing – Once we have set up a briefing time, we will understand if you need to re-schedule once and we will try our best to accommodate such requests as much as possible. However, if you try to re-schedule a second time we will cancel your request completely and assume that your management is not really serious about speaking with us.
