For the first time, the Creative Pro User Group (CPUG) Network is holding a Bay Area SuperMeetUp, which will take place on the evening of Friday, June 26 at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose. Held in association with Future Media Concepts and the FCPX Creative Summit, the Bay Area SuperMeetUp will feature a keynote by Randy Ubillos, former chief architect of Final Cut Pro. In addition, the event will include speakers from Blackmagic Design, Adobe, Other World Computing and That Studio.
Doors will open at 5 p.m. for the “Digital Showcase” featuring software and hardware developers including Atomos, Boris FX, FCPWorks, Flanders Scientific, HDDISK, Imagineer, LumaForge, Lumberjack Systems, Pond5, Sonnet Technologies, Telestream and others. During this time, attendees can network with industry peers, talk to leading manufacturers and learn about the latest trends in collaborative editing workflows for postproduction and broadcast markets. Presentations will begin at 7 p.m. and continue until 11 p.m.
According to the CPUG Network, a SuperMeetUp is a smaller and more intimate version of a SuperMeet that limits attendees to 350. Like a SuperMeet, the event provides the post and broadcast community an opportunity to learn about latest technology trends and to network and share industry news and opportunities in a social setting.
SuperMeetUp attendees are not required to register or attend the FCPX Creative Summit. SuperMeetUp attendees can also benefit from a 50 percent-off single-night discount at the nearby Fairmont Hotel. Early Bird tickets may be purchased online only for $10 (general admission) and $7 (students and teachers) at the nearby Fairmont hotel. Early Bird tickets may be purchased online only for $10 (general admission) and $7 (students and teachers) until June 9, when prices increase.
