It has been a few weeks since TechBrief 2018 took place in Arlanda, Stockholm. After the event, attending press left the airport filled with input on new exiting products and technologies from participating brands – and many of them with great video footage from the event…
This year, several media were doing interviews and recording video on-site – and now we start to see the results of it.

We will keep our eyes open for more TechBrief coverage in the weeks and months to come – and we encourage all brands that participated at TechBrief to do the same:-)
While we are counting the days until TechBrief 2018 kicks off in Stockholm Arlanda Airport, we received the fantastic news last week that also SteelSeries will join the event with their cool gaming peripherals.
With SteelSeries on board, the line-up for this year’s event now counts 10 top brands within gaming and consumer electronics.
More than 30 editors have already signed up, and we are in dialogue with many others – and they can all look forward to an eventful day when the doors to TechBrief 2018 open on October 11.
The brands that we proudly present this year are:
The summer is at it’s peak – and so is the planning of this year’s TechBrief event, which takes place on October 11th in Arlanda Airport in Stockholm. This year, we are thrilled to present a strong brand lineup counting both “experienced” TechBrief participants and newcomers:

Large-scale one-day event
Based on input from last year’s participants, TechBrief 2018 will once again be held as a one-day event to increase the value of time for brand representatives. The concept remains the same – a day of great networking with a minimum of 35 Nordic tier 1 editors. All practical matters are taken care of by the TechBrief team; you just have to pick your focus and show up.
Individual presentation + joint exhibition

TechBrief was held last Thursday, 12th October 2017, and was yet again a great success! A total of 40 editors and 9 brands travelled to Arlanda Airport in Stockholm to attend the 5th TechBrief. The participating brands presented and showed off various consumer tech products, and editors from all over the Nordic interviewed the brand representatives and explored the products.
TechBrief 2017 is now over, and what an interesting and fun day! The day began with the participating brands giving a 20-minute presentation to the participating editors. The brands both presented new and existing products as well as new tendencies within the tech field.
After the presentations the brands got to show their products at the joint exhibition, while the editors got to network with the brand representatives, make interviews and have a closer look at the showcased products. The showcased products ranged cases, mothercards, drawing products, USB bolts, wifi extenders, keyboards, tvs and laptops… We also enjoyed watching Acer’s caricaturist draw the participants.
As something new, TechBrief was this year held as a one-day event instead of a two-day event, and it was a great success. The exhibition space was bigger, but the intimate atmosphere was maintained and there was still enough time to talk to everyone.
Not only was TechBrief an interesting day for us at Related, brands and key media also got to network and arrange reviews. The great editor appearance bear witness that more coverage about TechBrief and the participating brands will come, so keep an eye on the participating media news feed the upcoming weeks – we sure will do too.
A week before TechBrief 2017 kicks off we are happy to announce the final event agenda and confirm that 9 brands will be present at the event – and at least 38 editors spanning 28 Nordic media.
TechBrief 2017 is taking place next week, and we can now proudly announce the updated brand list. This year’s brand list consists of 9 strong brands: all are well-known for their consumer tech products.
This year’s participating brands are:
• Cooler Master
• Ben Q
• Creative / SoundblasterX
• Kingston / Hyper X
The brands will give an exciting 20 minute presentation about new products or technologies or other tech-related stuff, and the rest of the day is dedicated toto interesting dialogue and networking with leading brands and media within the tech field. You can check out the updated TechBrief 2017 agenda here.
At the moment we have conformation from 38 Nordic tech editors, spanning 28 media, so every brand has great opportunity for coverage. We expect conformation from more editors this week, and the final media list will be announced a couple of days ahead of the event.
We will be posting more news about TechBrief on this blog.
As today, it’s exactly three months left before the date we all is very excited and looking forward to is here; October 12th. And that date is of course when the exclusive TechBrief 2017 open its doors to exhibitors and media in Stockholm.
Right now, we have the strongest line-up ever since TechBrief started 4 years ago. And more international consumer brands will be added as we get closer to the event.
- Cooler Master
- Kingston Technology
- Blue Microphones
This year it will be slightly different from previous years. It will be 1 day exclusively, and that day is going to be filled with presentations, technology, media meetings and networking. Around 40-45 consumer tech-media editors from all Nordic territories will excitedly take part of the consumer product launches, all the new technology, and to feel the great vibe that TechBrief spreads.
The TechBrief team is really looking forward to seeing and meeting both brands and media soon.
After TechBrief, 45 Nordic editors left Arlanda filled with input on new and interesting products and technologies from the 10 participating brands.
Now – one week after the event – we begin to see these input turn into great coverage of the brands and products showcased at TechBrief. It is important to emphasize that TechBrief isn’t a shortcut to some fast coverage; rather it should be a long-term investment with the aim of establishing media relations; where brands and editors can meet face-to-face in an informal setting and build valuable relationships.
Nevertheless, it is great to see that many of the editors conduct thorough reportages and news articles in the wake of the event, which we would like to share with you.

We know that more media have articles and videos in the pipeline, so we will keep a close eye on their news feeds in the coming weeks (and we encourage all participating brands to do the same).
Seeds were planted for some great future coverage; interviews were given, products where filmed, reviews coordinated. And not lest; new relationships between brands and editors were established, which we hope will grow and thrive in the future.
The brand line-up was the strongest ever and over 40 editors participated when TechBrief kicked off for the 4th time in Stockholm last week. Close to the terminals of Arlanda, the stage was set for editors to be presented with the newest products and technologies within the world of consumer electronics.
On October 11th and October 12th the conference rooms at Radisson in Arlanda Airport were once again filled with the very special TechBrief atmosphere. The time had come for the biggest tech press event in the Nordics to take place for the 4th time.
Editors from all the Nordic countries flew in to a content packed day where the participating brands each delivered a 20-minute presentation – the brief – to the attending press. After lunch the TechBrief product exhibition opened with exiting product demonstrations, trend discussions and product tests coordination.
TechBrief was – just like the years before – held over the course of two days; on the first day representatives from the Danish and Norwegian tech and lifestyle media were participating, on day two, Swedish and Finnish editors were invited.
Strongest line-up ever
2016 came to be the year with the strongest TechBrief line-up of brands to date. The line-up counted both brands that had participated at previous TechBriefs such as BenQ, Razer and SanDisk; yet also debutants such as TP-Link and Blue Microphones took part in this year’s event.
This resulted in record high editor attendance.
– During two days 45 Nordic editors visited TechBrief. We are happy to see that both brands and editors are supporting TechBrief year after year, and this merely confirms that TechBrief is a solid event concept that is of value to all parties, says Related CEO, Henrik Koch.
Less footwork for brands
Also the participating brands seemed satisfied with the event:
– TechBrief allows us to target all the key Nordic journalists from four countries in just two days. The fact that it is held in one location and in the airport reduces the amount of time spend – and footwork for us. The event format is relaxed and allows for personal contact with journalists without the hectic atmosphere that the big trade shows offer, explains Darragh O’Toole, who is Marketing Manager at SanDisk and participated at TechBrief for the third time.
