This is just based on what info I have found in various places. Because I would like to go also.

I would take different versions of your tapes to Siggraph, drop the well rounded ones with the smaller companies. They need a jack of all triads most likely. The larger companies you can ask what they need or know beforehand what they are on the look out for right now, so thin you tailor the demo for them. Research and take notes on a lot of the companies that you think will be there.

At Siggraph, make sure you try and hook them in the first 5 seconds. This is way important there. Because they get a lot of tapes in a short amount of time, and I would think most of them sure in heck are not going to pay airfare or bother shipping them to home base just so they can shelf or get ride of them latter. They will try to weed out fluff there before going back to where ever. If they have a lot of them, they might only play there first little bit. If it doesn’t grab them, they might not bother looking at the rest.

Maybe I'll see you there. I would like to go this year.
PS be sure to find the parties !!
