I don't think you should be focusing on brands so much as new tech. There is nothing more disappointing than watching an SIA video of a product line that is exactly the same it was a year before just with different graphics. Don't get me wrong seeing new graphics is cool, but I can always browse their site a couple months later. At SIA you can really help the most from getting us the specs we want to know but are rarely shown on company sites, such as rocker profile shots.
With that being said I'd like to see more from companies that aren't talked about too much anywhere like head and elan -especially with their tbt, yes it's been around for a while but I can barely ever find anything about it.
