The feel you get when you enter the ballroom at DEMO is unlike any other conference. Each company is given just six minutes on the DEMO stage to truly demonstrate how their product will change the world. No PowerPoint or flashy corporate presentations allowed. Just the founders and the technologies many are staking their careers on… it doesn’t get any more straightforward and fast paced than that.
While the DEMO stage is the place to see each technology unveiled, the Demonstrator Pavilion is where the real action is. It’s a perfect environment to network, research, form meaningful and strategic relationships, and—yes—even close some deals. Here, investors and potential partners can get a close up look at the latest trend-setting technologies. It’s not just a place for more face time but for more eyes-on-the-product time. Unlike at tradeshows, no demonstrator can dominate the conference with marketing collateral, signage, whiz-bang graphics, and alluring giveaways. The professionally managed and ergonomic Demonstrator Pavilion is a level playing field. And there is no bad spot on the floor. Everyone has the same visibility keeping the attention laser focused on the products, not on the size of the booth, funding, or corporate backing.
Opportunities abound to connect and interact with the DEMO audience on a more informal level throughout the show. Each DEMO is packed with a number of fun and rewarding networking events to help facilitate audience interactivity – including cocktail receptions every night; a CEO & Dealmakers dinner, where the CEO or founder from each presenting company and the investment community come together over dinner to discuss what the entrepreneurs have been working on; a rockin’ late night Jam Session and a special awards program.
