Demo Tables

Demo Table companies also get to participate in the Demo Table Competition, where the Audience Choice Award Winning Company (as voted by the audience at the event) get to pitch their companies on stage for three minutes, and receive feedback from a panel of experts. These 60″x24″ tables are located in the networking areas, and include two chairs, ample surrounding space for a company sign or kiosk, high speed internet and power.
