At this point, you might be asking yourself, “what the heck is DEMO?” As stated on their website: “DEMO is a launchpad for emerging technologies.” DEMO events have been going on for about 20 years. The events provide an opportunity for companies launching emerging technologies to interact with their peers, potential investors, and others interested in their products.

What if you’re not a start-up or aren’t developing emerging technologies? Why should you care about DEMO? The simple answer is that many of the products and services being presented these events will most likely impact you in the future either personally or professionally. So, you might want to pay attention. For example, the following products and services were featured at  previous DEMO events:

What are some of the products being shown at DEMO Fall 2010 that intrigue me? There are several interesting startups. I really like a few of them.

Integrate.com, for instance, is a customer acquisition platform that integrates major media platforms with media buyers.

Particle Code is a cross platform IDE and SDK allowing developers to build and deploy applications to multiple platforms using languages they are already familiar with.

What if you can’t attend the DEMO conference? Check out the website and either watch the company videos that interest you or you can stream it live. Check it out, I think you’ll find it worth your time.
