About DEMO

DEMO is a semiannual showcase of startups and new products in Santa Clara, Calif. On October 2 and 3, 2012, we hosted more than 75 new tech products and companies aiming to change the world in mobile, enterprise, cloud, social, and consumer markets. Read the news from the conference here. We’ll also be posting videos of the highlights soon.

Produced by IDG Enterprise in partnership with VentureBeat, the DEMO conferences in the United States, China, Brazil and Singapore focus on emerging technologies and new product innovations. The DEMO conferences have served as the launchpad for companies such as Palm, E*Trade, Salesforce, Webex, Tivo ,VMware and Fusion-io and thousands of others.

The DEMO Scholarship Partner Program, subsidized by corporate sponsorships, offers multiple scholarship opportunities to deserving entrepreneurs.
