sanderson-1VentureBeat is coming to London!

We’re hosting cocktails on Wednesday, Oct 28., at the groovy Sanderson Hotel in London’s Soho from 6 to 8pm. I’ll be in London to moderate at the Symbian mobile conference SEE next week, but wanted to take the opportunity to meet up with local technology entrepreneurs, too. We’re meeting for casual conversation at the Hotel’s Long Bar Courtyard, where we have a private table area reserved with a hostess. Register here.

If you’re one of the first 40 people who show up, you get a free drink (come see me, or just ask the hostess!).

As executive producer of DEMO, the leading conference for technology product launches, I’d also like to meet entrepreneurs interested in showcasing their product at the next DEMO conference.

sanderson-4The next DEMO is on March 21-23 at in Palm Springs, Calif. We’re already scouring the globe for the best companies to select for the next event. We had a meetup last night in Boston, where it was great to see enthusiasm among local entrepreneurs running high. Also there was Jason Carlson, chief executive of EMO Labs, one of the companies that shared the $1 million DEMO media prize during the last DEMO in Sept. He said he’s had spectacular publicity since the event, having had 80 articles about the company.

After London, I’ll return to the U.S. and do more meet-ups around the country, including in New York on Dec 10 at the 310 Lounge at the Bowery (more on that later).

Here’s more about our most recent DEMO event, where 70 companies launched products and announced innovative business plans.
