DEMO, the technology launchpad conference co-produced by VentureBeat, kicks off next week in Palm Springs. Companies will be launching new products in five key areas: Mobile, social media, consumer, cloud, and enterprise.

My boss, VentureBeat Editor Matt Marshall, is about to head down to Palm Springs. For the past two conferences, Matt shared the stage with longtime DEMO executive producer Chris Shipley, but this is his first time leading the conference solo — keeping things running on-stage, and more importantly, selecting the presenters.

We’ll be covering every one of the launches here at VentureBeat starting Sunday night. For now, here’s the list of companies. Most of them are giving the full DEMO presentation, but we’re also bringing back the AlphaPitch program we inaugurated last fall, where early-stage companies give 90-second presentations on their products.
