On Thursday, while sitting in the Palm Springs airport waiting for my plane back to Denver, I felt as though I hadn’t yet left the DEMO conference. To one side of the terminal was TubeMogul and to the other were the folks from Kaazing. And let me not forget the dozens of people waiting in security lines and boarding with DEMO tote bags draped over their shoulders.
This conference definitely lived up to my expectations. Out of 77 products, the majority deserved to be there and I think we’ll be hearing more about these over the next several months. While most were impressive, my personal favorites included Visible Measures, Jodange, Leapfrog’s Tag Reading System, SpeakLike and Green Plug.
Congratulations to the following companies for winning the DEMOgod Awards:
