BC Wireless and New Media Demo Day

Posted by Victoria Revay

It's Demo Day on Thursday, April 30th, so come check out the 50 select companies that want to showcase their most innovative applications or services to you. 

The purpose of the Demo Day is to allow the community to take stock of its wealth of applications and services and determine how best to present them to the 30,000 business delegates and 3,000 non-accredited media that will be in Vancouver over the next year.

Some of the buzz worthy exhibitors include Tangible Interaction's Alex Beim and Nowpublic's Mike Tippett.  You can also see Work at Play's application that allows fans to converse directly, in real-time, with athletes, artists, or brands around rich media. Need more? Learn about the #1 "Reference App" for the iPhone: the voice recognition search app from Canpages. The demos are one component of a joint, industry lead initiative of WINBC and New Media BC together with the 2010 Commerce Centre and the British Columbia International Media Centre at Robson Square.
