SO, what exactly is an Innovation Showcase?
An audience-driven, industry-specific 2-hour live web event. Innovation Showcases, convened by industry pilot groups, think tanks or associations, help you see emerging solutions you can implement today. So, your timeline from technology discovery-to-deployment is compressed by months or years --all with no cost to attendees, vendor bias, sales pressure or travel. Sponsored by organizations like NIST (National Institute for Standards and Technology) and NEEA (Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance) who encourage initiatives that result in industrial sector Innovations.
The "Un-Webinar". When was the last time a webinar held your attention and actually delivered something immediately actionable? More often than not, you sit through death by slides with little opportunity to interact with presenters and get what you really need out of the time you've committed. Our events change all that. With detailed pre-registration needs-gathering to inform event structure and content, online live-chat and discussion during the event, and TV-like live production values, the end game is to get you actionable answers to issues you're trying to solve.
Industry-Vetted Topics. Our industry pilot teams, begin by prioritizing their shared mega-issues that might be solved by as-yet unknown innovations. Using our patent-pending team consensus tools, the pilot teams then review and select the finalist-suppliers that present at the Innovation Showcase.
Tailored presentations to maximize relevancy. Once suppliers are evaluated and selected, they are coached on industry needs-and-wants so they can tailor their presentations to keep relevancy high. Events are designed to equate to the focus and specificity of a fourth meeting. The suppliers arrive knowing what you want. They won't bore you with techno-speak. They simply address the problems -- as defined by industry -- and then demonstrate how their innovations deliver those solutions, all in the fraction of the usual time needed.
All Showcases Include:
- APPLICATION AREAS – The latest advances and technology applications
- BUSINESS CASES – Fast ROI, increased efficiencies, improved quality, lower operating costs
- DIFFERENTIATION– High efficiency, low maintenance, long useful life, low total cost of ownership
- A FULL RANGE OF TECHNOLOGIES – from new, emerging ideas to vetted and efficient existing systems
No vendor bias. We are technology agnostic -- facilitators, not influencers. The end result is a streamlined solution selection process free of vendor agendas or sales pressure, facilitating accelerated emerging tech connections to today’s market-ready innovations.
