Announcing "The GIANT Demo Stage"

Do you have an innovative health care product or solution you want to showcase to a large international health tech audience?

Show us what you got! Live 5 minute technology demos are a major feature at The GIANT Health Event 2017. And we do mean LIVE; to be video filmed and live-streamed around the world.

Sometimes demos are standalone, but they're often interspersed into larger panel sessions with commentators reflecting on the demo and how they believe it fits into health care.

We review submissions on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you're uncertain that your product will be completely ready at the time of GIANT ‘17, let us know of your interest and it's not unusual for us to show products in early stages, too!

To learn more please send me an email.
