GHC 19 Technology Showcase

The Technology Showcase is a unique opportunity to exhibit your latest technology and products or services at the GHC Expo. This year, we are expecting 25,000 attendees, all of whom are eager to learn and experience your new products in this dedicated booth space. Technology Showcase sponsors also have the opportunity to take center stage in the Expo Hall and inspire the next generation of leaders!

Technology Showcase Theater

Do you have a new product you would like to share with our attendees? Are you looking for a diverse audience to test out your latest ideas and technology roadmap? The Technology Theater provides a unique opportunity to launch a new product or service in front of a live audience.

The theater is expected to be a top draw again at this year’s Expo. Presenting in the Technology Showcase Theater is an exclusive benefit to our Technology Showcase sponsors. Each sponsor has the option to present for 15 minutes during GHC. Your talk can be combined with product demonstrations. The scheduled presentations will be promoted as part of the Grace Hopper Celebration agenda on our website and GHC mobile app.

Whether you are a Fortune 500 company or Silicon Valley’s hottest start-up, the Technology Showcase Theater will shine the spotlight on your latest products, research, and innovative breakthroughs.
