As executive producer Erick Schonfeld's inaugural DEMO event, DEMO Mobile will showcase a carefully selected demonstrator class devoted to mobile computing, which is taking over the world of apps and devices, reconfiguring the consumer, enterprise, social, and commerce landscapes. In true DEMO conference fashion, these handpicked companies will take the stage to provide attendees with a glimpse of where the mobile future is headed.

"Mobile has such a different meaning than it did ten years, five years or even a year ago with advancements moving away from simple mobile phones and into automobiles, homes, wearable computing, gesture-based interfaces, robotics, the enterprise, and more," said Neal Silverman, senior vice president, DEMO. "We are excited to announce DEMO Mobile and to bring focus to the variety of mobile technologies that are shaping our lives -- from work, to play, to health and more."

DEMO recently announced technology media and events veteran Erick Schonfeld as the conference's new executive producer. Schonfeld continues to drive expansion and evolution and takes over responsibilities of sourcing, vetting, and selecting the companies that will present at each DEMO conference in North America. DEMO Mobile is the first conference under Schonfeld's leadership in the continued push to provide the launch platform for today's top innovators. 

"Mobile is sweeping its way through industry after industry and is moving beyond just the traditional smartphones and tablets. Thousands of developers and startups are treating mobile touch screens as a new canvas on which they are literally reinventing computing," said Erick Schonfeld, executive producer, DEMO. "We recognize that many of today's most exciting innovations are focused on the evolution of mobile, and we're thrilled to provide the launchpad to bring those innovations to life." 

DEMO Mobile joins the ranks of other DEMO conferences, including DEMO Fall, DEMO Africa, DEMO Brazil, DEMO China, DEMO India, and DEMO Russia as part of the DEMO Global Launch Network, which provides global exposure through free access to the showcase program at any other DEMO conferences around the world.
