TORONTO--(Marketwire - February 24, 2011) - Marketwire announces a multi-year partnership with the DEMO Conferences, the world-renowned "launchpad for emerging technology and trends," to provide communication solutions that include the distribution of DEMO press releases from launch companies and the provision of DEMO's online press room.

Marketwire is looking forward to providing DEMO participants with the ability to take their presentations, content and product pitches beyond the conference floor and deliver them to media, investor and consumer audiences around the world."
