How can I request a Show & Tell demo slot for my app?

  • Please contact us and describe to us which app you’d like to present. The app needs to be new (or significantly upgraded) by the time of the conference, i.e. released in the August - September timeframe. Our first round of selections will be from first time presenters and purchasers of Early Bird VIP passes.

  • There are no costs other than a regular attendance ticket for doing a Show & Tell demo.

  • Selected Show & Tell apps will automatically compete for a Visual 1st Award.

How do you select apps for the Show & Tell slots?

  • We try to have a balance between apps that cater to various use cases. We don’t want any particular category (such as camera apps, print apps, collage apps, etc.) to crowd out the other ones.

  • In addition, to promote diversity, we especially encourage female presenters to apply!

Is the Awards jury involved in selecting the Show & Tell slots?

  • No, the jury will only decide who receives the Visual 1st Awards from among the 30 apps that will be presented in the Show & Tell sessions. Likewise, we as organizers are not involved in determining the Award winners.

What if my app is not selected for a Show & Tell presentation?

  • You can still get exposure for your app by uploading your app trailer on our sample attendee apps page. The earlier you register, the higher your app’s position on this page.

  • This way, anybody who is considering attending or who is planning their networking at the conference can check out your app in advance!
