7-Minute Live Demos

7-Minute Live Demos

Transparency was the first event in the freight industry to successfully launch a high energy, live product demo format, with no vaporware or PowerPoint presentations allowed. Over the course of our 3 day event, we will be featuring over 60 live, 7-minute product demos from the industry’s leading technology and solution providers. Small groups of demo presentations will be interspersed across all 3 days along with high profile keynote speakers, fireside chats and industry expert panels. This format allows the audience to see exactly how these technologies work while hearing how they can be used to transform the industry. It is a perfect format for both startups and leading freight technology companies to get their products in front of potential customers, media, prospective partners, and VCs.
