Demo on your iPad

Normally at the booth I'll connect to a monitor and demo off my laptop. Was at a conference yesterday and realized I'd forgotten my laptop charger. Crap.


Luckily I had my iPad (thanks Bravado). I logged into my demo account and just ran demos off that, it worked amazing!


Rather than being stuck behind a table gesturing at a screen I was able to stand right next to prospects. I could pinch and zoom, even hand the thing over to prospects who wanted to explore product on their own.


Next time you're at a show give it a try!

Great Idea!

I got one of those laptops where the screen bends all the way over and kind of "tents" into a tablet. I had great ambitions of doing demos, drawing, and other stuff and have used it a total of 3 times, each one was just watching movies in bed at the hotel :D

Nice! I'm totally open to this, and just got a new convertible laptop that can act as a tablet expressly because to do this at conferences.ย

Not at all. I'm supposed to go to one in October. As long as numbers stay down I'll attend.ย

Some make you show proof of recent negative test. Not perfect but it helps.

There really is nothing like talking face to face. Was able to give demo to a Ciso if been pursuing for 6 months.

Less things you have to unpack and setup at a show the better. Glad it worked out!

wow this is another one of those things i never thought of but makes so much sense.ย 

Why do one demo on a bigger screen that a few ppl watch but you only talk to one!?

why not create a little more intrigue by having a smaller more personal screen!?

nice work! i love this and Ill be pitching it to my team for our conference at the end of the month.ย

I usually stick with my ipad rather than using my laptop. Though our solution does have a web based component. Just depends on the booth setup sometimes.

Never be behind the table anyway. Itโ€™s good that the mistake turned into an opportunity for you though!
