If you are a technology supplier and want to present at the conference your presentation must include performance data rather than just claims.  To encourage adoption of your technology an honest pros and cons assessment should be included; outlining where the technology is good and where it wouldn’t apply. Alternatively, why not ask your client to present, or do a joint presentation to support your claims?
