Introducing Flash Memory Summit “Pitch Party” Theatre

2018 Schedule

An exciting addition to the Flash Memory Summit. While we often ask tutorial speakers to tone down “blatant sales pitches,” the FMS Theatre encourages them. It is located in the exhibit hall and designed especially for demonstrations and sales talks. Trumpets, trinkets, and other theatrical props are completely welcome, but we will still draw the line at “large animals.”
