What is the Developers Showcase and Networking Reception

The Developers Showcase provides a unique interactive opportunity for both large and small developers to obtain feedback on their products and to discuss ideas for new products and enhancements with engineers, rehab technologists, therapists, consumers and others in the field of assistive technology. Products showcased at the Developers Showcase should be under development, new products, and products undergoing redesign for which you are particularly interested in receiving constructive feedback. Participants are welcome from all areas of assistive technology, including hardware/software, AAC, workplace accommodations, Universal Design, seating/position/mobility, transportation, recreation, etc.

Participants must be registered for the conference or an exhibitor. 

The finalists of the RESNA Student Design Competition will also be a part of this Showcase, so come and learn about new, creative and innovative products are being designed by college and university students. 

When & Where 

This year's Developers Showcase will be held at the RESNA 2017 Annual Conference at the Hilton Riverside New Orleans. Room location will be announced at the conference. 


The Developers Showcase and Networking Reception is open to all RESNA conference attendees!


The purpose of the Developers Showcase is to provide an informal opportunity for product developers, researchers and manufacturers to meet with clinicians, RESNA attendees and end users. The showcase provides an opportunity to discuss new technology, as well as opportunities to provide feedback on existing technology, and to formulate ideas for new products. 

How to Participate in the Showcase

The atmosphere for the Showcase is that of a mini-exhibit hall, with each developer having a display table in a large room. At the beginning of the showcase, developer introductions will be made to the group at large in a minute-madness format. Those attending the event are encouraged to move freely about the room and mingle with developers and manufacturers. 

If you are a developer and you have a product you would like to show, please fill out the Developers Showcase registration form (Word) and send it to the RESNA office. You must be either a registered conference attendee or an exhibitor.
