This year, we’re making our expo hall completely virtual in the Virtual AI Expo this April 16th. The Virtual AI Expo will feature everything you normally see in an expo hall, such as learning about new AI solutions from vendors, seeing demo talks, and networking with other decision-makers + product makers.
Here’s why the Virtual AI Expo might be the ideal place for you to push your company to the next level and find solutions to the problems that are troubling you the most.

Find New Solutions at Virtual Booths
The field of data science and AI can change rapidly, making it crucial to stay in the know with the latest solutions. Picking up every few months to attend a trade show puts a strain on budgets and planning, however. Managers can keep up with the most current state of the industry and catalog information directly from their work desk. Later, when opportunities arise for new solutions or problem-solving, everything is categorized and easy to find.
In the Virtual AI Expo, you’ll be able to visit 25 booths to learn the latest solutions in AI for your organization. Hear more about the topics you need to get ahead like AutoML, data labeling, DevOps, DataOps, Deep Learning, BI Platforms, and more.
Some partners include:
- dotscience: Dotscience is an AI platform that delivers ‘DevOps for ML’ to simplify, accelerate, & control AI projects.
- DataKitchen: Their DataOps platform automates and coordinates all the people, tools, and environments in your entire data analytics organization – everything from orchestration, testing, and monitoring to development and deployment.
- KNIME: Builds software to create and productionize data science using one easy and intuitive environment, enabling every stakeholder in the data science process to focus on their other job responsibilities.
- Basis Technology: A software company specializing in applying artificial intelligence techniques to understanding documents and unstructured data written in different languages.

All of these new tools are great, but how do they work? During the course of the expo, multiple partners will be showcasing their latest and greatest data science products and demonstrate not just how they work, but how they can benefit your organization. These demos will be applicable to various industries, ranging from finance to healthcare and more. All demo talks will be viewable in real-time, and also on-demand to rewatch at a later date. You won’t be missing out on any of these!

Convenient Communication and Data Sharing
A benefit of expo halls is the pure diversity of partners that attend, meaning there’s a good chance you’ll walk away with an answer to your problems.
When you log in to the Virtual AI Expo, you’ll have quick access to all of the partners attending, including information about their services. Communication is streamlined, so you can just go right to a vendor’s virtual booth, speak with them 1-on-1 as you would in-person, and export your conversation to review all questions and answers later. Conversations can either be via built-in text chat or even a video call (so be sure to dress professionally!)
A popular part of any conference and expo is the chance to network with others in your field. As part of the Virtual AI Expo, you will still be able to network with hundreds of other decision-makers, data scientists, and other AI-professionals in a virtual lounge. Share ideas, collaborate, find a new partner, and explore other possibilities all virtually.
Ready to face the Build or Buy dilemma?
A major theme that decision-makers face when it comes to AI and data science is whether or not to build or buy their data science platform. Do you want to build something entirely from scratch, or work with an existing one and build up from there?
At the ODSC Virtual AI Expo, you will walk away with a stronger understanding of the field and be able to make the right decision for your organization. The partners and vendors attending will be able to help you make sense of what’s best for your specific needs. You might even walk away with the perfect partner and solution for your business!
