People celebrating at conference

Don’t miss out on this exciting “game-changing” session!

ATP’s Innovation Fast-Pitch will offer attendees a chance to witness revolutionary technologies, products, or services that could be “game-changers” for the industry. The selected finalists for the Innovation Fast-Pitch must try to convince the judges that their innovation is the new upcoming technology, product, or service in the assessment industry.

ATP’s Innovation Fast-Pitch selected finalists will be invited to pitch their innovations to you, the conference audience in a judged session on the Innovations in Testing main stage during the Day 2 General Session. The judges—tough, industry leaders—will search to find the best innovation that the fast-pitch participants have to offer. Whichever way the pitch may go, attendees will be glad they watched the unpredictable presentations of the ATP Innovation Fast-Pitch inventors and entrepreneurs.
