    Salt Tank


    Do you have a special product, service or idea that you’d like to share with UDOT Annual Conference attendees? Make our JAWS drop and get a few minutes in the limelight…….

    Throw your hat into the ring for the UDOT Annual Conference Salt Tank event!

    We’re looking for exciting, engaging and knowledgeable speakers to share a 30-second “pitch” of their product or company followed by a quick two minutes to present on a product or idea.

    Then, Salty judges will have two minutes to ask questions.

    Awards will be given to the best presenters!

    Please keep in mind:
    • This will be a fast-paced, heavy hitting presentation that should be carefully crafted… NOT just a routine slide deck!
    • Each presenter should provide a giveaway item of nominal value that they creatively distribute during their presentation!
    If you are interested in this opportunity, please fill out this form by Friday, October 15, 2021! Any conference attendee may submit this form. However, due to time constraints, only approximately 18 contestants will be selected.
