    demonstration? (about a web conference)

    Before holding a web conference, we will conduct a demonstration using the equipment that will be actually used in the web conference.

    In the above sentence, does "a demonstration" sound natural?
    It's conducted to cofirm beforehand that the devices will work appropriately.

    The meaning is clear, but I'd say '...we'll have a run-through' or '...we'll give the equipment a trial run'.

    I am not a teacher.

    Or, you could say that you will be having a rehearsal.

    So, "demonstration" is not very natural, isn't it?

    A demonstration occurs when one knowledgeable or experienced person shows others how to do something.
