NRA is our next show (May in Chicago). Visit our NRA page. We’ll be in the Tech Pavilion in booth 6475

At the show and booth we will have around 10+ companies represented.  We’ll have tablet kiosks from imageHolders and countertop from Pyramid doing Storm Interface accessibility demo. Also an outdoor capable portable digital signage A-Frame. Pitney Bowes will be in the booth to talk service, installation and monitoring for your self-service devices.

Our booth is in the Tech Pavilion again (6475).  If you are interested in a free pass or just reconnecting drop me an email or call (720-324-1837).

We’ll have 10 or so solutions we’ll be demonstrating (we have a larger 10×20).  Kiosks, tablets, menu boards, service/installation and accessibility. Information on the show is best viewed on the NRA site here.
