ALO ALTO, CA – will exhibit its Beam remote presence device during the InfoComm 2013 trade show June 12 – 14 in booth #1491 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. The three-day exhibition attracts over 35,000 qualified buyers from the international audiovisual, information technology and communication industries searching for diverse and robust products and solutions.
“We look forward to building off of the excitement generated from our CES and SXSW showings by sharing our technology with the incredible community of AV, IT and communications professionals at InfoComm 2013,” said Scott Hassan, Founder and CEO of Suitable Technologies. “Our team has been working very hard to build an effective, reliable, world-class remote presence system, and we can’t wait to show how natural Beam makes remote face-to-face interaction to the forward-thinking companies that gather at InfoComm.”
In the short time since launching Beam for sale last November, Suitable Technologies has garnered widespread media coverage for its cutting-edge product and intriguing show floor plan. Among the fans is famed NBA All Star, Shaquille O’Neal, who chose Beam to invest in during the “Pitch Shaq” campaign hosted by Tout at SXSW.
“As a remote presence company, we promote remote working among our employees, and that extends to the trade show floor,” says Hassan, referring to the Suitable Technologies booth that is populated by more workers in remote “Beam form” than workers–usually a lone Hassan–in physical “meat form,” the company’s tongue-in-cheek reference to local users. “At first glance I’m the only person in the booth,” he says, “but it doesn’t take long before visitors feel comfortable interacting with our remote personnel. We frequently hear that person-to-Beam engagement feels very ‘real’ because it is. We consider it a success when the technology simply fades into the background.”
Suitable Technologies is a Palo Alto, California company that develops world-class remote presence technologies. Its first product, Beam, allows people to travel instantly and is designed and manufactured at Suitable Technologies’s headquarters in Palo Alto. Suitable Technologies is a spinoff from the personal robotics company, Willow Garage, also founded by Scott Hassan.
