January is the NRF 2016 trade show in New York. This year looks to be busier than ever for self-service and signage. I did a count of exhibitors and it over three pages long. Retail lockers and automation are going to be high on the list of attention again this year.
I’ll be there (big thanks to Pitney Bowes and Tom Hartmann) and if you want to meet up let me know. I’ve published a preview that lists most of the booths I will be stopping by to visit. There are the usual suspects as well like Intel, Dell and Cisco. I was going to say HP but there are not exhibiting this year. “Used to be” they had a massive booth. It’s interesting to see who has and hasn’t budget.
UPDATE: Some of the other activities I’ll be doing include likely meetings Traci at Olea Kiosk, also Jorge with Alveni, the folks in Elotouch will be busy with the KeyMe kiosk and also have new 22″ tablet enclosure from RedyRef and I’ll visit with them. Also I have a stop at the KIS booth (Kiosk Information Systems) one of my old companies and will visit with some of the people there. Good company good stuff.
CES is in Vegas is this week. The big news and products I am looking to see are the ones concerning home automation.
And March in Vegas is the new Self-Service Pavilion at DSE. This is brand new concept and brings together 24 companies in the self-service space.
Later this month we’ll provide photo tour of NRF from self-service context.
