Original article – pre-show

We’re pleased to announce that KMA will be exhibiting at the BigShow in NY in January 2019. Booth 1725 on the main floor.

We will have example kiosks (one of them courtesy of Olea Kiosks) and it will be running  application by Appetize.

Get a firsthand look at Appetize’s modern, enterprise point of sale software on Olea’s Austin countertop self-service kiosk at NRF! With the Kiosk Manufacturer Association, we’re bringing cutting-edge self-service technology to the retail industry. Make sure to swing by Booth #1725 to meet the team and get a demo of the product!

A second tablet display will be debuting a new retail application that has recently been deployed by FAO Schwartz.

As part of NRF we will be recruiting participants for our Retail Advisory Council.  Simply put we are looking for companies which have an interest in self-service in general and also accessibility and may or may not have some input for us.  This type of broad input and review is modeled on ANSI standards for process. We hope to see you there.

For more information on Retail Kiosks in general please visit our Retail Market page. Included is recent data by Frost & Sullivan on “Revenue and Unit Shipment Forecast Discussion by Vertical”.  Retail is the largest vertical market for self-service kiosks to summarize.

At The Booth! Nanonation’s newest application makes for a seamless car buying experience – for kids, that is! F.A.O. Schwarz, an iconic toy store, has kiosk-like stations equipped with iPads with an engaging user experience that allows guests to build their own model car. From choosing the body, paint, wheels, and accessories, to the accompanied auto body shop sound effects, the interactive experience is the first part of a two-stage process. In stage two the guest works with the team in the F.A.O. garage to put together the model car they just designed. The collaboration between Nanonation and F.A.O. Schwarz is experience retail at its best.
