TORONTO, CANADA – Nov 14, 2019 – ARHT Media Inc. (“ARHT” or the “Company”) (TSXV:ART), the global leader in the development, production and distribution of high-quality hologram content through its patented Holographic Telepresence technology, beamed a live hologram of ARHT CEO Larry O’Reilly to the 2019 Northwest Event Show (NWES) in Seattle to demonstrate the technology’s application for the meetings, conferences and events industry.
Mr. O’Reilly, who was at ARHT’s studio in Toronto, was captured and transmitted in real-time to Seattle for the launch of this year’s show on Nov 13, 2019. Introduced by, and interacting with, NWES co-founder Stuart Butler of Butler Events, Mr. O’Reilly spoke about the benefits of Holographic Telepresence for the event industry. He gave examples of how ARHT’s technology is creating memorable experiences for audiences, many of whom show higher levels of engagement, greater interest in the subject matter and better recall of content – in many ways it’s more compelling than actually being there in person.
In attendance at the keynote session were over 400 participants from a number of leading companies like Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook and Boeing to name a few, many of which have already followed up with ARHT Media for various future applications.
“What a great experience it was interacting with Larry, it felt as though he was here with us,” stated Stuart Butler, co-founder of NWES and Principal of Butler Events. “This technology opens up so many more possibilities for event producers and planners to bring in speakers from all over the world and have them connect emotionally with their audience.”
Following his conversation with Mr. Butler, Mr. O’Reilly went on to introduce Julius Solaris, the keynote speaker for NWES’s opening session. Solaris is founder and editor of EventMB.com, and has been named one of the 25 most influential individuals in the Meetings Industry by Successful Meetings Magazine.
“When I first spoke with Stuart he was so excited about bringing our technology to his conference because he had experienced it first hand not too long ago and it made a major impression on him” stated ARHT CEO Larry O’Reilly. “This is yet another example of Butler Events being on the forefront of event production and finding new and powerful ways to connect with audiences.”
With a growing number of successful activations at meetings and conferences around the world, ARHT continues to make significant headway within the events space. More and more often event producers tell ARHT that the impact of the hologram was more powerful than having the presenter there in person, and their clients are saying the same thing.
Produced by Butler Events, The Northwest Event Show is the region’s largest trade show for event and business professionals. The show offers a chance to see first hand how the events industry is evolving. Through a series of speaker sessions, networking opportunities and showcases of innovative products and services for the events space, NWSE is the place to find everything one needs to have meaningful impact and transform one’s next event.
