Visionect with JOAN at Midwich Technology Exposed: Room booking that gets you into a Mercedes AMG

Visionect, 16 Oct 2017

Visionect attended Technology Exposed 2017, October 11–12, the flagship event of the year hosted by JOAN’s Official Distributor for the UK, Midwich Ltd. Happening at Mercedes-Benz World, Surrey, the final tally saw over 1,000 visitors, never-before-seen products and cutting-edge technology from Midwich vendor partners. At the event, Visionect officially released its JOAN Board, an advanced 13-inch room scheduling display from the line of JOAN meeting room booking solutions, for the first time for the UK.

Developed on Visionect’s revolutionary Place & Play signage concept, JOAN Board is a breakthrough product, disrupting the signage market with its simplicity and ease of use.

Since it is a completely wireless display, it can be installed anywhere, running uninterrupted for up to 12 months on the amount of energy used to brew a single cup of tea.

JOAN Boards shows up to 9 meeting rooms, their status (Vacant/Occupied) and location, effectively solving a problem for reception areas and lobbies, providing information to employees on the go when they need it the most and acting as wayfinding for guests coming in for meetings.

During the showcase, guests could see JOAN Board devices in action and have their picture taken wearing an assortment of funny accessories and then popping their head through a giant JOAN Board canvas, which earned one lucky winner, Samantha Bews from Pacific Ltd., a 1-Hour Mercedes-Benz Driving Experience with the animalistic Mercedes-Benz SL 63 AMG.

JOAN's Mercedes-Benz competition included bravery, funny accessories, and some luck.
