Kaon Interactive Now Three-Time Winner of EXHIBITOR Buyers Choice Award

Creating Innovative Solutions That Help Marketers Differentiate Products and Solutions

MAYNARD, MA--(Marketwire - March 25, 2010) - Kaon Interactive, Inc., creators of 3D interactive sales and marketing solutions that bring products to life, was again recognized with an EXHIBITOR2010 Buyers Choice Award. The Kaon v-Connect Pro took this year's honor, marking the third consecutive win at the premier conference and exhibition for trade show and event marketers. 

With the touch of a button, the Kaon v-Connect Pro brings a live expert from anywhere in the world into a collaborative audio/video session on the Kaon v-OSK (a Buyers Choice Award-winning touch screen appliance). Unlike any other solution today, both the expert and prospect share, in real time, complete control of the Kaon application and its tightly integrated, cohesive product and solutions stories consisting of 3D virtual product demonstrations, interactive flow diagrams, videos, data sheets, slide presentations and more. The Kaon v-Connect Pro also features a virtual, interactive whiteboard that allows participants to spontaneously illustrate a particular solution or architecture, collaborating exactly as if they were in a conference room together. Now, instead of sending company experts around the world to participate in sales presentations and tradeshows, the Kaon v-Connect Pro saves companies not only in direct costs of flights, hotels, and other expenses, but experts' extremely valuable time.

Produced by EXHIBITOR Media Group, EXHIBITOR2010 took place last week in Las Vegas. Kaon was one of six products to be recognized from 38 entries in the show's New Product Showcase. Consideration included innovative design, broad-based application, and whether or not the new product would enhance the job of an exhibit or event marketing professional.

"Once again, we're extremely honored that one of our Kaon products met the high standards of the product showcase," said Gavin Finn, president and CEO of Kaon Interactive. "EXHIBITOR is the defining show for the trade show and exhibition industry. At Kaon, our commitment to customer success drives us to continuously innovate to help marketers better differentiate products and solutions while cutting costs."

Kaon's solutions deliver a more engaging and compelling customer experience by cohesively weaving together 3D virtual product models, interactive flow diagrams, PDF documents and PowerPoint presentations. By incorporating Kaon's 3D technologies into a tradeshow exhibit, manufacturers are able to cut shipping costs by requiring fewer physical products to be present, which also reduces trade show booth staffing needs and drayage costs, all of which offer a far 'greener' approach to the exhibit process.
