ARHT introduced holograms to over 1,200 professionals at one of the largest gatherings of professional speakers in North America.  ARHT generated a significant amount of leads directly from a key target audience and established a strong partnership with the National Speakers Association.

(“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, announces that it was a featured technology for an important keynote address at this year’s National Speakers Association's (NSA) annual conference, INFLUENCE 2019, that took place from July 27th to July 30th, 2019 in Denver, Colorado. 

Working in association with keynote speakers Mike Rayburn and Daniel Burrus, ARHT delivered lifelike pre-recorded holograms of the two for their opening session. As part of their presentation, Mike and Daniel interacted with their "future holographic selves" and highlighted how holograms can help speakers further monetize their platform and achieve future success.  

“Opening our conference with holograms elevated the experience for our attendees. Working with ARHT Media to showcase technology that can be used by our members in their businesses provided an opportunity for our members to learn how they can reach their audiences in a creative way but also remain relevant and cutting edge in an ever changing industry,” said Ceré Netters, Director, Education & Events at the NSA.

In addition to ARHT's participation in the opening session, they also exhibited their Holographic Telepresence technology for attendees in the exhibit zone.  Allowing NSA members to get a first-hand look at ARHT's holograms, speak to staff about potential opportunities, and take advantage of a special offer exclusive to NSA members.

With ARHT's focus on further expanding into the professional speaking space, the conference served as the ideal opportunity to showcase its hologram technology in front of one of their most immediate targets.

Promising leads from the event included interest by several Keynote Speakers, Regional NSA Chapter Presidents, Church and House of Worship Groups, Executive and Employee Training Groups as well as Universities and Colleges. Additionally, both Mike Rayburn and Daniel Burrus are now promoting holographic speaking as an offering to their clients with dedicated sections on their websites highlighting the opportunity.
