An interactive kiosk is a self-contained unit that can deliver information or promote and sell products and services. It generally consists of a touchscreen monitor and computer with options such as a printer, credit card reader or Internet access. (Think of an ATM that dispenses information rather than money.)
Possible uses of interactive kiosks on the show floor include:
1. Provide controlled access to a company's Web site.
2. Deliver important product and service information to attendees.
3. Provide a vehicle for interactive product presentations (CD-ROMs, Web-based, etc.).
4. Replace a standard PC with an eye-catching, self-contained unit.
5. Enhance a company's cutting-edge image.
6. Help draw curious attendees into the exhibit.
