In December, LAVA attended the Self-Service Innovation Summit (SSIS) in Hollywood, FL., and we made some valuable connections.

The trade show focused on self-service technologies in a variety of industries, such as mobile payment kiosks, ATMs and vending machines.

LAVA was uniquely positioned to cater to these markets as our SimulCharge products offer a more versatile and often less expensive alternative to a turnkey solution. Some attendees we spoke to didn’t realize their kiosk needs could be reached with a tablet and the right adapter. Others were searching for a more flexible (and sometimes portable) setup than an all-in-one solution could provide.

We received great feedback from these attendees and expect to turn some of them into our future customers.

Keep an eye out for us at future trade shows this year, especially as we release new products in the coming months.
