TRUMBULL, CT (January 24, 2006) – The KioskCom Conference & Tradeshow (KioskCom), the defining global event for interactive self-service business solutions, announces its 2006 conference and tradeshow will be held April 10-12 at The Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas, NV.

Building off of a highly successful 2005 event, KioskCom 2006 expects that over 2,000 participants will register, continuing as the most critical, strategic, largest and longest running conference and tradeshow for kiosks and self-service, worldwide.

Named twice as one of the Fastest 50 growing events in North America, KioskCom delivers critical content and strategies to ensure kiosk success – directly from end-user companies that utilize kiosks within their organizations. This year’s sessions and workshops are designed to deliver the strategic insight and first-hand lessons necessary to address and solve an organization’s business challenges.  

“Companies need to find ways to improve their margins – and kiosks provide that avenue” said Lawrence Dvorchik, KioskCom’s General Manager.  “Generating additional revenues, improving the customer experience and solving the critical operational and labor issues are all at the forefront of organization strategies.  KioskCom is the only place that delivers the strategic insight required from the people that have faced these dilemmas in their organizations.  Attendees will hear from other people that are – or were – in their same situation, who used kiosks to successfully provide the solutions to improve their margins.” 

Representatives from some of the world’s most recognizable brands will be on hand to discuss critical issues involved in attracting and retaining customers through self-service programs.  Speakers and topics currently confirmed for this years keynote presentations include:
