The event will also feature Intel and Microsoft, who will jointly present a 40-by-40-foot “Touch Experience Lounge,” which will serve as a hub in the center of the exhibit floor. This feature is an extension of Intel’s ongoing “Experience Tour,” visiting 14 North American cities this fall, designed to help attendees become more familiar with the devices, applications and capabilities facilitated by a touch-based paradigm. The exhibit will introduce business drivers and real-world usage scenarios at a comprehensive “device bar,” including assorted Microsoft Windows 8 models, which will teach resellers how such items can best be incorporated into their customers’ businesses.
