Today our sales team happily returns home back in Chicago, after a long week of trade shows. Late last week we returned to the annual IHRSA Fitness Industry trade show. Directly after this show ended we traveled north to San Fransisco for the 2017 Hilton ALC – America’s Leadership Conference. This conference had tons of speakers and suppliers exhibit different products, services, & products that can assist Hilton in supplying a higher level of hospitality to their guests across the world.
Hilton and Hospitality industry is looking for innovative ways to engage with their guests, specifically through physical movement and incorporating technology. Hilton is leading the charge by adding fun interactive solutions in 3 distinct areas, that perfectly apply to our Exergaming concepts:
- Kids Activity Programs and Resorts & Family Hotels.
- Fitness and Wellness Areas
- Social Hub Areas for the tech savvy consumer, competitive business traveler, family fitness games in the lobby and common areas, & much more
We brought 2 products to showcase the concept of Exergaming to the Hilton leadership, the T-Wall 64 and the MotionMagix Floor. The T-Wall is the perfect all around example to show interactive fitness, competition, and workouts for Hilton fitness centers. While on the other hand, our MotionMagix unit provided a look a the more interactive side of Exergaming with games and multiplayer options for lobbies or waiting areas. We had a bunch of high-level Hilton leadership stop by and try out the games including, Melissa Walker their Global Fitness Health Director and others! We were very happy with all the people that stopped by to ask questions and find out what all the buzz was all about, and we look forward to keeping these great relationships in Hilton Fitness.
“ I loved the challenges that people took on during the event. It was such fun to see the intensity, good sportsmanship and fun everyone had. Exactly what I want to convey to people about fitness—doesn’t have to be work necessarily but rather fun”
Director, Global Brand Fitness, Hilton Hotels
Below are a few photos of our T-Wall 64 set up in our exhibitor booth at the ALC. To see all of the photos of the conference see our SmugMug gallery here. You can also see the high scores on our “T-Wall Hilton Wellness Challenge” we tracked throughout the show. This was fun to see all of the returning faces coming back trying to beat their score or their friend’s score in the competition.
We look forward to the new opportunities and partnerships that arise from this fantastic conference for years to come. Again, Exergame Fitness is very happy to bring our equipment and games into more hospitality & entertainment applications. We ae always looking to expand the markets and applications of Exergaming and what we can do with it – and this is a perfect stepping stone on that road.
