Lincolnshire, Illinois-based LG Electronics announces the opening of its new Chicago Business Innovation Center. Located on the same campus as the company’s U.S. headquarters, the new center is the first in what the company says will be a series of innovation center openings in major cities across the globe.
The company says the new center will give business owners, integrators and contractors a chance to engage and learn about how its line of commercial solutions can contribute to an increased bottom line. LG says it wants to offer its customer base a state-of-the-art training center to ensure its brand representatives are kept up to date on the latest in technology.
In conjunction with the facility’s grand opening, LG Business Solutions has launched a new digital signage format, the 86-inch LG Ultra Stretch Signage display, optimized for dynamic digital content display.
The LG Business Innovation Center will feature various industry zones that highlight LG’s commercial solutions in a real-life application setting. These include display solutions for the Retail and Quick-Serve Restaurant (QSR), Hospitality, VIP and Healthcare sectors, as well as commercial energy and air solutions.
The company’s Retail and QSR zones will showcase large- and small-format LG commercial displays, including LG’s newest launch, the Ultra Stretch Signage 86BH5C, an 86-inch ultra-wide digital signage screen with a 58:9 aspect ratio that can display dynamic content depending on the user’s installation environment.
In addition to the new Chicago LG Business Innovation Center in Lincolnshire the company also just opened the Atlanta Business Innovation Center, located within its newly-expanded U.S. Air Conditioning Systems headquarters in Alpharetta, Ga. Those two centers are the first two in the U.S. and there are seven others around the world: in Amsterdam; London; Sao Paulo; Moscow; Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, Vietnam; and Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
