Computer Kiosks range between large and compact floor standing digital display screens. Touchscreen Kiosk rentals have a PC, monitor, and software built into a locked unit. Touch screen kiosks are best used to display public, non-personal information where minimal level of interaction is required.

Touch Panel Kiosks will attract attendees and keep them engaged due to their simplicity, functionality, and branding and advertising opportunities.
