When Europe looks to the future, it’s impossible to overlook Germany. The concept of Industry 4.0 was born here, IBM just opened its IBM Watson global IoT headquarters here, and we’re seeing here too consistent demand for our groundbreaking immersive visual collaboration technology from leading companies and partner integrators.
So on a gorgeous spring day in May we officially opened our first office in Germany, in Munich. German speakers will enjoy a peek at the video.
The comfortable 9th-floor space is filled with natural light and flanked by balconies for taking in the expansive views of the city skyline and the Alps in the distance. More than 150 guests joined us to celebrate the opening and to get a taste of the digital workplace of the future and the role of our innovative solutions in shaping that future.
Mezzanine showrooms in this new office feature several system configurations scaled to address the use cases of presentation, collaboration, and real-time situational awareness for enterprise workspaces large and small. At the event, invited media, specialist planners, system integrators, company representatives, and many other interested parties were clearly delighted to experience the technology first hand.
The open house offered a relaxed atmosphere and provided plenty of opportunity for conversation and making new contacts. Oblong CEO John Underkoffler joined the festivities from Los Angeles (via Mezzanine, of course) to officially welcome the crowd. It’s rumored the last guests stayed past midnight. Thomas Spiegl, Sales Director for Oblong Europe handling the D-A-CH region, concluded: "We are delighted to be open. The enthusiastic reception by our guests here shows us that the workplace of the future has already arrived in the minds of companies."
