If you have been involved in kiosks we invite you to participate in the Kiosk Industry Group on LinkedIn. The group is a true "focus group" with members purely from the kiosk industry. Members range from suppliers such as HP, IBM, NCR, Frank Mayer, Source Technologies, Olea, Meridian and KIOSK for example to deployer members from Walgreens, Starwoods, Blackhawk Networks, Danube Supermarket, Gilbarco. Research companies such Summit and Frost Research are also members.
