Goyang-si, South Korea, November 16, 2018— Held between November 14 and 16 at Kintex (Ilsan, Gyeonggi-do), the International Lift Expo Korea 2018 ended in great success. This is a major event where Otis and some 150 other companies meet with not only experts from the government and public sector and the construction industry but also the general public who are interested in new technologies and products and elevator safety.
At the expo, Otis demonstrated its technological excellence as it showcased Signature Service, IoT enabled Otis ONE™, and the latest service solutions for the first time to customers. Otis also revealed its SkyRise™, Gen2™, Link™escalators, and other product lineups in addition to the cutting-edge digital Compass 360, OptiSense, and eCALL™ app to the excitement of visitors to the expo.
On the first morning on November 14, some 50 Otis Korea and Asia Pacific executives joined the opening ceremony, held alongside the celebration of Otis Korea’s 50th anniversary.
“Since Otis Korea manufactured the first elevator in 1968, Otis Korea has been leading the domestic elevator industry over the past five decades. In gearing up for the next five decades, we’re introducing a variety of IoT enabled products and services at the expo,” IS Cho, VP and managing director of Otis Korea said. “We will take the initiative to provide quality service that leverages new digital technologies to our customers and promotes future growth of the industry.”
“We expect to welcome more than 20,000 visitors to the Otis booth during the expo. I sincerely hope that the Otis employees take this opportunity to take pride in the history and heritage of the company and continue to work toward advancing Otis further into the future,” he added.
