The "Advantech Intelligent City" was the main theme of this forum. Different solutions booths were set up to show iService achievements, including signage applications in retail, digital hospital and business solutions, intelligent homes, and video surveillance.

The digital hospital booth demonstrated revolutionary healthcare solutions. From the doctor, to the remote operating room, to every single ward, the system was integrated to help care givers collect data, perform analysis and help in decision making. Patients, visitors, and staff used interactive guides to get instant information from digital signage systems throughout the hospital. The entire system was interconnected, delivering consistent information and increasing service efficiency.
