One of only 10 companies selected; more than 500 industry professionals to attend
DENVER, July 2, 2014 -- Gamma 2 Robotics ("G2R") (www.Gamma2Robotics.com), developers of the world's first commercially available security robot, announced today that it has been invited to host a roundtable session at the 2014 National Sports Safety & Security Conference ("NCS4"), July 8 - 10 in Indianapolis, IN (www.ncs4.com). One of just 10 companies selected, G2R will contribute to this year's theme of "The Business of Sports Safety & Security" by illustrating the role robots can play at sporting events. Already the preeminent industry gathering, the 2013 conference drew a record 500 attendees, comprised of sports venue operators, managers, security and safety staff, first responders, government agency representatives and league/association professionals.
"The NCS4 conference and its audience represent an ideal opportunity to introduce our Vigilant robot to decision makers in an enormous market," stated G2R President and Co-Founder Jim Gunderson. "Our invitation to host a "mini-conference" further validates our product and its application.
"As the 2013 Boston Marathon tragedy demonstrated, the sports industry needs substantially more - and more effective - security. With 277 million tickets sold to paid events alone each year, the challenges to keeping spectators from harm are enormous…and only growing greater. Our robots can ready a venue in advance of an event, confirming vendor identities, noting and reporting suspicious items and we are working on modules for detecting traces of explosive vapors."
