In a bold arrangement with Samsung, the TCT Conference will be providing each of its estimated 12,000 attendees with a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 tablet upon registration at the show.

To ensure that TCT Conference staff are prepared to help attendees configure and operate their Samsung Galaxy Tabs, Spark will build a customized three-hour training program on Samsung Galaxy Tab basics, and deliver it to conference staff on site before the show opens. Spark staffers will then remain on site throughout the show at attendee help stations, providing supplemental technical support to attendees as needed.

This is the third trade show for which Samsung has booked a Spark staffing team. Samsung also booked Spark staffers to work in its booths at the InfoComm trade show in June, 2013, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida (see press release and photos), and at the at the ISTE trade show, also in June, 2013, at the San Antonio Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas (see press release). Spark staffers worked in Samsung’s booths attracting attendees, greeting them, qualifying them and directing them to Samsung employees for more help.
