Marriott International trashes telepresence rooms
February 29, 2012 | Hogan Keyser
Marriott and Cisco announced a tie-up in 2009 and together with AT&T rolled out what they called "Virtual Meeting studios" in the chain's international hotels.
But the studios failed to excite punters, with Marriott and Cisco both sending The Register the same statement that cast the installations as a "pilot program" (although that phrase is hard to find in old PR material) and says "... our customers enjoyed enjoyed hundreds of successful meetings during the pilot program. However customer demand was not high enough in all locations so we have decided not to continue operating the Virtual Meeting studios at Marriott International hotels."
