LG Electronics opens Chicago Business Innovation Center

LG Electronics USA opened its new Chicago Business Innovation Center, a technology hub and educational center for LG’s commercial displays and business solutions in the United States. Located within the U.S. headquarters for LG Business Solutions in Lincolnshire, Ill., the new LG Business Innovation Center is part of the first wave of business center openings for the company, alongside another center that opened in Alpharetta, Ga., at the tail end of 2015.

The new center is designed to give business owners, integrators and contractors a chance to learn about LG’s line of commercial solutions. Sections of the center are tailored to individual markets, such as hospitality, retail, environmental controls and digital signage.

“The Business Innovation Center exemplifies LG’s commitment to ‘innovation for a better business’ in the U.S. commercial market,” said William Cho, president and CEO, LG Electronics USA. “In addition to showcasing LG’s extensive portfolio of innovative solutions across various vertical markets – including the all-new Ultra Stretch Signage display – this center will provide the ideal venue in the heartland of America for LG to hold training sessions and executive briefings for current and future customers, further expanding our B2B footprint in the U.S.”
