ITI VR Takes Home Innovative Product of the Year Honors at 2018 LEEA Awards

In early November 2018, ITI sent Christina Lanham, Director of Operations, and Jacklynn Burbank, Training Solutions Advisor, to the 2018 LiftEx & LEEA Awards event in Milton Keynes, UK. The world of heavy industry includes a wide variety of companies that specialize in construction, civil engineering, utilities and manufacturing, health and safety, and road and marine transport, just to name a few. LiftEx is the only dedicated lifting event where you can find representatives from every heavy industry under one roof.

ITI partnered with Crosby UK to provide demonstrations of the ITI VR crane simulator. Event attendees from around the world were able to experience how virtual reality can be used to enhance any operator training program. The responses from those able to demo the simulator were resoundingly positive. Many were in awe of the realistic immersion of the simulator, and the virtual environment, while at the same time maintaining a small physical footprint with the ITI VR Desktop Hardware option.

The LEEA (Lifting Equipment Engineers Association) awards dinner took place during the LiftEx event as a celebration of the lifting industry's greatest achievements. ITI VR outlasted five other nominees in the Innovative Product of the Year category.
