TORONTO, June 16, 2022 – ARHT Media Inc. (“ARHT Media” or “ARHT” or the “Company“) [TSXV:ART], the global leader in the development, production and distribution of high-quality and low-latency hologram and digital content, beamed the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, to the stage of four of Europe’s largest tech festivals. Zelensky addressed top tech entrepreneurs, investors and corporate leaders at Stockholm’s Brilliant Minds, London’s Founders Forum, Amsterdam’s The Next Web and Paris’ Vivatech, from Ukraine.
President Zelensky delivered his message remotely via a lifelike hologram on Thursday, June 16th, 2022, from an undisclosed location in Ukraine. The President compelled the region’s most influential innovators to donate financial and technological resources to begin rebuilding Ukraine. The speech also highlighted how Ukraine continues to develop, and Zelensky pledged to make digital transformation central to his nation’s rebuild.
“We wanted to enable the President to share this important message via hologram and 3D avatar to exemplify the world-changing innovation the tech community is capable of delivering,” stated Brent Hoberman, Co-Founder and Executive Chair of Founders Forum Group, “and to inspire our network to develop and deploy new technologies that can help rebuild Ukraine.”
“President Zelensky’s speech was incredibly passionate and moving, and our hologram technology made the delivery of his message all the more impactful,” stated Larry O’Reilly, CEO of ARHT Media. “As the Ukrainian people face such a challenging time, I am proud to know that our HoloPresenceTM technology was able to help amplify his message of resilience and courage on behalf of his country and its people.”
