In addition, the new facility’s café, boardroom and training center are not only practical-use spaces, but also areas that demonstrate HARMAN solutions in restaurant, corporate and education settings.

“With the Experience Center, we can now take conversations with our customers off tradeshow floors and into our facility to give customers and influencers a deeper and more meaningful experience all day, any day of the year,” said Erik Tarkiainen, Vice President of Global Marketing, HARMAN Professional Solutions.

The Experience Center is open by appointment only to HARMAN and Samsung (parent to HARMAN) customers, employees, distributors, sales representatives, dealers, artists and other industry professionals for meetings, performances, productions, hospitality events and more. The new facility joins a worldwide network of HARMAN Professional Solutions Experience Centers in Singapore, China and soon in London.
