NeoProducts & beyondblue Round Australia Roadshow

An amazing accomplishment !

After 50,000 kilometres and 500 events in 350 towns, the ambitious 16 month beyondblue roadshow has ended. It has brought inspiration and education about coping with depression to tens of thousands of people in remote towns and communities throughout Australia.

And NeoProducts' touchscreen technology was there on the journey

In early 2014, NeoProducts donated touchscreen technology to the roadshow, to enable beyondblue to display a number of interactive videos specifically to allow people to share their personal experiences.

Neo’s touchscreen technology worked faultlessly throughout the journey. At each stop, a touchscreen panel was literally magnetised to the outside of the bus, so that visitors could interactively access programme information.

Throughout the 16 months and the climate extremes of Australia, the touchscreen never missed a beat.

Fittingly, the last town on the 16 month road trip was Healesville, where an event was organised by Neo’s General Manager – Lindsay Frost. With the Gold Logie winning actor John Wood as MC - beyondblue and the Lions Club of Healesville shouted the town a “night out”. The theme was “Connections Matter “, focusing on the importance for mental health of maintaining connections with your friends and your community.

NeoProducts is proud to have been associated with such a worthwhile project.
