Using various delivery methods like on screen QR codes, text messages, emails, or even physical print outs; a wayfinding kiosk
can effectively broadcast loads of information about the user's surroundings.

. This lobby kiosk
can tell guests about entertainment and dining options in the area and even assist in making reservations or purchasing tickets.
