VWB Expands International Marketing Reach to Europe
Marketing Agreement with Kast Telecom, S.A. Spearheads European Expansion
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, March 22, 2005 -- Video Without Boundaries, Inc. (OTC: VDWB), a pioneer in the emerging broadband media device market, today announced the signing of a Marketing Alliance Agreement with Kast Telecom S.A. (France). This agreement marks the first step toward VWB offering its full range of industry-leading MediaREADY(TM) products throughout the European market. Under the terms of the agreement, Kast Telecom will be responsible for initiating Reseller, Licensing and OEM relationships in France and assisting VWB with introductions throughout the European Union.
This agreement culminated after months of discussions with Kast’s co-founder, Rafic Abou-Fadel, who has been an instrumental figure in shaping the European telecommunications industry. Mr. Abou-Fadel led the recent merger of Kast Wireless Network with Swisscom’s Eurospot Wireless Network. The merger created the combined default leader in the WiFi(TM) (Wireless Fidelity) telecom industry for Europe.
Mr. Abou-Fadel has served as Vice Chairman of ETNA (European Telecoms & Network Association) (www.etnafrance.org) since 2000. ETNA is the largest French Professional Telecommunication Organization (+120 members) through which Abou-Fadel maintains close relationships with the ART (Regulatory Authority) in France as well as main telecommunications principals in Europe. He has strong ties with the French Senatorial Telecom Commission as well as the Telecom Commission at the French National Assembly. During his tenure as the Vice Chairman, ETNA has become one of the largest European telecom associations.
“Our association with Mr. Abou-Fadel and Kast Telecom S.A. will immediately open the door for VWB to pursue significant industry relationships and penetrate Telco and reseller markets in the European community,” said Jeffrey Harrell, President and CEO of VWB. “Having laid the groundwork for success here in the United States, we are now ready to expand into foreign markets.”
“I am excited to play a part in bringing the VWB MediaREADY products to Europe,” Mr. Abou-Fadel commented. “My experience, contacts and understanding of the European marketplace when combined with the exceptional VWB product line will put us in a position to create a tremendous amount of opportunity throughout Europe.”
Kast Telecom intends to promote the full range of MediaREADY products including its innovative Flyboy portable media center.
