Media Advisory/Interview & Photo Opportunity - One Millionth SMART Board Rolls Off Production Line

SMART hits milestone with continued commitment to assembly in Canada

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 11, 2008) - SMART Technologies announces its one millionth SMART Board™ interactive whiteboard will roll off the line at approximately 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 12, 2008 at the company's largest assembly and warehousing center located at 501 Palladium Drive, Kanata, Ottawa, Ontario.

This achievement marks a significant milestone for the interactive whiteboard product category and distinguishes SMART as both the category pioneer and leader with the best-selling interactive whiteboard in history. For over 20 years SMART has been steadily expanding its Ottawa-area operations to meet increasing global demand for its wide range of popular education, training and collaboration products. SMART is best known for its flagship product, the SMART Board interactive whiteboard, which the company introduced in 1991 as the world's first interactive whiteboard. The Ottawa area has consistently been the largest assembly and distribution location for SMART and in October 2007, the company opened a 260,000 square foot, purpose-built facility in order to meet growing demand from over 100 countries where SMART products are sold. SMART intends to remain in the Ottawa region as the area continues to serve the company's needs for skilled employees and access to markets.
