Developer of interactive music products Beamz Interactive Inc has signed a distribution agreement with Consort World, distributor of special needs and assistive technology products. Consort World has operations based out of Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates.

Consort World will distribute the Beamz Education and Healthcare offering throughout the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) as part of the agreement. The release notes that Consort World supplies its products in more than 16 countries and represents many brand-name suppliers within the areas of special education and assistive technology. Countries reached by the company’s current distribution network include Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.

The release notes that Consort World was founded in 2006 and operates across the MENA region, currently representing more than 28 suppliers within the area of assistive technology, with a special emphasis on eye tracking tools through various partners such as Tobii Technology.

Charlie Mollo, CEO, Beamz Interactive, calls the agreement with Consort World a “bold new step as we enter distribution in the Arabic speaking world. As we continue to introduce Beamz to new markets around the world, we look forward to working with major distributors in their respective regions, such as Consort World and their regarded expertise in the Middle East and Africa.”

Camille Matta, managing director of Consort World, echoes Mollo’s sentiments, adding that the “MENA region is a great new market for Beamz products. In particular, the Beamz Education and Healthcare line is a fantastic way for those with disabilities to experience the cognitive and physical therapy benefits of interactive music technology.”
