 The bonita RTU showroom is a place where researchers, young and experienced alike, can demonstrate & promote their unique ideas or developed solutions.  In addition to the equipment for onsite presentations, a special video booth is also built in the showroom to allow visitors to share their idea with the greater scientific community. The video booth is an enclosed cabin outfitted with equipment to record, upload and transmit their presentations online. An HD video camera records the presenter while document scanners and digital input devices allow the presenter to upload presentation materials.

The opening of the bonita RTU showroom was held on October 6, 2011 as a special session of the 2nd International workshop on Intelligent Educational Systems and Technology Enhanced Learning (INTEL-EDU 2011), in connection with the 10th International Conference on Perspectives in Business Informatics Research (BIR 2011).  Thirty nine participants from 12 European countries (Austria, Belgium, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Poland) took part in this event. During this session, physical exhibits in e-learning, e-logistics, robotics devices; virtual interactive platforms and virtual showroom concepts (web-based solutions) were presented to the participants. At the showroom opening, bonita representatives Leonid Novickis, Tatiana Rikure, Aleksey Jurenoks, Mihail Sotnichoks from RTU and Antanas Mitasiunas of Vilnius University, briefed visitors about the bonita project mission to  promote and transfer innovations in ICT across the Baltic Sea region.
