Digital Signage Expo Invitation-Only Fall 2011 Forum “Worth the Time”

Digital Signage Expo (DSE), the world’s largest international tradeshow and conference dedicated to digital signage, interactive technology and digital out-of-home networks (DOOH) held its third Industry Forum last month in San Diego, Calif. Because both guests and event sponsors came away feeling that DSE’s Forum was well worth their time the next Forum event will be held in late Spring 2012.

DSE’s Industry Forum Program brings together an array of vendors to meet the needs of guests who have confirmed that they are planning a significant investment in digital signage technologies within 12 to 18 months. Guests who attended the two-and-a-half day event claim that the experience not only saved them time in their planning and due diligence process, but also allowed them to fully vet their respective project challenges and rethink their direction. All came away with new ideas for enhancing their projects with the latest technologies and enjoyed the networking opportunity with peers and industry experts.

The two-and a-half day invitation-only event requires no out-of-pocket cost for guests with qualified projects, and includes educational workshops, motivational industry keynotes, provides networking opportunities, employing “speed dating” techniques to provide quick introductions, as well as relaxed social gatherings to make it easy to build rapport and establish relationships.

The director of Concession Management for JetBlue Airways who attended last week, said:

“I found DSE’s Forum event absolutely beneficial, particularly the ability to make new industry contacts and the concentrated educational program geared to my challenges. Investing the two days will help me more effectively manage the process toward execution. Anyone who plans to initiate a DS project should definitely attend.” - Mitch Nadler, director, Concession Management, JetBlue Airways
