Digital Signage Expo (DSE), the world’s largest and longest running international conference and tradeshow dedicated exclusively to digital signage, interactive technology and digital out-of-home networks (DOOH), today announced that its ninth show held last week at the Las Vegas Convention Center has officially shattered previous records, set a new attendance milestone and reinforced DSE’s position as the digital signage industry’s preeminent show.
While additional specifics will be forthcoming, show management has just confirmed that new all-time benchmarks established last week include:
- 4,024 qualified attendees (excluding exhibitors) – a 9 percent increase over 2011
- Record conference attendance
- Record international attendance from a total of 69 countries
- Record exhibit sales: 62,440 net square feet – a 4 percent increase over 2011
Chris Gibbs, president of Exponation, LLC, which produces Digital Signage Expo said, “Not only was the show a success by all quantitative measures, but the quality and number of end-users who attended helped create a positive energy that kept the show floor humming right up to the ‘closing bell’ on Thursday.” He added, “Attendees were working the show floor harder and longer over the two-day event, which confirms the fact that attendees come to DSE to find the information they need.”
