When Ace of Base sang “I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes” with their number one hit “The Sign” in 1993, they had no idea how eye-opening the namesake of their song would one day become. Now, over twenty years later, technological advances in the Internet of Things (IoT) and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are leading to digital signs that don’t simply catch your eye, they interact with consumers, gather data, and so much more.
The endless possibility these advances entail for signs and the retail market are the focus of the Digital Signage Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center, March 28–31, as well as our recent webinar, “Reaching Shoppers in the Moments That Matter.”
What Is #DSE2017?
Since 2004, when it became the first event of its kind, Digital Signage Expo has highlighted advances within the booming industry of the digital signage market. It is now the largest trade show, with the longest history, that puts a focus on signs and features over 200 exhibitors from around the world showcasing hardware, software, delivery, and content for the present and future of digital signage.
Attended by decision-makers looking for signage solutions for both customer- and employee-facing organizations, the show offers an unprecedented opportunity to learn and get ahead of the market with dozens of pre- and post-show events, seminars, educational roundtables, and more.
Implementing Digital Experience Platforms
With web-savvy shoppers who are more informed than ever before, it’s crucial for retailers to connect with them using the best content possible. Technological evolutions now offer retailers unprecedented ability to deliver cohesive messaging across websites, mobile apps, and digital signs with digital experience management platforms. Whether you’re at DSE or not, Intel wants to help you prepare for and understand the advantages of digital signage.
