If you were in Las Vegas at the end of March and casinos weren’t your mission, it’s a good bet you were in Sin City to check out some advanced signage technology. Intel was in attendance at the Las Vegas Convention Center for the fourteenth annual Digital Signage Expo, the world’s largest and longest-running trade show focused on the growing digital signage technology industry. Making digital experiences starts with Intel, a mentality highlighted at the Intel booth with numerous product demos and solutions. Intel’s Global Director of Visual Retail and Digital Signage, Jose Avalos, hosted a keynote luncheon as well — all efforts pushing Intel’s role in the boundless possibility digital signage tech will deliver to the retail market.
If you weren’t able to attend DSE 2017, here’s what you missed.

Adroit Worldwide Media’s (AWM) Automated Inventory Intelligence shelf solution showcased reliable inventory tracking and audience measurement. When it came to reaching audiences via shelves, AVA’s Retail SmartShelf solutions were all about engaging and educating. And CIVIQ’s WayPoint Public Kiosk, built on Intel’s Public Kiosk architecture on two interactive screens, as well as Zivelo’s Interactive Kiosk, displayed exciting new ways of attracting customers.

Intel’s DSE 2017 Events
