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), has announced that its tenth anniversary 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.
Show management has just confirmed that new all-time benchmarks established at DSE 2013 last week include:
+ 4,080 qualified attendees (excluding exhibitors)—a 1.4 percent increase over 2012 (Note: Attendance increased in spite of the snowstorm that closed airports in the Midwest and Northeast);
+ Record conference attendance—a 9 percent increase over 2012;
+ Record international attendance from a total of seventy-seven countries—an increase of 11.6 percent over 2012 (representing eight more countries than a year ago);
+ Record 211 exhibitors—an increase of 22 percent over 2012; and
+ 68,895 net square feet – a 10.3 percent increase over 2012.
This year, Digital Signage Expo celebrated its tenth anniversary. Attendees, including professional end user decision-makers from key industry categories such as retail, restaurant, healthcare, education, hospitality and transportation, as well as other key stakeholders, including advertising executives, brand marketers and systems integrators, travel from all fifty states and from nearly eight countries to DSE each year to see the amazing advances in technology, software, content that are exhibited on the show floor.
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 wonderful energy and generated very positive comments from the majority of exhibitors.
“Exhibitor satisfaction was so high that we are pleased to report that the show floor is close to 80 percent sold out for 2014.”
Digital Signage Expo® 2014, co-located with the Digital Content Show, is scheduled for February 11-13, 2014, with access to the Exhibit Hall February 12 & 13 at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas.
