What tips would you give to first-time attendees at Digital Signage Expo?”
My advice to first-time attendees to DSE is to do research ahead of time and make a plan as to what their objectives are at the show. Staying focused is key as with most shows of this nature. They can be not only be intimidating but can make a person feel like a kid in a candy store. Follow your plan visiting specific vendors/booths you have researched so you can ensure getting through everything you wanted to see. As you walk the floor, make notes of things that stick out to you so you can circle back after going through your pre-determined plan. Also, try and stay efficient in your time at each booth you visit. There is a tendency in this type of environment for vendors to really want to draw you in and keep you engaged as they explain their product, especially if they see for whom you work. This is a one-stop shopping type of event that will really give you the opportunity to get eyes and hands on all of the latest digital signage gear and solutions, so enjoy it!!
