What tips would you give to first-time attendees at Digital Signage Expo?”
Like any convention or event, go with a plan. What are you looking for? With whom do you want to network? The free networking and awards events are perfect for the outgoing or even the timid to meet new industry users and experts. Stop in and say hi to a few folks. You could meet a CEO or even someone in your industry looking for the same thing you are! If you are a classroom-style learner, then the certificate programs are a good crash course or refresher and a great way to boost your resume. Beyond the keynotes, roundtables and seminars, make time to wander on the exhibit show floor. I like to do a wander through once to see what companies or ‘wow’ catches my eye, take notes and then circle back later to deep dive into the exhibits. If you’re inquisitive and like demos, then the exhibits can easily take your time, so plan accordingly so you don’t miss your original objective or meeting!
