Atlanta – DSE, the world’s largest tradeshow for digital display, interactive technology solutions and digital out-of-home networks, is now accepting nominations for its 14th Annual APEX Awards.
Designed to recognize and honor achievement in the installation of digital displays and interactive technology and the creation of compelling viewer content, the DSE APEX Awards have honored hundreds of companies for their innovation throughout the years. As these digital signage installations and the content they display go hand-in-hand, and the lines between the two are becoming less and less distinct, the Installation and Content Awards will now be presented in a single category.
“Every year entries for the DSE APEX Awards continue to get more and more impressive as the industry continues to evolve,” Chris Brennaman, DSE’s Conference Manager, said. “We can’t wait to showcase the latest round of excellent installations and content with the DSE audience in March.”
The APEX Awards will be presented to three outstanding entries – Gold, Silver and Bronze – in a total of nine categories. Additionally, two overall winners will receive the APEX Installation of the Year and APEX Content of the Year awards. Categories include Arts, Entertainment & Recreation; Business & Government Services; Education & Healthcare; Event Venues & Hospitality; Food & Beverage; Immersive Environments; Public Spaces; Retail; and Transportation.
To qualify, nominees must have a new or current digital signage or interactive technology program installed between Nov. 1, 2015, and Oct. 31, 2016. Updated content for existing digital signage installations that began running during the same time period will also qualify. The deadline to submit entries is Nov. 4, 2016.
Additional information and entry forms are available here.
The nominating companies can be the venues themselves, the technology providers that provided the installation hardware and software, the architects and design firms who conceived the project, as well as the system integrators who did the installation. A single company is permitted to submit multiple nominations for separate projects. The cost to enter the DSE APEX Awards is $145USD per entry if submitted by midnight EDT Oct. 7, 2016. Thereafter, the cost per entry is $195USD.
The 2017 awards program will be held Wednesday March 29 from 5-7 p.m. during DSE’s free networking reception at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
