Among the more than 200 exhibitors participating in DSE 2017 are the 23 found in the Innovator Zone. A show within the show, the Innovator Zone was created in 2013 to accommodate mainly first-time exhibitors that offer unique products and services but are in many cases newcomers to the digital signage industry.

The Innovator Zone provides these exhibitors with a unique setting in which to meet DSE attendees. Conversely, attendees have the opportunity to discover not only innovative technology and applications but also unexpected solutions to some of the very problems you’re trying to solve.

In effect, it’s DSE in microcosm, with the surprising range of products you will find throughout the exhibit hall — except in a compact format. That’s why we suggest the Innovator Zone as your second stop, after the New Products Pavilion, before stepping onto the main floor. It’s like sampling the hors d’oeuvres before sitting down for the main course.

Here, in alphabetical order, is a quick rundown of the various companies you will encounter in the DSE 2017 Innovator Zone:
