Exploring with the Experts
The D=SIGN conference on June 7-8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center will explore the solutions, innovations, and big ideas around digital signage. Key sessions include:
Joe Hasenzahl from Samsung will present the D=SIGN session “How to Maximize Mobile in the Digital Signage Ecosystem.” He’ll address how digital signage pursuits have been challenged by the mere fact a mobile device technically puts a "screen" in everyone's hands. His session will explore how mobile can smartly interplay with the digital signage ecosystem.
The session “Pivoting Your Digital Signage from a Pandemic Response to a Customer Experience” will feature Misty Chalk from BrightSign, Kiersten Gibson from Reach Media Network, Michelle Montazeri from Legrand AV, Chris Martel from TSItouch, and Grif Palmer from INFiLED. The group will discuss how to repurpose pandemic tools like occupancy sensors that gatekeep traffic to ones that might perform different functions like sales associate alerts.
In the session “Demystifying New LED Products: How to Future-Proof Your AV Design Project,” Larry Zoll from The LED Studio will explore the narrow pitch nuances of LED and provide a guide for comparison and help integrators and end-users assess different brands against their unique solution requirements.
Taking place on Mon., June 6, is the full-day workshop “Digital Signage Certified Expert (DSCE),” which provides a fundamental understanding of the digital signage industry, will be led by Alan Brawn, CTS, and Jonathan Brawn, CTS, of Brawn Consulting. This workshop takes a business-oriented approach that allows attendees to master the formulas for successfully planning a digital signage network, including design, hardware and software selection, deployment, content creation, and ROI/ROO for digital signage rollouts.
Alan Brawn and Jonathan Brawn will also lead the full-day workshop “Sales’ New Role and the Importance of ‘You’” on Tues., June 7. They’ll address how pro AV providers sell is different today than ever before. The goal of this seminar is to bring the sales profession on par with the level of what we sell by showing best practices and new techniques that have most recently come into prominence. Today the technologies we sell are different but so are the relationships with customers. The focus is no longer about a product but rather solving problems and creating an AV experience that adds value beyond the products sold.
Florian Rothberg of Invidis Consulting will host a Digital Signage Lunch and Learn on Wed., June 8, when he’ll present trends from the Invidis North America Digital Signage Yearbook.
