With economic concerns playing a greater role in how businesses large and small weigh the pros and cons associated with attending industry conferences, JD Events, the organization behind one of the the largest and most comprehensive joint kiosk and digital signage tradeshows, has announced that it will now provide qualified end users with free full conference access to its shows.

KisokCom Self Service Expo will be held at the Madalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev., May 6-7, 2009.
Taking yet another step to ensure attendees receive the most complete conference experience possible, this new incentive is just one of the features that has continued to bring positive results for the show's attendees year after year.

"Our priorities rest equally between our end-user audience and our exhibitor audience.  What we strive to do is introduce features that give all of our attendees, regardless of which end of the business they're coming from, a complete conference experience," explained Lawrence Dvorchik, general manager of the events.  "The new conference pass policy is just one of the benefits we bring to the table that helps us provide the most cost-efficient and effective tradeshow opportunity to others."

Among the additional features that set the joint KioskCom and The Digital Signage Show offering apart from other industry events is its unique ability to create opportunities that promote both internal and external business growth for attendees.

Internally, the events go beyond simply showcasing the latest technology kiosk and digital signage industries have to offer by incorporating sessions into both events that offer valuable presentations on business strategy and implementation.  These conference tools ensure that buying audiences walk out of the event with the best technology for their business needs and the knowledge and understanding they need to use that technology as effectively as possible.  Just as important, these components arm suppliers with advice and best practices critical to fostering the continued growth and development of their businesses.

The new SPEED Program, a strategic workshop addressing digital signage project planning, deployment, success and supplier capabilities, is another example of this internal development support.  Designed to help businesses plan for all phases of their customer-facing technology deployment from pre-launch strategy to budgeting and measuring ROI, the program addresses start to finish planning solutions.  Taking place on Tuesday, May 5 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m., program participants will receive complete SPEED training through a 4-hour session.  Registration is available at

Externally, the events consistently draw a mix of high-caliber buying and selling audiences, translating into lucrative sales and networking opportunities across the board.  "80 percent of attendees from last year's show told us they will be buying in 2009 from an exhibitor they met here," said Dvorchik.  "That demonstrates a clear connection between our audiences and a sense of excitement and urgency for implementation that is rare given the tough market we're facing today."

Boasting an equally impressive list of session speakers, including key figures from BMW, ConAgra, The Palms Hotel & Casino, HBO Latin America, Target, Indigo Books & Music, The Nielsen Company, The PCI Security Standards Council, Virgin Entertainment Group, Columbia Sportswear, Cabela's, Chrysalis, Continental Airlines, SoloHealth, Ricoh Americas and PQ Media, this year's shows look to be the most well-rounded and promising yet.
