Digital Signage Expo (DSE), one of the world’s largest international trade shows and educational conferences dedicated to digital displays, interactive technology and digital communications networks, announced its 2017 event broke previous records in attendance and exhibit space.

The conference and trade show, which ran March 28-31, set a new record with more than 4,900 attendees, including fewer than 1,000 international visitors from 62 countries. Nearly 2,100 of those attendees were end users, DSE’s primary target audience, setting another all-time high.
The exhibit hall also reached a new high-water mark with 86,090 net square feet. Of the 255 exhibitors, 74 were exhibiting for the first time.
End user attendees represented more larger and well-known companies, including: Amazon.com, Anheuser-Busch, Capital One, Chevron, Facebook, Honda, JPMorganChase, Kimberly Clark, McDonald’s, Nike, Porsche, Quick Trip, Syracuse University, The Walt Disney Company and The U.S. Air Force Academy.
“The big takeaway from DSE 2017 was that attendees were highly qualified, engaged and active on the show floor on both days,” said Andrea Varrone, show director of DSE. “We worked extremely hard to bring notable brands to the show floor by increasing our promotion investments and social media outreach. Those investments paid off for our exhibitors, big-time.”
“DSE is the greatest toy store for the Digital Signage industry, said Adam Feldman, executive director, AV systems and digital media distribution technology for MGM Resorts International. “It is the perfect place to see the latest trends in software and hardware to meet face to face with industry leaders in this space to further enhance our knowledge. For new comers to Digital Signage it’s that one stop shop to get all the information you will need to help build a foundation for a successful Digital Signage implementation.”
