Wrapping up New York Digital Signage Week 2017

New York Digital Signage Week 2017

When you set out to conquer a city like New York, you better have a good plan. We did. It was our most ambitious plan for New York Digital Signage Week to date; five days, three live shows, and a host of events up and down Manhattan. And it was worth it.
Live from Times Square
Our third trip bringing you digital signage from Times Square live from the Daktronics office. The view is always great, and our guests brought some great insight. It was the only time last week getting to hang out with Show+Tell’s Phil Langer but he is always so good and fun to be around. We had manufacturers, content creators, and owners of digital signage systems.
A visit to Primeview’s office
For those of you who came by our InfoComm 2016 booth in Las Vegas, you’ll remember a massive video wall behind our news desk. There was also an interactive display we were able to do our daily wrap up shows with. These were all Primeview displays. Their office is in New York, we were in New York so we figured we would stop by and see what they would show customers on a daily basis, not on a trade show floor. You can watch the interview we did with Primeview’s CEO, Chief, and others here.
NEC Showcase
NEC was doing New York in the Fall long before it coalesced around digital signage. About 24 years before. We got the chance to check out this partner showcase; a mini-trade show where NEC shows off their wares and also how they partner with other manufacturers such as Draper, Chief, and others.
AVWeek Live from the Christie Experiential Network
I love this space. It’s on 27th, right around from a great Korean restaurant. CEN (as they are known) shows off some of the best of their displays and newest technology. This year they were displaying a new interactive kiosk that allowed users to take pictures with digital stickers and text them to the customers.
In addition to Christie, we talked with Peerless-AV, content creators, and our host for the week, Adrian from the Daily DOOH.
It was five days of up and down midtown and lower Manhattan. So many friends from George Tucker of Aurora Multimedia to Chris Neto now of Barco I got to see. We are already working on next year’s event. There may even be a chance of bringing you the London version of Digital Signage Week in May. But, we’ll have to see how that plays out. Thank you so much to our underwriters for helping us bring you one of digital signage’s biggest events.
Have a great week.
