The Exhibitor list for the German Digital Signage Expo event to be held in Essen 6th, 7th and 8th May 2008 is up on their web site – www.digitalsignageexpo.eu
Scala are the single most recognisable Digital Signage vendor in attendance (we also see our Dutch friends at Disignage with a small booth) but this show to all intents and purposes is mainly a kiosk event.
The organisers are charging for a 3 day Digital Signage workshop that runs alongside the event – UK PDS 199 / €299 excluding taxes!
The workshop is set to reveal yet another “comprehensive global survey on digital signage” – this time by GIM (and POPAI). Other speakers include Scala, BASF, Steven Platt, Nanonation and Gesturetek. We did also notice that on day one of the workshop Cisco will be presenting a “Case Study: Norsk Tipping’s Numbers Come Up” which we think could be interesting.
The organisers stress that last year (it was purely a Kiosk show in 2007) the majority of their visitors were from overseas (i.e. not from Germany).
