Speakers include; Eben Upton, the founder of the Raspberry Pi foundation; Peter Cherna, Scala’s Chief Product Officer (a 30 year industry veteran); Josko Grljevic, the former Strategy & Performance Director for Barclays PLC who is now responsible at Exterion Media for delivering digital advertising to the London Underground; Rob Badenoch, TAD Associates’ Associate Principal, a world leading audiovisual, acoustics, and converged telecommunications infrastructure expert, Harrods’ Guy Cheston, probably the world’s foremost authority in retail related media sales; Google’s Mark Grady and more!

It’s a full day conference and we’ll be announcing the last few speakers soon. Tickets are already available if you know where to look.

London Digital Signage Week takes place May 8-12, 2017 and as with its counterpart in New York, the week will be of interest to anyone involved in digital signage in retail, employee communications, smart cities or digital out of home.

Thanks to Beaver Group, the week will also see a Google Masterclass on digital signage (also held earlier this year).

#LDSW will kick off on the Monday and Tuesday with Retail Digital Signage Expo, which is co-located with Retail Business Technology Expo and Retail Design Expo – both of which, have been hailed as an overwhelming success in the past few years (15,452 attendees in 2016, including over 2,100 international visitors). All of those three events take place at the Olympia Grand, London.

The DailyDOOH Media Summit will take place Tuesday May 9, 2017 in its usual place at BAFTA, Piccadilly and a Programmatic Buying and Marketplace Workshop will take place on the afternoon of Wednesday May 10, 2017 (location TBD but most likely in the same place as last year).

More events will be announced over the course of the next few months.
