DSF Europe used #ISE2018 last week as an opportunity to hold its annual members meeting. Whilst the meeting was somewhat poorly attended, senior figures from the association were in attendance as well as international representation from the Digital Signage Federation proper (remember that it was TWO years ago that, we quote “The Digital Signage Federation, the only independent not-for-profit trade organization serving the digital signage industry, announced… that it has finalized a working relationship with the organization formerly known as OVAB Europe, which becomes DSF Europe, an independent affiliate of the DSF”).
STRATACACHE Capital’s Dirk Huelsermann, who was founding president of OVAB Europe and and head of association since its founding in 2008, who has been president of DSF Europe inc that time, announced at the meeting that he would not run again for a fourth ‘term’ as President. It has been recommended that he become Chairman Emeritus.
The search is therefore on for the next President. At the meeting only two names were put forward; NEC Display Solutions’ Simon Jackson and ZetaDisplay AB’s President and CEO Leif Liljebrunn. There is also a requirement for a third boat director.
Voting on this, we understand will be carried out electronically.
The next DSF Europe board / members meeting will be held during London Digital Signage Week (which takes place April 30 – May 4, 2018).
