    Current exhibitor count on DSE’s site is 31, which includes DPAA, DSF, OAAA, KMA, DSLATAM, SEGD and rAVe’s Studio. No LG, Samsung, Sharp/NEC, Planar, Philips… just a gratis Sony stand in the back as the sole exhibitor amongst the big display concerns. On the CMS side, just Korbyt and Navori to choose from, not exciting. Little in the way of solutions in this evolving marketplace. The show is 60 days away, and the exhibit hall looks to be 2/3 empty. Not the best of signs. The floor plan appears to lend itself very well to social distancing, so there is that.
