Last Wednesday, the digital signage community descended on Toronto’s downtown to take place in Digital Signage Federation’s Night of Networking .
Sponsored by NEC Display Solutions  and Capital Networks  and held in partnership with CODACAN, the event featured a brief presentation from OLG’s Michael Tutton, the lead on OLG’s Digital Signage initiative featured in this study [PDF] .
The event drew a strong crowd, with a wide range of regulars from previous Toronto Digital Signage Mixers as well as a strong showing of new and international attendees.
In attendance were the usual contingent from the hardware manufacturers (TTUFF Tech , LG , NEC , HP ), software firms (Capital Networks , Four Winds Interactive , Omnivex , Rise Vision ), integrators (Gridcast , Cineplex Digital Media , SignCast Media , Clearview Digital Marketing ) distributors (Synnex , Tech Data  and Seneca Data ) and folks such as Mark Matha, Phil Cohen and Michael Arnett. A few media agencies and media properties lurked around, including Trapeze (who I’m told were behind the dazzling content in the Shaw branches ) and Rogers Broadcasting.
Many others in attendance really helped make this a well-rounded industry event.
