Gail Chiasson, North American Editor

Digital Signage Expo, which offers what is believed to be the the world’s largest education program for the digital signage industry, has issued a call for speakers for the #dse2014 event to be held February 11-13, 2014, at the Sands Expo & Convention Center, Las Vegas.

The Call for Speakers is YOUR chance to share expertise with many of the more than 4,000 industry professionals who attend the show. The DSE is especially encouraging proposals from end-users, network operators, ad agency executives and brand marketers – and their technology partners – willing to share their real-world digital signage experiences.

Deadlines for speaker proposals is Aug. 9/13.

#dse2014 is the largest trade show and conference dedicated to digital signage, interactive technology and digital out-of-home networks. Its 2014 educational conference is themed, ‘Achieving ROI Success’.

Richard Lebovitz, DSE editorial and educational services director, says that DSE is now organizing Educational Oversight Committees to be comprised of industry experts who will recommend topics, review proposals and approve presentations for each of the seven tracks and four of the pre-show events in the DSE 2014 conference. These Educational Oversight Committees will evaluate each proposal for its insight, perspective, relevance, usefulness and timeliness.

While topics other than those recommended will be considered, the proposal must make a clear case for its inclusion. Prior to submitting your proposal, please review each committee’s topic suggestions found here.

Because there will be 28 conference seminars, applicants are advised that space on the DSE 2014 conference program is limited, and DSE will be able to use only a certain number of the suggested topics and proposals. Proposals should align with DSE 2014 Tracks, which include:

  • Digital Signage Fundamentals
  • Interactive Technology
  • Digital Out-of-Home Networks
  • Hardware, Software & Connectivity
  • Network Design, Management & Operations
  • Content University
  • Special Interest (The Connected Consumer: Retail, Transportation, Restaurants, Sports Venues)

Proposals can also be submitted for the following DSE 2014 Pre-Show events: DOOH Network Operators Conference; Digital Signage in Restaurants: Challenges and Solutions for Fast Casual and QSR; Mobile Technology & Its Implications for Digital Signage; and Design Directions: Dynamic Digital Environments.

Lebovitz says, “DSE’s conference education will focus exclusively on what is most relevant to attendees in 2014. Our attendees, who include 40 distinct end user types from the U.S. and over 70 foreign countries, are primarily interested in how to successfully deploy and manage a digital signage system within their particular venue or venues. We are therefore looking for thought-provoking topics that will help our attendees achieve those goals.”

    The experts at JANUS Displays have had the privilege of speaking at DSE in the past, and I would recommend it to anyone considering it. We have also made videos, available on our Website, so people who missed the show are able to still gain the digital signage knowledge provided.
