Four industry experts have kindly offered to be available to man our ‘Genius Bar’ during The DailyDOOH Investor Conference, being held Oct 23 and Oct 24 part of New York Digital Signage Week.
Between them, we hope, they cover the main aspects of our industry; the agency world (including media buying and planning), content, display technology and software.

- Philip Lenger is the President and Founder of Show+Tell, a creative technology company based in New York City specializing in large-scale dynamic environments, and out-of-home digital networks. Honored with a variety of design and electronic media awards, Show+Tell has developed digital signage content and technology solutions for world-class installations like ABC’s Times Square Studios, Victory Plaza in Dallas, Texas, M&M’s World Store in Times Square and Bloomberg Headquarters in New York. Education is a key focus for Show+Tell. In an industry that is constantly changing and evolving it is important to help clients make smart choices as they navigate the combined landscape of architecture, technology, communication, design, advertising and event production. Seasoned at developing venue-specific Content Strategies, Show+Tell works with clients to enable them to exploit the power of the still undervalued digital out-of-home space. As an experienced digital production agency, S+T is committed to delivering appropriate and effective digital content, while continuing to define new techniques and practices for creative production strategies. Deep Focus Beyond Day 1 – Show+Tell encourages a “Day 2 Strategy” approach in all of their projects. Where many will concentrate the design and development effort on simply getting the project designed, built, and working, S+T is assuring that each of those stages are infused with a requirement that the project must be as viable in the years that follow the opening day. Mr. Lenger, a pilot, self-taught computer programmer, designer, and musician, has two decades of experience in creative marketing. He founded Show+Tell in 1989 and has evolved the company’s products and services to remain at the forefront of the Digital Display Business.
