DSE Meta Post
Adrian J Cotterill, Editor-in-Chief
DSE was great but it still feels like a technology show and it needs to do much more to raise its content profile. More than anything else though the show (like so many others) needs to get potential ‘buyers’ through the door – retailers, agencies and brands first and foremost.
In previous posts, written ostensibly whilst at the show, we suggested bringing the network / media owners’ pavilions to the front of the hall and getting rid of the (isolated) content pavilion altogether and distributing it around the rest of the floor – we would go one step further and start a ‘buddy system’ with content providers and other exhibitors teaming up to share content and make all the stands look slick.
Anyway for completeness sake here is a summary of all our reporting of / from the event…

I’m not surprised that there is still such an emphasis on the hardware/software. As a content house, we are the last to be brought in and as the client stands there with their pockets turned inside out, we find ourselves giving crash courses (for cheap) on why content is so important and why you’re a knucklehead for making it an afterthought. From what I’ve read (tough times wouldn’t allow us to make the trip!) the seminars about content were on point and informative, so that’s good.
