Digital Signage Expo Offers Pre-Show Certification

Digital Signage Expo (DSE), Interactive Technology Expo (ITE), and Out-of-Home Network Show (OOHNS) - the digital signage, interactive and out-of-home network industry’s international conference and trade show, where digital signage and interactive technologies are exclusively showcased all in one place - will present a pre-show certification program for digital signage executives.

The one-day Digital Signage Certified Expert (DSCE) Program will be offered on Tuesday, February 24, 2009 as one of a variety of pre-conference education options. The program is being offered by Digital Signage Expo in cooperation with the Digital Signage Experts Group, a subsidiary of the Brawn Consulting Group (BCG), and will be facilitated by Alan Brawn, BCG principal and co-owner.

The Digital Signage Experts Group is dedicated to providing education and certification programs for the complex digital signage industry and the technologies driving it. The newly created Digital Signage Experts Group is an impartial and agnostic standards body offering DSCE certification to the industry as a whole. The DSEG Program is the industry-wide culmination of advice from a council of manufacturers, distributors, software providers, and content creators. There will be a technical version and a sales version of the certification.

Chris Gibbs, president and COO of ExpoNation, LLC, the producer of Digital Signage Expo said, “We are delighted to present this certification program at Digital Signage Expo ’09 because our mission is to promote the growth of the industry through education. DSE is where people come to learn what they need to know about existing and new technologies and how to move their respective organizations into the digital communications age. We respect the fact that people come to DSE to do business and cultivate the expertise they need to safeguard the investment they have or are about to make, and we work hard to offer cutting-edge programming that provides that experience.”

Digital Signage Expo, Interactive Technology Expo, and Out-of-Home Network Show will be co-located at the Las Vegas Convention Center on February 24 - 26, 2009.
