David Keene– Digital Signage Expo has just announced the topic of Shelley Palmer’s Keynote at the DSE show next month– “DOOH Disrupted: Paths to a Connected Future." Anyone who knows Shelley, knows that he does not pull punches. He gives his view of the future of media without sugar coating, or platitudes, and clichés (I learned this last spring, taping him to appear in my Keynote Roundtable for the Digital Signage 2010 virtual trade show.) He’s not one to make you feel all warm and fuzzy about the future of either tradition media, or DOOH. He is one to tell you, your carreer as a media professional could be a short one, if you don’t understand the fundamental shifts in communication going on in the market. I for one (more used to seeing him in short clips on his TV show, and on tape,) can’t wait to hear what he has to say, in depth, live and in person, to industry insiders who all think they have the solution to DOOH.
Here is the news today from DSE:
