InfoComm Prepares for Digital Signage Boom

  • InfoComm, which opens in Anaheim June 15 (show floor opens June 19) is gearing up for what will surely be a surge of interest in the commercial AV community for all things digital signage. The AV integrator attendees of InfoComm know technology–especially the hardware side of the equation. But there's still plenty of upside to the digital signage business for AV integrators and design consultants. They are still learning the nuances of marketing to a new base of digital signage customers and still learning about the content side of the digital signage equation. And there will be end-users on hand at InfoComm as well.
  • InfoComm’s Digital Signage Pavilion will provide end-users and integrators of digital signage technology in the retail, corporate, hospitality and institutional markets an opportunity to see top companies presenting the latest in this rapidly expanding field. Exhibitors include Electrograph, Covid, Grass Valley, Lighthouse, Scala and VBrick. Gold Sponsors of the Digital Signage Pavilion at InfoComm are Peerless, Sony, and Stampede, and many more. Media Sponsor is rAVe. Supporting organization is POPAI.
