DSF Presents “State of the Industry” Webcast

The Digital Signage Federation will present a Webcast entitled, “The State of the Digital Signage Industry: A Short Look Back and a Long Look Forward.” Presented by Margot Myers, director, Education & Training, and Steven K. Platt, director & research fellow at Platt Retail Institute (PRI), the Webcast will take place on Wednesday, January 18th, at 2pm EDT.

The hour-long event will not only feature PRI’s presentation of its Northern American Digital Signage Index (NADSI) for 2011 Q4, a measure of industry business and activity, but the free session will also examine key digital communications trends for 2012, how to aggregate consumer data to build a singular customer view, and the components and benefits of digital marketing systems.

“The DSF is committed to providing educational opportunities that benefit our members’ businesses, and PRI’s industry analysis and trends overview will help attendees better prepare their own business strategies for success in 2012,” said Brian Gorg, executive director of DSF.

Registration for this and all of DSF’s free Webinars is available on the DSF Web site at www.digitalsignagefederation.org. Register for the January 18th event online at https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/117479970 (opens in new tab).
