Digital Signage Association Votes for Independence, Trade Show

  • The Digital Signage Association announced today that its advisory board unanimously approved two initiatives: The DSA will immediately be incorporated as a non-profit industry association, governed by an independent board of directors. A task force has been assigned to secure proposals from professional trade show management companies to help establish a digital signage conference and trade show under the direction of the Digital Signage Association.

Stuart Armstrong, President of DSA, noted that there was clear consensus among its members to establish a conference & trade show for the industry by the industry with proceeds substantially staying in the industry.

The group has been working on these projects for several months and expects to register the DSA as a non-profit corporation immediately. DSA is set to announce its plan by May 3 for a conference & trade show to be held in 2011.

The DSA, established in 2007, has enjoyed rapid growth. It lists over 425 members with the majority being companies who are users of digital signage technology.
