The impressive growth in events and participation at the recent New York Digital Signage Week (NYDSW) indicates two notable trends. First, it’s a clear sign that digital signage has emerged as a maturing industry after nearly two decades of foundation building. Second, it’s clear that the place of this Olympic style event of events on our autumn calendar is permanent. Both are of course good things. Any opportunity to gather this many players with varied interests and perspectives on common challenges is a win for all participants. Whether the topic is technology, investments, M&A, content, ad selling, measurement or other pieces of our increasingly complex puzzle, conversations spark ideas and innovation.
