Call For Speakers: Taiwan, June 2015


The Digital Signage Multimedia Alliance in Taiwan has put out its 2015 call for speakers to its annual Digital Signage Forum in Taipei, which runs during the giant Computex tech show.

The DSMA involves nearly 200 member companies in Asia, including technology and media companies. The annual forum takes place this year on Friday June 5 at the Taipei International Convention Center.

Lead organizer John Wang of IAdea is looking for a 30-minute talk to speak about state-of-the-art digital signage applications, and an opinion on the “next big thing” in digital signage.

Interested speakers should submit a proposal to John at [email protected], He’s the Section Chair of International Affairs and Standards, DSMA.

As many as two speakers will be selected, and their coach airfare over and back covered, as well as a couple of room nights at a Taipei hotel.

Here’s the rub: proposals should be in by midnight this Friday, Mar 20. So giddy-up.

I did daveuglybabythis event last year, along with Paul Flanigan, then of the DSA. I can tell you a few things about it:

  • It is one long plane ride.
  • You get treated very well once there. We had a big pre-event dinner at Taipei 101 involving endless toasts.
  • There’s a good crowd in a proper theatre.
  • Computex is well worth a look to get your nerd on.
  • I developed some eventually business over there by doing some extra meetings.
  • Taipei is worth a tourist look, even if it never seemed to stop raining.
