Reminder: DSF Mixer Next Wednesday In Toronto
June 17, 2013 by Dave Haynes
A reminder that this event is on next week in my general vicinity of Toronto, put on by the Digital Signage Federation board and some sponsors like NEC and Capital Networks. It is, amusingly, billed as a two-hour mixer (clearly, the DSF people haven’t tipped beers with Canadians, who will work towards closing the place). The location is the Shoeless Joe’s right across from Roy Thomson Hall, if you know Toronto at all.
My longtime industry friend Michael Tutton, who runs Ontario Lottery’s sign networks across a pile of charity casinos, is the featured speaker. He’ll talk about content testing they did using Intel’s AIM technology, but you can ask him about Toronto’s old reggae scene, which he recently did a film about.
I was Touch and Go because of my ongoing travels, and am now officially a No. I will be once again in the land of biltong, pinotage, bunny chow and armed response companies, working on the strategy and plan for what will be a very nice retail deployment when it all gets plugged in.
If you are going, bring cards. There are 51 people registered (there’s a fee), but my guess is there are as many people or more just planning to show and oblivious to the whole registration thing. I’ve talked to numerous people here and last week in Florida who said they were going.
