DSE 2014 Awards: The Winning Apex Projects

February 15, 2014 by Dave Haynes

Earlier this week at Digital Signage Expo the Apex & Content Awards were handed out at the annual dinner. 

What’s impressive this year was the variety of entrants and winners. Whereas there have been some past winners who got awards seemingly because they were among a handful of entrants, it looks like a LOT of different companies submitted entries this year and many of them are on the fringes or totally outside the digital signage eco-system.
