DSE Huddling Up And Drinking That Powerful Canadian Beer June 4th in Toronto
May 26, 2014 by Dave Haynes
The Digital Signage Expo people are doing a mixer next week in Toronto, where it is finally warm, bordering on hot.
The DSE Huddle, as they have dubbed these things, is June 4th, starting at 5:30 and running for a coupla hours at the Jack Astors’ bar and Grill up above Toronto’s Yonge-Dundas Square. The area is kinda sorta the Canadian version of Times Square, with much of the area wallpapered with LED boards.
Says the DSE:
DSE’s Huddles are made up of local professionals who have a shared interest in digital signage, digital out-of-home and interactive technologies, and consist of end users, manufacturers, brand marketers, integrators, ad agencies and more! The goal of DSE Huddles is to provide a local place for networking, learning and idea sharing.

If you are coming from out of town and don’t know the area, it’s right downtown, but a few blocks up from the financial district. Canada’s busiest shopping centre is across the street.
