The Digital Signage Federation is doing a Meet & Greet mixer in Austin, Texas on May 9th, and looking to get local and regional digital signage people showing up for good chats, a little education and possibly a Shiner Bock or two.
The event runs at the JW Marriott in downtown Austin, starting at 6.
There’s a small fee – $20 for DSF members, end-users or people attending the Geopath/OAAA conference that’s on in Austin around the same time. $40 if you have no workaround.
There will be speakers, and they look like good ones. Here’s the abstract:
