Lots of great comments being added to Monday’s post about the business failure of Digital Signage Expo’s show management company, and what that means for the industry.
The latest one, from Jon Dodge at Freshwater in Grand Rapids, MI:
Freshwater has enjoyed sitting on the Advisory Board for the last decade. This was the one show where I knew I would be able to meet up with all of our partner companies and friends. Sad to see this organization come to an end.
There is some predictable upset about how the company handled the delays and booth deposits, and tried to pull the show off when it was pretty clear few people would turn up.
There are also many positive comments about the contribution the show had to the growth of the industry and its culture.
