Here’s The Full Agenda For The D=Sign Conference At InfoComm
May 26, 2022 by Dave Haynes
The e-mail invites for booth tours, demos, on-site interviews and after-hours socializing are starting to flood in here at World HQ as we get less than two weeks out from InfoComm, the largest pro AV trade show and conference in North America.
AVIXA, the trade association behind the show (this year in Las Vegas), has made digital signage more of a major focus than perhaps ever, and part of that is hosting and co-presenting a two conference called D=Sign, done in collaboration with volunteers from the non-profit Digital Signage Federation. There are also venue tours, networking, workshops and a “market insights” lunch in which Florian Rotberg of the German consultancy Invidis will relate what’s happening at a macro level, and his co-presenter – me – will show endless photos of his six-month-old grandson.
There’s a dedicated set of pages for the D=Sign event, but to save you a little time looking for it, here’s a lean version of the agenda.
