Winners And High Commendations From Last Night’s Global Digital Signage Awards

January 30, 2024 by Dave Haynes

The winners and companies with entries that ALMOST won – getting High Commendations instead – were announced last night for the global Digital Signage Awards, at a dinner in Barcelona that directly followed the Sixteen:Nine digital signage mixer.

The categories were reinvented and rewritten for this edition of the awards to boost their relevance and also find a way for projects that don’t have high profiles or big budgets to also get recognized and celebrated.

So while the list below includes some very big and expensive projects at airports, more modest work, as well as technical efforts, are also celebrated.

The room was packed and the drinks were flowing. Alan Dedicoat, the UK announcer best known for being the voice of the national lottery and a couple of ballroom dancing shows on TV, was back as host and once again very cheeky and befuddled by all the technology talk.

A very good sign that this played out as hoped is that top marks went to a little company in Tuscany, Italy – for a truly omnichannel project that incorporated digital signage screens, interactive displays and mobile to help promote businesses, services and events in the municipality of Castagneto Carducci.

The magenta bow-tied crew was very happy.

This was my call as head judge, as opposed to an entry. Florian and his business partner Stefan Schieker have been everywhere in the last couple of years – events around the globe, special reports, consulting, speeches and the content they produce for their German language news site.

Well deserved. A good man. Wish I had his energy level.

Outstanding Company

Big congratulations to all the winners and nominees, and hat tip to companies who make the effort to enter awards.
