Atlanta – April 5, 2012 - Exponation, LLC, which produces Digital Signage Expo® (DSE), the world’s largest International Tradeshow and Conference dedicated exclusively to digital signage, interactive technology and digital out-of-home networks (DOOH), has just confirmed that their ninth event presented in Las Vegas last month was in fact the largest and most successful show staged to date.

Qualified attendees included end users, systems integrators, advertising and marketing professionals. End users were the largest attendee category.
The show floor offered 62,440 net square feet of exhibit space, representing a 4% increase vs. last year’s show. International attendance was 21.4% of total attendance, with professionals from 69 different countries on the show floor. Total international attendance increased 25% vs. 2011 as the international digital signage community recognized DSE as a “must see” event.
Hotel & Casino operators reported that they encountered others who were also high quality decision-makers from a broad variety of end-user business categories, a profile that has become a hallmark of this leading international event since its inception in 2004. Attendees commented:
“DSE was a great learning experience for hospitality professionals who are looking to get into or learn more about digital signage. DSE had new and cutting-edge technologies that help capture your audience. The WOW parts of the show for me were the 3D displays and life-like holograms.”
Chet Patel, Director Information Technology, Disney Swan & Dolphin Hotels
“The great thing about DSE is that the show continues to reflect the dynamic growth of our ever evolving industry.”
Randy Dearborn, Vice President, Multimedia @Guest Technology, MGM Resorts International
