DSE® will present new educational opportunities themed “Digital Signage in a Connected World at its annual event in Las Vegas, to be held March 6-9, 2012.
Both the keynote speaker and keynote thought-leadership panelists will expand upon the “Connected World” theme with forward-looking perspectives on the industry. The theme also will play a large role in almost every one of the eight DSE 2012 seminar tracks.
“Digital signage has emerged as a distinctly new industry, but it also is part of a larger fabric of connected digital devices, including computers, smartphones and tablets – all of which provide new ways of engaging consumers through digital signage technologies,” said Richard Lebovitz, DSE educational and editorial director for Atlanta, Ga.-based Exponation LLC, which produces the annual show.
Attendees will be able to attend 32 general conference seminars targeting clearly defined audiences and hear an outstanding faculty of peer professionals and industry specialists make presentations relevant to the digital signage and digital out-of-home marketplace.

- Digital Signage Fundamentals
- Content University
- Digital Place-Based Networks
