Elevate Digital’s CEO, George Burciaga, Unveils New Technology
George Burciaga, CEO of Chicago-based startup, Elevate Digital is changing the way the outdoor advertising game is being played.
Elevate Digital will unveil their newest version of the interactive digital displays and connective applications this week, Feb. 26-28, at the Digital Signage Expo (DSE) in Las Vegas. The new outdoor interactive products are bigger than the previous models. The connective applications and advertisements are sleeker and updated with new features. The units will be introduced in Chicago, Miami and New York City this summer.
“Elevate Digital is doing something that hasn’t been done before by introducing technology that will inspire the consumer to connect and become part of the experience,” said Burciaga. “Our main focus is showing the world that this latest technology is going to change traditional advertising by bringing it to an age where consumer interaction is more of a necessity than ever before.”
Burciaga will speak at the 10th Annual Digital Signage Expo on Feb. 28 at 4 p.m. PST. His presentation, “Innovation and Profit Through DOOH Networks,” will address topics such as using innovative content and features to standout, increasing sales and awareness through new methods, and generating a profit utilizing a digital out-of-home display (DOOH) network.
“I’m honored to have the opportunity to speak at the expo,” said Burciaga. “We have the ability to help franchises change their business platform and we have the chance for agencies to see the value of interactive advertisement for their customers.”
Elevate Digital is also a finalist for a DSE Content Award recognizing their multi-platform content created for Groupon. The annual awards recognize originality in content applications tailored specifically for the many global DOOH audiences. Chosen by an independent panel of six industry professionals, this year’s Content Award finalists were named from a field of nearly 70 entrants representing 11 countries.
“Being a finalist proves Elevate Digital is adding a dynamic element to an industry that has been surprisingly static for the last 20 years,” said Burciaga.
Founded in March 2011, Elevate Digital is the first company to introduce connective advertising, controlled messaging, hyper local services and social media integration in a multi-sensory interactive experience. The DOOH company is currently the only one operating a network of fully interactive display units in the United States. With over 70 units installed throughout Chicago, Elevate Digital’s interactive network reaches over 100 million consumers per year.
