DSS Europe 2018 Set and Registration Opens

At this year’s Digital Signage Summit Europe, more than 40 experts will explore the most compelling business strategies in the international Digital Signage and Digital out of Home industry.

DSS Europe focuses on a conference theme of ‘Digital Storytelling – Changing the Narrative with Digital Signage.’ The two-day event will explore how digital storytelling and digital touchpoints are adding value through improving customer engagement and bridging the online and offline worlds.

DSS Europe takes place on 4-5 July, 2018 at the Sheraton Hotel, Frankfurt Airport, Germany. This will be the first time DSS Europe will be staged in a city other than in its long-term Munich base. The event is a joint venture between Integrated Systems Events, producers of the Integrated Systems Europe exhibition, and invidis consulting, a leading German digital signage consultancy.

Florian Rotberg, Managing Director, invidis consulting commented: “This year’s DSS Europe will explore how the latest digital signage technologies and business strategies are invigorating the retail sector and also how these are being absorbed by other market sectors where ‘story telling’ and clear communications are key parts of their offerings. We will have two days of panels, presentations, awards and numerous networking opportunities. DSS Europe will be the place to learn, do business and to have some fun!”

Mike Blackman, Managing Director, Integrated Systems Events commented: “Each year DSS Europe delivers exclusive thought leadership and a unique business roadmap of the digital signage market. Plus, it offers a unique showcase of the latest technologies and solutions from both established market leaders and exciting start-ups. It’s a compelling combination.”

Digital Storytelling – Changing the Narrative with Digital Signage:

Today’s consumers live in an experience-driven society. Digital pioneers like Amazon are continuously raising the bar in functionality with virtually unlimited space and product ranges, personalised services and ever faster delivery. In response, the offline world, across all platforms, is focusing on real life experiences. Digital touchpoints are an essential part of the customer journey and connect the online and offline experience.
