​​“We are excited to open this year’s awards program to learn about all of the talented people and organizations raising the bar for digital technology installations and campaigns. And with three new categories, we are sure to see a lot of innovation,” said David Drain, Director of Event Programs for DSE.

“We look forward to celebrating the community’s accomplishments this fall at the awards ceremony.”

Questex previously shared the plans that Live Design International (LDI), the preeminent event for the live events industry, and DSE will co-locate to offer shared experiences, while maintaining separate exhibit and conference spaces.

“We welcome all of our attendees to use their badge to visit LDI, also held in West Hall alongside DSE,” added Drain. “The synergy created by the closer location of the two exhibit spaces will foster greater cross-traffic and more opportunity for networking, keynote presentations, and technology to both markets, while specific programming and events will continue to serve each show.”

  • Networking opportunities with thousands of attendees
  • Innovative matchmaking via the official show mobile apps
  • Lounges on the DSE show floor designated for vertical market meetups in retail, DOOH, pro AV, and more
