The winning project involved the design, creation and installation of a 60m high kaleidoscope.

Digital Signage Experience of the Year

  • Grand Magic Hotel

In this project, the experience begins the very moment guests pass through its dynamic revolving door, and step inside a themed lobby that envelops them in wonder. Fantastic architectural effects and illusions reveal surprises for guests to discover and provide a glimpse into the show-stopping moments to come.

One judge said, “The project represents a pinnacle of creativity and innovation in the digital signage field. The fusion of hospitality and entertainment, preserving natural light while creating a stunning multimedia experience, and encouraging social interaction sets it apart.”
