DisplaySearch Co-locates Commercial FPD Conference with InfoComm 2011

Building upon its worldwide display and electronic conferences, DisplaySearch announced that it has partnered with InfoComm International to co-locate its fourth annual Digital Signage Conference with InfoComm 2011 in Orlando, Fla. The annual conference, which focuses on both the digital signage business and advanced display technologies for the segment, will be held June 14 during InfoComm 2011 at the Orange County Convention Center.
The conference will bring together the world’s largest display vendors, the world’s largest IT companies, and companies already well-established in out-of-home digital signage environments. Additionally, they will be joined by new ventures that digital displays are helping to foster. Applications to be examined include: mass transit, mixed-use information, and advertising signage; electronic menu boards; higher-education installations; point-of-sale and dynamic signage for retail; corporate mass communication networks; out-of-home advertising/information/security messaging; and emerging solutions for the outdoor portion of the out-of-home market.
“With revenues for commercial large-format flatpanel displays alone forecast to reach more than $7 billion by 2016, and unit volume growing at a 24 percent CAGR, this segment is a key area of growth for the flatpanel display supply chain,” says Chris Connery, vice president of DisplaySearch. “Because digital signage remains a hot topic at InfoComm’s annual event, emphasis on this segment continues to grow. Co-locating the event will provide an opportunity for InfoComm attendees to learn more about the business side of digital signage, including market forecast and the latest trends.”
“The professional AV market continues to embrace flatpanel technologies, which have become inexorably linked to digital signage,” says Randal A. Lemke, Ph.D., executive director and CEO, InfoComm International. “We are pleased to offer a conference at InfoComm 2011 that examines the flatpanel market and other emerging displays associated with digital signage. The Digital Signage Conference is the perfect complement to the integrated technologies attendees can see on the show floor.”
