Digital signage is one of the most effective ways of reaching customers to provide information about the latest products and brands. A relatively new medium, it can be a highly effective form of advertising, and a way of transmitting messages in key locations such as airports, department stores, banks and other public venues.
Our leading panel of experts and thinkers will deliver key insights into these and other questions:
- Does digital signage become even more attractive to companies during a credit crunch era? Does it offer a maximum return on investment in terms of hitting eyeballs?
- Will we see a cutback of large scale digital signage deployments as companies look to tighten their belts in 2009?
- What role will satellite companies and satellite-based digital signage play in this new landscape in 2009?
- Will satellite companies be able to play on traditional satellite strengths such as comprehensive coverage to open up new opportunities in this area?
- What trends are emerging in digital signage to help companies get their message across?
