Washington, November 19, 2010 – The National Retail Federation and Digital Screenmedia Association (DSA) have announced a special pavilion for the NRF 100th Annual Convention & EXPO, January 9-12, 2011 in New York. The Digital & Outdoor Signage Pavilion, which will be featured on the EXPO floor, will showcase the latest and hottest signage capabilities – both outside of the store to get them in as well as inside the store to keep them captivated. This area of technology is moving very quickly and retailers need to see what must be integrated into their stores for both increased profit, tracking capabilities, cross selling and unique branding.

“Since digital and outdoor signage is such an essential part of the retail experience, we are thrilled to be able to bring this to our convention attendees,” said Susan Newman, Senior Vice President Conferences, NRF. “Retailers of all sizes will easily benefit from what the pavilion has to offer. We are thrilled to work with DSA as we celebrate our 100th convention anniversary.”

“Like everything else in this world, signage has gone digital. Retailers are intrigued by the power of full motion video and graphics to attract customers, as well as the ability to update messages in real time,” said David Drain, Executive Director of the DSA. “We are really pleased to be working with NRF on this initiative and I give kudos to them for continually bringing solutions to their show that make it a must-attend event.”

Alliance Further Demonstrates Commitment to Educating Buyers

LOUISVILLE, KY (October 4, 2010) - The Digital Screenmedia Association (DSA), a leading association focused on integrated digital screenmedia strategies for cross-channel solutions that address digital signage, interactive kiosks and mobile devices, has named Customer Engagement Technology World (CETW) as its official trade show of record. 

“We are extremely excited to align ourselves with and designate CETW as the official tradeshow of the Digital Screenmedia Association,” said Stuart Armstrong, President of EnQii North America and President of the DSA.  “Since we began the effort to select an official trade show at the beginning of this year, we studied the industry environment closely before naming CETW the preferred event for our association.  At every turn we found CETW’s focus aligned most closely with the goals and objectives of our association.” 

Armstrong added that the event’s 15 years of consistency in providing the highest quality educational programs for all buyers of digital screenmedia technologies, makes it a strategic launch pad for organizations looking to understand and utilize these technologies in their customer engagement programs.

With the agreement, the DSA will be actively involved in the process of developing conference programming for CETW events in San Francisco and New York in 2011.  This alliance will support the DSA charter around education, advocacy, and networking, with a portion of its members’ exhibition investments at CETW being allocated to assist the DSA in creating more global educational offerings.

“We are thrilled that the Digital Screenmedia Association has chosen Customer Engagement Technology World as their Official Trade Show.  CETW welcomes the opportunity to align itself with organizations that truly understand how digital screenmedia and customer engagement technologies converge to affect the organizations deploying them.  There is no question in our mind that DSA understands these intricacies and promotes these ideals,” said Lawrence Dvorchik, General Manager of CETW.  “We look forward to working with the DSA and welcoming their members to our events.”

“CETW possesses an incredibly passionate devotion to ensuring each event is buyer-focused and covers the entire buying ecosystem which is critical for end-users, such as venue and network owners, brands and agencies to understand,” said Armstrong.  “CETW’s focus on ROI, and the lengths they go to, to make sure the shows are filled with a genuine, pre-qualified buying audience, is astounding.  The scope of the education and expo floor covers all points of digital screenmedia applications: digital signage, kiosks, mobile marketing and social/loyalty networks.  CETW goes above and beyond what all other shows seem to do to ensure that exhibitors have opportunities to meet face-to-face with customers who not only have a need for their products, but the authority and budget to make the purchases.”

“In addition to being the official show of the DSA, this agreement allows CETW to further our mission of educating buyers of all customer engagement technologies throughout the year and around the world,” Dvorchik said.  “The DSA’s focus on education will help provide buyers with information to further their deployments, allowing them to make smarter technology purchases from CETW exhibitors and ultimately gain ROI from their customer engagement technology programs.”
