For the second year, SEGD's Xlab conferencewill be part of New York Digital Signage Week (#NYDSW) in New York City. The week-long series of events centering around digital signage begins on October 24, and culimnates on the evening of October 28. The events promise to be engaging, with plenty of fantastic networking opportunities for those interested in implementing digital signage in their outdoor and retail projects, or increasing their involvement with the industry.
Last year, NYDSW celebrated its largest-ever number of events as well as attendance and support from three major industry associations (DPAA, DSF, OAAA), suppliers and the inclusion of SEGD's Xlab for the first time.
This year, the calendar is filled to the brim with events again (and there are more to come), so we've decided to help you out by providing a short cheat-sheet of what's happening so far. Don't forget to register for these events!
