DSE Announces New Abilities to Connect Attendees


Questex’s Digital Signage Experience (DSE), the preeminent event for the digital signage industry, today announces plans to further develop its community-driven focus by adding new networking areas and matchmaking capabilities to connect thousands of attendees by industry vertical.

DSE will create new networking lounges on the show floor designated for vertical market meetups in retail, DOOH, pro AV, and hospitality. These lounges will establish centralized locations for like-minded professionals to start and join important conversations.

Along with the networking lounges, connections will be further fostered via leading matchmaking technology with AI-powered meeting recommendations in the official show mobile app. The matchmaking feature analyzes attendees’ profiles, interests, and preferences, allowing for targeted recommendations and suggested connections based on shared interests and objectives. In addition, intuitive chat functionality and meeting scheduling tools simplify the process of connecting and arranging meetings, maximizing the potential for meaningful interactions.

“In recent years, there has been a notable shift towards events that prioritize a strong sense of togetherness, collaboration, and active participation,” says Marian Sandberg, vice president and market leader for DSE and LDI at Questex. “At DSE, we place a heavy emphasis on fostering connections, nurturing relationships, and creating an inclusive environment and interconnected ecosystem for all participants. The focus is on creating a shared experience where attendees feel a sense of belonging and engagement. This show is all about community and reconnecting annually with your community.”

DSE previously shared the plans that the trade show and conference will co-locate with Live Design International (LDI), the preeminent event for the live events production industry, extending its reach to 14,000-plus attendees.

Additional highlights of both events include:
