As an exhibitor (which Kitcast has been over the last few years), you’re getting a great crowd of like-minded individuals. As a visitor, you’re entering the exciting world of signage technology which all the major players present.
But it’s much more than a trade show, it’s a 360-degree experience with keynotes, lectures, exhibitions, installations, fun, and excellent networking. Because when you’re paying for the conference ticket you want some high-quality conversations and opportunities. With DSE you’re playing safe.
Definitely one of the top digital signage events in the world.

Why you should attend: it’s all about the AV at InfoComm. Every year the event makes headlines in the tech press with the new technologies being presented. Digital signage has a strong presence there, it’s at the core of Infocomm’s ethos.
With more than 25000 attendees yearly, a colorful educational track, an insightful keynote schedule, and participants from all the US states and the world, you’re getting a highly inspirational event. It’s perfect for catching up with AV tweeps, networking, exchanging ideas, looking for partners, seeing what’s new, and understanding novel trends.

And all of us InfoComm adherents love the fact that it’s held in sunny Orlando. You simply can’t beat the Florida cheer and you’re never far from the waters of the Gulf after a fulfilling day at the show.
Where: Las Vegas
Why you should attend: CES is a fixture in the world of technology. Here you can see a digital performance by Billy Eilish, witness the prototypes of autonomous cars, interact with robots of all shapes and sizes, find out what’s hot in the flat-screen TV scene, and visit thousands of booths by many leading tech brands.
Digital signage is a part of this spectacle of “what’s next”. While two previous conferences are mostly focused on screen technology, CES is about electronics as a whole. And it’s a very universal event, one that has a cross-industry appeal and is talked about in the mainstream press.
