Digital Signage Expo 2013 Announces "Call for Speaker Proposals" Applications Deadline July 16, 2012

DSE is especially interested in proposals from end-users, network operators, ad agencies and brand marketers willing to share their real-world digital signage experiences

Atlanta - Digital Signage Expo (DSE), the world's largest International Tradeshow and Conference dedicated to digital signage, interactive technology and digital out-of-home networks (DOOH), has announced that it is now accepting speaker proposals for its 10th anniversary educational conference, taking place February 26-28, 2013, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

According to Richard Lebovitz, DSE Editorial Director, DSE organized 10 Educational Oversight Committees comprised of industry experts who volunteered to recommend topics, review proposals and approve presentations for each of the eight tracks and three of the pre-show events in the DSE 2013 conference. These Educational Oversight Committees will evaluate each proposal for its insight, perspective, relevance, usefulness and timeliness.Â

While topics other than those recommended will be considered, the proposal must make a clear case for its inclusion. DSE is especially interested in proposals from end-users, network operators, ad agencies and brand marketers willing to share their real-world digital signage experiences. Prior to submitting your proposal, please review each committee's topic suggestions at:

Because there will be 32 conference seminars, applicants are advised that space on the DSE 2013 conference program is limited, and DSE will be able to use only a certain number of the suggested topics and proposals.

Proposals should align with DSE 2013 Tracks, which include:

*Digital Signage Fundamentals

*Digital Out-of-Home Networks

*Ad Agencies & Brand Marketers

*Content University

*Hardware, Software & Connectivity

*Network Design, Management & Operations

*Special Interest

Proposals can also be submitted for the following DSE 2013 Pre-Show events: Digital Place-Based Advertising Summit, Digital Signage in Education, Digital Signage in Restaurants: Challenges and Solutions for Fast Casual and QSR and Digital Signage 360: A Global Perspective.

Lebovitz said, "DSE's conference education will focus exclusively on what is most relevant to attendees in 2013." He added, "Our attendees, who include 40 distinct end-user types from the U.S. and over 60 foreign countries, are primarily interested in how to successfully deploy and manage a digital signage system within their particular venue or venues. We are therefore looking for thought-provoking topics that will help our attendees achieve those goals."
