As a leading provider of digital signage solutions in the UK, Signworld Group is excited to share the latest trends and developments in the industry. 

In this blog, we’ll explore the key themes that are shaping the future of digital signage and how businesses can leverage these trends to enhance their communication strategies.

Why Attend DSS Europe?

DSS Europe is more than just a conference; it’s an immersive experience that offers unparalleled opportunities for learning, networking, and discovery. Here are just a few of the reasons why attending DSS Europe is a must for anyone in the digital signage industry:

  1. In-Person Networking: One of the most valuable aspects of DSS Europe is the opportunity to connect with industry leaders and peers from around the world. The conference’s Show App features powerful networking tools that make it easy to schedule meetings, exchange ideas, and build relationships that can lead to new business opportunities.
  2. Latest Trends: DSS Europe is the place to be for anyone who wants to stay up-to-date on the latest business and technology trends in the digital signage industry. The conference features a wide range of sessions and workshops led by international experts who share their insights and experiences on topics ranging from content creation and management to hardware and software solutions.
  3. High-Level Experts: DSS Europe attracts some of the most influential and innovative minds in the digital signage industry. Attendees have the opportunity to hear from C-Suite speakers and disruptive movers & shakers who are shaping the future of the industry. These thought leaders share their visions for the future and provide valuable insights into the challenges and opportunities facing the industry.
  4. Discover Solutions: DSS Europe features an extensive exhibition area where attendees can discover the latest products and services from leading vendors and suppliers. The DooH & Retail Media Showcase highlights the most innovative solutions for digital out-of-home advertising and retail media, while the Green Signage Hall of Fame showcases the most sustainable and environmentally friendly signage solutions. The Software Showcase features the latest software platforms and tools for content creation, management, and distribution.

Market Trends and Insights

One of the most anticipated sessions at DSS Europe is the Invidis market keynote, which provides exclusive quantitative analyses of markets and trends in the digital signage industry. This year, the keynote will feature a special focus on the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and Asia-Pacific (APAC) regions, which are experiencing rapid growth and presenting new opportunities for the industry.

The MENA market, led by countries such as Saudi Arabia and Egypt, is undergoing a transformation as many western concepts such as cinemas expand rapidly. This presents significant opportunities for digital signage providers to enter new markets and provide innovative solutions for entertainment and retail environments.

Meanwhile, the APAC region is an untapped market that is keen on integrating Europe’s leading software platforms while adapting customer journeys to young, mobile-first consumers. This presents unique challenges and opportunities for digital signage providers to develop solutions that are tailored to the needs and preferences of these consumers.

IT Security: Protecting Your Digital Signage Network

As digital signage networks become increasingly connected and data-driven, they are becoming more vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Modern DS systems are often integrated with backend systems and represent a tempting target for hackers looking to steal sensitive data or disrupt operations.

Last year, several high-profile digital signage providers fell victim to ransomware attacks and had to pay six-figure sums to regain control of their networks. This highlights the importance of robust IT security measures to protect against cyber threats.

At DSS Europe, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the latest strategies and technologies for securing digital signage networks. Experts will share best practices for network design, data encryption, and access control, as well as strategies for detecting and responding to cyber-attacks.

The Future of Digital Signage Software

Digital signage software is undergoing a major transformation, with all major display manufacturers now offering agnostic software platforms that are designed to work with a wide range of hardware and content management systems.

One of the most exciting developments in this area is Samsung’s recently launched VXT platform, which has the potential to be a game-changer for the industry. VXT provides a complete ecosystem for digital signage, including an app store that allows users to easily upgrade, update, and enrich their solutions throughout their lifecycle.

By breaking out of the traditional silo approach to digital signage, VXT and other agnostic platforms are opening up new opportunities for integration with other areas of AV, such as video conferencing and room booking systems. This is helping to make digital signage a B2B mass market, with solutions that are more flexible, scalable, and user-friendly than ever before.

Green Signage: Sustainability is No Longer Optional

Sustainability has become a top priority for businesses and consumers alike, and the digital signage industry is no exception. With energy costs rising and carbon credits becoming increasingly expensive, there is a growing demand for more sustainable and environmentally friendly signage solutions.

A new generation of consumers expects technical performance to be combined with tangible environmental responsibility, and soon, Green Signage will not be an option but a necessity for vendors, integrators, and end customers.

In Europe, Net Zero and sustainability have become top priorities, with regulators putting sustainability directives into place and increasing CSRD reporting demands. Other regions, such as North America and APAC, are also beginning to follow suit.

At DSS Europe 2024, attendees will have the opportunity to discover best practices, the latest technological developments, and realistic scenarios for transitioning to more sustainable signage solutions. Experts will share insights on topics such as energy-efficient displays, sustainable materials, and circular economy principles for digital signage.
