This year’s Digital Signage Summit Europe (DSS Europe) returns to the Hilton Munich Airport, Germany on 5-6 July 2023, and in line with the release of the invidis Yearbook 2023, will provide attendees with the opportunity to explore ‘Engaging Experiences - Concepts, Creation & Content.’

Celebrating its 50th edition, DSS Europe will present a fresh approach, with insights and direction on how businesses are turning to digital signage and DooH, to create unique and engaging communication journeys. In addition, attendees will be the first to receive a copy of the invidis Yearbook 2023, widely regarded as the go-to industry reference point for exclusive insights and market trends. The latest issue features key topics; ‘Engaging Experiences’ and ‘Green Signage’ which will be explored further during the two-day summit, sponsored by Google Chrome Enterprise.

“Digital signage and DooH have come a long way and are an integral part of today's communication concepts. While the mobile phone is the most interactive screen, used multiple times a day, large displays in public spaces are the screens which viewers remember most. Roadside DooH has evolved considerably, from a digital billboard to a digital canvas with vibrant, relevant, shareable and, at its best, even breath-taking storytelling,” comments Balthasar Mayer, editor-in-chief of invidis consulting.

DSS Europe will analyse and discuss how digital workflows are transforming the digital signage industry and how content can be delivered in a fraction of a second instead of hours, as it is today. Engaging Experiences encompass smart, innovative and effective ways to bring first- and third-party data to life, managed programmatically and delivered across multiple digital channels.
