Digital Signage Expo (DSE) is extending its nominations deadline to allow those precluded by holiday deadlines some additional time to participate. The new extended deadline to submit entries is 12:00 p.m. PT on January 16.
The APEX Awards will be presented to three outstanding entries—Gold, Silver and Bronze—in a total of 12 categories. Additionally, one entry will win the APEX Installation of the Year, and one entry will win the APEX Content of the Year. New this year will be a third overall award, the Integrator of the Year, which will honor the company that had the most successful overall year with multiple project installations that achieved goals based on the criteria of challenge, creativity, ROI and ROO.
Categories will include Corporate Environments, DOOH Campaigns, Educational Environments, Entertainment & Recreation, Experiential Design & Planning, Healthcare Environments, Hospitality, Public Spaces, Restaurants, Bars and Foodservices, Retail Environments, Transportation and Venues.
To qualify, nominees must have a new or current digital signage or interactive technology program installed between November 1, 2017 and October 31, 2018. Updated content for existing digital signage installations that began running during the same time period will also qualify. Additional information and entry forms are available on DSE’s APEX Awards page.
The 2019 awards program will be held in the Pavilion Ballroom on March 27, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., following DSE’s networking reception at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino.
