On Wednesday this week, Sanjay & Debbie visited the Retail EXPO show at Olympia in London, a chance to witness first hand the latest technology and digital signage available in the UK. The show had three distinct zone; Retail Technology, Design & Digital Signage. Principally on this visit, we were interested in Technology and Digital Signage.
Kiosk type digital signage is increasing in its popularity. It’s relatively straightforward to install, easy to manage and a range of prices for most budgets. Samsung showcased a wide range of LCD & LED products, including an interactive micro LED screen. Their micro LED video wall made an impressive entrance to their stand. High brightness screens featured, idea for shop windows where light can interfere with images.

Combine this type of technology with digital signage and you have a powerful tool that can seriously up the game of any retailer or footfall led organisation out there.

Rather than just measuring the success of a campaign through sales, companies can now track analytics and data pertaining to who and how an individual behaves and reacts to the digital signage campaign, allowing adjustments to campaigns to really hone in on success.
