DSE, the world’s largest tradeshow for digital display, interactive technology solutions and digital out-of-home networks, is now accepting nominations for its 15th Annual APEX Awards.

The DSE APEX Awards, presented by the Digital Signage Federation, recognize and honor achievement in the creation and installation of compelling viewer content and interactive technology. Since its inception, the program has honored hundreds of companies for innovative projects that have met and/or exceeded project goals while providing meaningful ROI and ROO for clients, thereby advancing the digital signage industry.

“The most exciting part about DSE is seeing the advancements in Digital Signage technology,” said DSE Show Director Andrea Varrone. “The APEX Awards showcase the very best installations that continue to come to life around the globe.”

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 in 2019 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. The deadline to submit entries is December 21, 2018. Additional information and entry forms are available HERE.

The nominating companies can be the venues themselves, the technology providers that provided the installation hardware and software, the architects and design firms who conceived the project, as well as the system integrators who did the installation. A single company is permitted to submit multiple nominations for separate projects. The cost to enter the DSE APEX Awards is $145USD per entry if submitted by midnight EDT October 12, 2018. Thereafter, the cost per entry is $195USD.

The 2019 awards program will be held in the Pavilion Ballroom on Wednesday, March 27, from 5-7 p.m. following DSE’s free networking reception at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino.
