PPDS, the AV industry’s fastest growing provider of digital signage, LED display and professional TV solutions, is excited to announce it will be hosting its second exclusive EMEA PPDS NEXT online conference event of 2021 this month, providing important business updates and new product announcements for partners and customers across EMEA.
Following the incredible success of the first NEXT event back in March – initially arranged as an alternative option to ISE 2021 in Barcelona – the NEXT Autumn Event will take place over two days – September 22-23, between 14:00-17:00 CEST. The event does not impact PPDS’ scheduled attendance at InfoComm 2021 (Oct 27-29) – details here.
With an impressive schedule, PPDS NEXT will once again be hosted by PPDS General Manager, Chris Colpaert, and PPDS Vice President EMEA, Franck Racapé, and will include a series of business updates and keynotes from industry visionaries, including Coen Olde Olthof, who will share his views on the evolution of Retail in combination with neuroscientific research from the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM).
A number of PPDS partners will also be providing important announcements and insights, including Advantech, Navori and Intel Corporation, and there will be a special appearance from Olivier Dijckmans, a primary teacher at Belgium school, Omnimundo.
New products, new opportunities
Those in attendance will also receive exclusive early access to news about several important upcoming Philips professional product and solution launches for the remainder of 2021 and into 2022, accompanied by detailed announcements from the company’s global marketing and product management teams.
Some of the key topics throughout the event will include – but are not limited to – seamless solutions for education, supporting retail and bringing customers back to the hight street, professional TVs for hospitality, LED, display management, and the next evolution in intelligent digital signage solutions.
‘Not to be missed’
Chris Colpaert commented: “We were delighted with the positive response to our first PPDS NEXT digital event and the value it provided for our partners and customers, which they were able to access from the comfort of their own homes and offices.
“While normality continues to return, and physical shows are now actively taking place in some territories, we understand not everyone wishes to travel to receive the latest news, insights and announcements to help them be the best they can be in the workplace. A key part of PPDS’ business philosophy is to always listen to our partners and customers and, for that reason, as well as to continue to put everyone’s wellbeing at the forefront, we will once again be going digital – it’s an event you won’t want to miss.”
Franck Racapé, added: “After focusing on new range introductions such as LED, P-Line and C-Line, and complete solutions around the corporate industry, during our NEXT Spring edition, PPDS highlights for this event will be around our approach to the education industry, the launch of exciting retail solutions in partnership with leading technology providers, as well as the introduction of our brand new platform for remote device management and control for audio visual environments.
“We look forward to seeing you there for the big kick-off on September 22, 14:00 CEST.”
