Yes, we held our breath in participation like the rest of the world… The business did not stop. In fact, we managed to maintain the growth, but it wasn’t the same. NoviSign is a business and like any other business that met this “Black Swan”, we had to re-invent ourselves. We managed to do it, like the rest of the industry, and many other domains, but surely, we are a people-oriented company. We like to meet, laugh, exchange ideas, preferably while holding (well, not just holding) a drink.
Israel, our home base, is almost fully open, and now other countries are recovering from the closures, limitations, restrictions, lockdowns and other curses. We do wear masks, but if you look carefully, you’ll see the smiles even behind the mask!
We already took part in the Israel retail expo – a one day event with lectures and an open floor with live demos, this July.
Last month we participated at InfoComm, Orlando, U.S.A. – a 3-day event in which we had a booth, live demo and we can proudly say it was packed with visitors! Indeed, the event was smaller than in previous years, in its size and in the number of visitors, but still, relevant professionals did join, using the opportunity to explore new technologies, new solutions and potential new offerings for their customers.
It was a real pleasure to meet again with customers (and potential ones), partners, system integrators, vendors/manufacturers and even competitors.
I personally believe that more than the show itself, the fact that the event took place, is a promising sign for the future! We needed it like a breeze of fresh air, as we have proven yet again, that people are doing business with other people. Our Digital Signage software platform is truly (I’m objective, believe me 🙂 innovative, flexible and super stable, but it becomes so much more, once you meet the unique people behind it!
After warming the engines, we are ready and excited to announce our real and physical attendance in the coming 4 expos during Q1. Come and meet us, in person! drink is on me…:
