LONDON — The Screen Forum, an independent U.K. group dedicated to the ongoing development of the digital signage and DOOH industry, has announced the program agenda and speaker line up for its exclusive Digital Out-of-Home (DOOH) Investors Conference. The conference takes place on Day 2 of Screen Media Expo Europe 2009, National Hall, Olympia, London, April 7-8.
“The conference will present the ideal opportunity for the out OOH industry to network with senior figures from the investment community,” said Richard Cobbold, chairman, The Screen Forum. “With many companies in the sector still working towards their first profits, access to funding will be a major challenge into 2010.
