Dairy Queen’s Rider to Present “How to Create Excellent RFIs and RFPs” At Digital Signage Expo 2017
Digital Signage Expo (DSE), the world’s largest international trade show and educational conference dedicated to digital displays, interactive technology and digital communications networks, announced today that Janna Rider, Director of Digital Merchandising for Dairy Queen, will present a session at DSE 2017 entitled, “How to Create Excellent RFIs and RFPs.”
This general conference session is part the Digital Signage Fundamentals Seminar Program at DSE 2017 designed specifically for End Users, AV Professionals, Systems Integrators or anyone considering creating a digital communications network.
To be presented Thursday, March 30 at 9 a.m., this session will explore the RFI/RFP process, including steps in the process and steps that should be taken before entering into an RFP. It is important to find a vendor that fits well with company culture and not one that requires changing the company. The session will also cover the end of the RFP, company selection and contract.
DSE Advisory Board members considered ROI versus ROO and suggested:
“In the corporate world, it can be rather difficult to quantify ROI, so ROO or Return on Objective is the more important. ROO can be used at multiple levels of your digital signage strategy, from screen placement to content strategy and all the way to message strategy.” Jennifer Arani, Digital Signage Coordinator, Farmers Insurance Group
“It depends on what your objective is regarding the digital signage installation. We use our digital signage network to inform customers and guests. Additionally, we use the same signage to sell advertising and sponsorship.” Mark Geiger, Associate Director of Marketing & Business Development, Georgia World Congress
