PPDS, the exclusive global provider of Philips digital signage, interactive displays, direct view LED and professional TV products and solutions, has announced a pre-ISE online partner event on March 30, after confirming its participation at this year’s event in Barcelona (May 10-13).
Intended to support partners and customers currently unable or not comfortable in attending ISE 2022 – or for those wishing to get an early preview – the live ‘PPDS NEXT Spring 2022’ event will include relevant news and market trends across key industries, opportunities to engage with and quiz senior PPDS figures, and to receive early previews on the latest solutions and key announcements, ahead of ISE 2022. The announcement follows last week’s news that PPDS is joining strategic partner, Crestron, on its 20,000 km, European Next Road Trip.
“We understand not everyone is ready to travel, or comfortable at being in highly populated spaces such as a trade show,” said Chris Colpaert, PPDS general manager. “With that in mind, we will once again be holding our hugely popular online NEXT Spring event, ensuring all our partners, whether as an alternative or in addition to attending ISE 2022, can receive all the latest business updates – without setting foot outside of their home or office. Coupled with joining Crestron on their ‘Next Road Trip Europe’ event, we’re making PPDS more open and accessible to our customers than ever before.”
Franck Racapé, VP EMEA, added: “PPDS is now much more than simply a provider of displays and through ISE 2022 and our PPDS NEXT Spring event, we’ll be demonstrating just how far we have evolved as a business in the past 12-18 months, and the unrivalled value we offer. Whichever way you choose to interact with us, whether at ISE, online or in your hometown on the Creston Next Road Trip truck, we look forward to seeing you.”
PPDS is planning some of its most significant announcements at ISE 2022. Visitors to the newly designed and digitally immersive Philips professional displays stand (Hall 3, Q600) at the 198,500 m2 Gran Via, Fira venue will be among the first to view and experience the company’s latest portfolio of advanced hardware and software solutions, bringing next level support to dedicated markets. These include corporate, education, retail, hospitality, healthcare, broadcast, food and beverage, public venues, among others.
Home for the week for PPDS teams from around the world, key headline announcements from the company at ISE 2022 will include the unveiling of a brand-new suite of 4K UHD professional TVs, updates to its highly versatile digital signage range, a new line of direct view LED displays, and additions to its families of collaborative interactive displays.
The company will also be announcing a major new internally-developed Cloud-based open platform, bringing a wave of new display control and management opportunities, and will also announce a new value enhancing strategic partnership for a new range of advanced virus and bacteria eliminating health and hygiene solutions for safer indoor business environments.
“We’re delighted and excited to confirm PPDS will once again be showcasing Philips professional displays at ISE, joining our partners and customers at the show’s new home in Barcelona – a venue befitting for the unveiling of our latest, not-to-be missed announcements and innovations,” said Chris Colpaert. “Whatever the industry, we are sure you will find the right solution for your business on our stand at ISE.”
Franck Racapé, concluded: “We were all disappointed that last year’s ISE event was cancelled. Here at PPDS, our global team has continued to work tirelessly to ensure it has remained business as usual at all times, retaining all staff and supporting our partners at every turn and challenge. The hard work has paid off and we can’t wait to see you all again in person and to showcase just some of the things we’ve been working on in what is guaranteed to be a great show.”
