Q. Can I secure different amounts of time on the digital displays from day to day?
Yes, you can secure a different package for each day to coincide with your event needs.
Q. Can the displays be integrated into my sponsorship offerings? What if I don’t charge sponsors for signage?
If you have exhibitor and/or sponsorship opportunities, we encourage you to incorporate the digital displays into those offerings. There is no revenue share to the MCCA, so the displays can be a lucrative revenue generator.

Your show content will run for a total of 30 minutes each hour, from 6:00 am-11:00 pm, on the Marquee, Video Wall, and Digital Signage Network. Your content will be shuffled into a playlist with internal MCCA content for the other 30 minutes of each hour.

Yes, you can run different playlists for each day. We can also schedule content to run on different displays.
