Daktronics were the latest industry supplier which proudly backed TheStadiumBusiness Design & Development Summit 2015, London 20-21 October.

We caught up with Daktronics after #TDS15…

Why did Daktronics sponsor TheStadiumBusiness Design & Development Summit 2015?

Daktronics have attended every Design & Development Summit since its conception and the fundamental reason is because it attracts a world-class audience that are either planning or developing a venue. It’s as simple as that.

The delegates that attend are there to to engage, discuss and learn about the latest trends and innovations and this is the perfect audience for us.

The Summit is extremely unique as it’s designed to generate two-way discussion, so it is the perfect platform for us to network with key decision makers in the industry.

We really enjoyed attending #TDS15, we don’t go anywhere else.

What projects have Daktronics been working on recently?untitled

Domestically, we’ve been upgrading the video boards at Twickenham in time for the Rugby World Cup Finals, we’ve been working on revamping the London Queen Elizabeth Park installing video displays into three of the venues: Velodrome, Tennis Centre, Hockey Centre and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park Stadium

Outside of the UK, we’ve been installing and supplying the video displays for the Baku Olympic Stadium in Azerbaijan and have installed the largest score boards in the world at the Everbank Stadium in Jacksonville, USA.

These are just a handful of projects that we have been working on, but it’s fair to say we’ve been very productive over the last few years.

Looking ahead, what will Daktronics be focusing on?

The main aim at Daktronics is to be recognised as the most innovative, robust and reliable supplier of video displays. Subsequently, our clients know they are purchasing quality which is at the forefront of the industry. We want to help brands engage with their fans through our technology and that is what we’ll be ensuring continues going forward.
