As 2023 wraps up, we at SNA Displays wanted to pause and reflect on the previous twelve months. From the mundane to the spectacular, the unknown to the industry-recognized, there was no shortage of products to deliver, projects to manage, support to offer. It was the busiest 12 months on record for the SNA Family, a year that showed strong growth in audiovisual and digital signage circles. So, here’s to appreciating 2023 and ushering in a new year of growth and success.
Other highlights in sports include Michigan State University’s Breslin Center, Lamar University Umphrey Stadium and Montagne Center, University of Central Oklahoma Chad Richison Stadium, and Florida A&M’s Bragg Stadium and Lawson Center.

CHAPTER 2: PROJECT MANAGEMENT
CHAPTER 3: DISPLAY ASSETS & INSTALLATION
CHAPTER 4: LIVE-EVENT SUPPORT
Other wonderful projects include the Indiana Convention Center, Miracle Mile in Las Vegas, and the American Dream exterior LED mega-spectacular.
This year had a couple exciting special events and first-times. The LED mega-spectacular at TSX Broadway, equipped with a built-in stage and giant LED doors, not only hosted a live viewing of the biggest football game on the planet (you know which one), but the game-changing installation earned the reputation for being THE place to hold world-class pop-up live performances in front of the world. Here are peeks at the first couple.
SNA Displays and its partners took home two Digital Signage Experience awards at the 2023 DSE Show in Las Vegas. The vast digital display network at Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s global headquarters bested four other category finalists in Corporate Environments. In the Digital Out of Home (DOOH) category, the LED mega-spectacular at The Moxy in downtown Los Angeles was chosen as the winner over very stiff competition. Three other sites featuring technology by SNA Displays were also chosen as Digital Signage Experience award finalists.
At the 2023 Digital Signage Awards in Barcelona, The Moxy won the top prize for Digital Out-of-Home Media against six other competitors. We also won High Commendations for the Gagosian LED Cube (museums and historic sites) and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (corporate and workplace).
Looking forward to January, the Digital Signage Awards for 2024 have announced that we’re finalists for three categories. The addition of an LED spectacular this year to Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s Global HQ puts us up for an award in the Workplace category. We also have high hopes that the Okta Experience Center will win for Omni-Channel Design and Execution and that TSX Broadway will take home the prize for Immersive and Impactful Digital Out-of-Home Advertising. Fingers crossed!
EDUCATING THE INDUSTRY
This year, we expanded educational opportunities for clients, partners, and end-users in and around digital signage marketplace, including a series of co-hosted seminars in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Dallas, and Houston. The events, titled Pixels to Processing: Specifying a World-Class Display Solution, earned attendees three Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) credits. The seminars were a great opportunity to share industry knowledge, make professional connections, and have fun!
HIGHLIGHTING CONTENT CREATORS
We’re proud to support the work of talented content creators in the digital signage space. To highlight the amazing work some of these digital art studios have done (both with us and on other projects), we offer the Creator Q&A with SNA Displays series. We hope you enjoy these profile pieces as we continue to make amazing digital experiences with some incredible artists. More to come in 2024!
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
This year, Limelight: The SNA Blog continued to give us a platform to pursue and share with the world our core values: communicate, have fun, never stop learning, do what you do best, total project satisfaction, and people first. Here are a few of our favorites:
We also had the opportunity to talk tech with industry professionals and share mutual appreciation about some of our partnerships with AV integrators.
Well, that about does it for 2023. Here’s to another great year in 2024!
