Westfalenhallen Dortmund has expanded its digital-signage network

Expansion to over 60 kompas players ­ digital signage and digital door signs in the congress center use of kompas and FairMate


With the installation of 21 new kompas players, the Westfalenhallen Dortmund has expanded it digital-signage network. The new displays, including six 55” screens from Samsung, were installed in both the congress center and the Mercure Hotel Dortmund Messe & Kongress. Both the congress center and the Mercure hotel are run by KHC Westfalenhallen GmbH. Beside the displays, in particular 15 smaller 15.6” screens for digital room signs were installed in the congress center. As part of the latest modernization project the first floor was equipped during the first phase of construction in 2015, and the top floor in the second phase. In the meantime a total of 62 players have been installed across the entire grounds in order to provide the visitors with information about ongoing events, news or weather.

The more than 60 digital-signage installations installed to date make it significantly easier to provide congress visitors with useful information. Here, kompas makes it possible to precisely control individual players and, for example, provide information about the entry process in the entrance hall. Above all, the door signs are ideal for congresses. They enable the signs to be adapted individually for each event.

Besides the kompas digital-signage software solution, the Westfalenhallen Dortmund also uses FairMate, the entrance management solution for trade fairs and events from dimedis.
