So what new can we expect in 2022? Here is a list of a few things we could think of:
- More justice for QR Codes

With digital signage displaying the QR codes instead of hard prints, things can be made productive for your staff. The best part is there are many signage softwares where you need not have a new QR code every time. Simply make the updates to the menu or the product catalog and publish it.

It could be anything, a contingency template for each of the situations that come to mind can be prepared and security can be ensured.
- Social Media Feed Walls
Well, this is definitely going to be a trend. Social media connects with the audience any given day. That said, there could come a time this year when politicians could use huge displays to display their social media feeds so as to connect more with the audience or local businesses could grab more footfalls by displaying their offerings on social media outside their stores.
The possibilities are many here and one can go to be creative on connecting with their masses through their social media walls.

- Corporate Communication be it internal or external
Mostly, mails are a very important mode of communication in the corporate world. But as organizations grow bigger, digital communication is very important to keep the culture of the place upbeat.
Be it welcoming a new employee, congratulating one on their promotion, event announcements, new HR policies, updates on Employee Benefit Programs or displaying new certifications and achievements of the company – a single digital signage or more in case of big office space, can be easily used for both internal and external communication.
- Roadside Help Guides
Many cities that have a lot of tourists flocking to it every year can go on to have signage or kiosks placed at a specific distance to showcase roads, nearby places, restaurants, hotels, emergency numbers or city guide.
The city governments could start by placing them first at the place of visits that have the most number of tourists and once they are received well by the visitors, more can be placed as needed.
- Compounded growth on interactive signage and displays
Retail stores already use TV or kiosks to display their products however in 2022, you could see more and more going for them. Reason being the contactless service which is going to a roadmap to better services in the future.
A customer on the other hand, has the freedom to choose the products according to categories on their own without much help from the staff. Any product out of the stock can be easily removed and more products or new arrivals can be added almost instantly.
If you simply look at it, there is one time cost of the hardware and then you just need to pay around 100 to 120 US Dollars yearly to have a software to manage the content either on the signage or the tablets.
- Creative displays for Art Exhibits
Art displays are all about your creation and art lovers ought to have the best experience. With digital displays, you can use both kiosks and the signage. Display the kiosks at the entrance for users to register for the upcoming exhibits.
Use the signage to create slideshows of the same art with different angles. This will help the viewers decide where to place the art in case they decide to make a purchase.
