2018 NACDA Convention: Daktronics Celebrates 50 Years in the Business

When convention attendees descend on Washington, DC, for the 2018 National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) Convention, Daktronics will be there with a new generation of narrow pixel pitch technology as well as a celebration of 50 years in business.

The company invites anyone attending the convention to visit their booth on Thursday, June 28, where a 50th anniversary celebration video will be shown. The video shares the history of the company along with some of the projects and challenges they faced along the way.

“Congratulations to all of the Daktronics team members as the company celebrates its 50th Anniversary,” says Bob Vecchione, NACDA Executive Director. “Daktronics has been a major NACDA sponsor for the past 26 years, and while they have excelled at innovation in an industry that has evolved dramatically through the years, from a technology perspective they have never wavered in their commitment to placing the customer first. All of us at NACDA look forward to the next 26 years of working together.”

Daktronics Booth #313, should be easy to find below the suspended, large D-shaped logo using LED freeform technology. The company will be showcasing their latest generation of 2.5-millimeter narrow pixel pitch product. This display will be showing the 50th anniversary celebration video as it showcases the technology.

“NACDA is a great convention where we can showcase our products, meet with customers, see friends and continue to build relationships working toward the common goal of informing and entertaining collegiate audiences,” says Kyle Adams, Daktronics regional manager. “This year, we’re excited to celebrate our 50th anniversary serving universities all over the country as your long-term video display and audio systems supplier! We’ll see you in D.C.”

Throughout the event, the company encourages attendees to share their history with Daktronics using the hashtag #Dak50 on social media.
