Digital Signage & Marquees

“Let people know. Share your event.”

Palmer Events Center’s digital signage is built upon the Four Winds Interactive system. Screens can display content as a group or be configured to run content independently. The screens do not have audio capabilities.

Our exterior marquees are in 2 locations around the Palmer Events Center. These locations only display the same content. All marquee signs are energy-efficient LED panels.
