BROOKINGS, S.D. – Jan. 8, 2018 –Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, has been selected to design and manufacture a new LED marquee display for the Kansas City Convention Center (KCCC) in Missouri. The display was installed above the entrance of the building to welcome guests and to promote upcoming events.
