• Sign & Digital 2018 brings creativity to life

        • Sign & Digital UK welcomed over 5,300 visitors to its show last week as the three-day exhibition offered visitors a host of new interactive show features, as well as access to over 185 suppliers and thousands of products and brands. 

          The show took place at the NEC Birmingham from 24th to 26th April and embraced the 2018 theme ‘Creativity Brought to Life’. Highlights included keynote talks and panel debates in The Main Stage theatre. Celebrity retail expert, Mary Portas, also delivered a well-received talk with audience Q&A during the show’s opening day.

          The Main Stage theatre doubled-up as a TV studio, capturing the sessions and filming the many demos, workshops and vibrant exhibition stands across the show floor. 

          Away from The Main Stage theatre, the show floor hosted three dedicated demonstration zones - Décor Live in partnership with Antalis, Vehicle Wrapping Live in partnership with Spandex and Textile Printing Live in partnership with Hybrid Services/Mimaki. These areas showed visitors potential new revenue streams for their businesses, as well as encouraging them to have a go and benefit from one-on-one expert direction.

          Rudi Blackett, Event Director for Sign & Digital UK said, “it’s been another exciting year at Sign & Digital UK. Once again, I would like to say a big thank you to all of the exhibitors, visitors and show partners who supported the 2018 show. It is always a pleasure to see end-users and suppliers come together to do business in a creative and dynamic environment. We are also grateful to our fantastic line-up of speakers, including the inspirational Mary Portas, for delivering an engaging range of debates and keynote talks at this year’s show. The innovative new features at the show brought a huge amount of energy and enthusiasm to all three days and we are already looking forward to hosting an even better industry event in 2019.”

          The exhibition attracted a range of business visitors from across the whole of the visual communications industry. The number of visitors from the commercial print, event build, creative agency and retail sectors, saw increases, with representatives from high street names such as Debenhams, EDF Energy, Fossil UK, Harrods, H & M, Ikea UK & Ireland, JD Sports, Metro Bank, Screwfix and Superdry attending the show.

          With a move to new halls (3 & 3A) for 2019, there has been a high demand for stand space, with some big-name exhibitors committing to a larger presence following a standout 2018 show. 

          Sign & Digital UK returns to the NEC, Birmingham from 2th to 4th April 2019 and is free to attend for visitors. To enquire about exhibiting please contact the show team on 01342 332 000, email signanddigitaluk@fav-house.com or visit www.signanddigitaluk.com
