With thousands of visitors from across the signage, digital print, display, design and commercial print sectors expected to attend Sign & Digital UK on 24th – 26th April, the SDUK team has committed to increasing the feature and content areas at the 2018 show to help visitors increase their knowledge and learn new skills.
In addition to product launches and exclusive show offers, this year’s event will offer three new live interactive demonstration zones, a full programme in the new mainstage theatre of panel debates, Sign & Digital explains seminar sessions and expert speakers, as well as the return of the Signmakers' Workshop and training workshops from Adobe and Corel.
Three brand new demonstration zones have been created - Décor Live in partnership with Antalis, Vehicle Wrapping Live in partnership with Spandex and Textile Printing Live in partnership with Hybrid Services/Mimaki. In keeping with this year’s theme – Creativity Bought to Life – the main stage theatre will double-up as a TV studio, capturing content and also using the studio as a base to film the many demos, workshops and exhibition stands across the show floor.
The recently launched Sign & Digital explains initiative will be brought to life in a series of practical sessions hosted by independent industry consultant, Colin Gillman. In the ‘Surface Décor’ session on Tuesday 24 April, Colin along with invited guests will show visitors how to produce eye-catching, interior enhancing products that can transform a room, business space, or retail environment. Other sessions include ‘Promotional Printing’, ‘Digital Printing on Textiles’ ‘Vehicle Wrapping’ and ‘Getting into Wide-Format’.
Another new initiative from the show organisers is the introduction of three Industry Panel Debates to discuss current and future industry topics.
This year’s live talk schedule will be head lined by retail expert and broadcaster, Mary Portas. Speaking at 14.00 on 24th April in the main stage theatre Mary will offer advice to SME business leaders who are looking to explore ways of getting ahead of their competitors.
Rudi Blackett, Event Director of Sign & Digital UK said, “this year we are looking forward to greeting visitors from a wider spectrum of industry sectors, than ever before. We know that content is becoming increasingly important and this year we are providing visitors with even more opportunities to learn about new markets and technologies.
‘’Make sure you find time to see creativity in action and to quiz the experts in the new live demo areas, to watch the series of lively industry panel debates and sessions in the mains stage theatre, and to gain expert advice from the wide spectrum of exhibitors at this exciting annual industry showcase.”
