The Sign Show

18 - 20 Sep 2018

Event Information

Event Details

Sign Show builds is aimed squarely at the UK sign-making industry, which is one of the most technically advanced manufacturing sectors in the UK, bringing together advanced lighting systems, CAD/CAM design, highly-engineered materials from plastics to extruded metals, fixtures and fittings, and a wide range of engineering skills and machinery to produce its products. The Sign Show is a celebration of this immensely varied supply chain.

While wide-format print technology and the sector that surrounds it is of course a highly important part of the sign industry today, such has been the focus on this sector at other shows around Europe, that the rest of the sign industry has remained a little in its shadow when exhibiting.

The Sign Show restores the balance by squarely focusing on the entire supply chain for sign-making businesses outside wide-format print in the UK, giving them a chance to shine without being over-shadowed by multi- national printer manufacturers.

The Sign Show 2018 will take place alongside The Print Show, a sister event dedicated to the UK print industry.
