Sign Africa Expo organisers Practical Publishing have launched the 2013 Sign Africa Expo and Roadshow dates.

The Sign Africa Expo is the largest Sign, Display and Digital Graphics Expo for Africa and will take place from 21-23 August 2013 at the Sandton Convention Centre. This event is an opportunity for local and international visitors to investigate the various available business ventures and gather ideas from the range of new products for the signage and display industries.

The expo is the gateway into Africa. Over 5850 visitors attended the 2012 expo, with more visitors, including those from all over the African continent and other international visitors, expected to attend in 2013. Practical Publishing will kick off its international marketing campaigns to attract overseas visitors from November this year.

Sign Africa is proudly sponsored by Avery Dennison and Roland.

The Sign Africa Roadshows give industry professionals an opportunity to see solutions in their own city. Sign Africa will aim to educate and inspire visitors on wide format printing, digital signage, display and directional signage systems, routers and engraving, laser cutting, T-shirt printing and more. Each of the RoadShows held in 2012 had a great response from visitors, with the Bloemfontein Roadshow, held for the first time in 2012, being so successful that a Roadshow will be held again in the region in 2013.
