New research from Sage shows that business owners are investing in the future. More than half (54%) of small and medium enterprise (SME) owners in South Africa did not take a holiday last year and 70% put in more time than the standard 40 hour-week to grow their businesses. Of the respondents, 32% said that they expect to hire more than five employees in the next two years, and 10 percent said they’ll hire as many 20 employees in two years.
With this growth in mind, the 2016 Sign Africa expo's, will feature a host of solutions geared at helping visitors expand their businesses and enter into new revenue streams. Visitors can speak to industry experts about business opportunities in wide format digital printing, laminating, finishing, vinyls and substrates, point of sale displays, screen and pad printing, T-shirt printing, LED’s, banners, flags and laser engraving and cutting and more.
In addition to the expo’s being held around South Africa, visitors can also look forward to the FESPA Africa event, being held in Johannesburg from 7-9 September 2016. The FESPA Africa expo will be co-located with the Sign Africa and Africa Print Expo.
