The Sign Africa Regional Expos are designed to help wide format printers, sign makers, screen printers and the garment decoration industry to succeed in the industry by giving visitors access to the latest technology and advice from industry experts to help them grow their businesses. Following on a successful 2014 showing, expo organiser Practical Publishing has announced the 2015 dates for the Sign Africa Regional Expos.
The expos are also valuable for exhibitors, many of whom report a great return on investment and who see the event as an opportunity to build brand awareness in the region.
The Sign Africa expo is targeted at industry professionals and entrepreneurs interested in exploring the latest equipment, media and new business opportunities, in their own region. You'll see products and services for digital printing, banners and flags, photo books, photos on mugs, dye sublimation, screen printing, inks, paper, vinyls and substrates, display and directional signage systems, routers and engraving, laser cutting and engraving, equipment to print on T-shirts and digital signage.
In addition to the regional expo's being held around South Africa, visitors can also look forward to the FESPA Africa event, being held in Johannesburg from 22-24 July 2015. The inaugural FESPA Africa held at Gallagher Convention Centre from 2-4 July 2014, attracted 5460 visitors from Africa, with an 11% increase of attendees from outside South Africa compared to Sign Africa 2013. The expo organisers are enhancing and adding to the event offerings to ensure an even bigger 2015 event. The FESPA Africa expo will be co-located with Sign Africa and Africa Print Expo.
