Africa’s biggest signage and digital graphics expo, the Sign Africa Expo, takes place this week from 21-23 August at the Sandton Convention Centre.
Sign Africa provides an ideal platform into Africa for the sign, design, graphics and marketing arenas and offers the opportunity for local and international visitors to investigate the various available business ventures, gathering ideas from the range of new products for the signage and display industries.
The Expo is widely regarded as the print industry’s gateway into Africa. Over 5850 visitors attended the 2012 expo, with greater numbers expected to attend in 2013, including many international visitors from across the African continent and elsewhere.
Notable brands being exhibited include: Avery Dennison, Roland, Mimaki, Evonik, EFI, HP and Agfa to name a few.
Roland, in partnership with Avery Dennison and Sign Africa, will hold the extremely popular Speed Wrap Challenge where visitors flock to see contestants racing against the clock to wrap a vehicle door or an entire vehicle, in a bid to be crowned the ultimate wrap-off champion.
The Expo Conference programme will feature a diverse group of industry experts and leaders, addressing various topics related to the wide format and digital printing industries.
Visitors can also attend the new free educational T-Shirt Printing and Vinyl Application Training zones in Hall two. The zones will feature free presentations and demonstrations, where you can see all methods of T-shirt printing in action as well as getting technical step-by-step help on vinyl application. Experts in both fields will be there to educate visitors and answer their questions.
