STIXO-Signage Supplies

Practical Publishing is gearing up for the biggest event of the year, the Sign Africa Expo, taking place from 22-24 August 2012. This expo is aimed at providing business opportunities, equipment and consumables relating to the sign, display and digital graphics industries.

Last year’s expo in Johannesburg attracted over 6 300 visitors, making it the best attended show to date. The Expo is not only dedicated to the sign maker, but at entrepreneurs interested in exploring new business opportunities.

Sign Africa Expo sponsor, Roland, will be showcasing the new VERSAART RE-640 for durable graphics printing and Sign Africa Expo sponsor Avery Dennison will display the latest films for the graphics arts industry. Graphix Supply World will showcase the revolutionary JV400-130/160SUV solvent printer and Kemtek Imaging Systems will display new Durst products which were launched at drupa in May.

Expo organisers Practical Publishing are excited to once again host this interesting and renowned expo. ‘We are looking forward to the expo and believe the expo will attract more visitors this year than the previous year. Local and international visitors from all over will descend upon the Sandton Convention Centre,’ said Charnia Yapp, Organiser of the Sign Africa  Expo.
