Sign & Digital 30th anniversary at the NEC

22 March 2017 Jenna Hadley

Sign & Digital UK is preparing to open its doors again this month, to celebrate 30 years as the leading national annual exhibition for the sign making, display solutions and digital printing industries at the NEC in Birmingham.

Since its inception, the show has also continued to evolve, this year returning with the new show theme Applications Ideas and Advice, and launching a new Creative Theatre catering to pre-press and graphic design. Other new show features include the Sign Trade Services Pavilion, an onsite ‘market place’ supplying all of the essential tools and equipment for the sign-maker.

Rudi Blackett, portfolio director for Sign & Digital UK said: “We are thrilled to be welcoming in our 30th anniversary year as a national exhibition and are very much looking forward to welcoming the industry to the NEC for this landmark event.

“Very few other trade shows have that line of pedigree, and it is testament to our partners, exhibitors and visitors that the show has played such as pivotal role over so many years and remains the key date in the industry calendar.

“The 30th Anniversary show is going to be a fantastic event that will not only celebrate the industry’s innovation and achievements but also really focus in on the future of this remarkable industry.”

Kathryn James, Managing Director of the NEC Group Conventions and Exhibitions, said: ”We are delighted that Sign & Digital UK will be celebrating their 30th birthday with us at the NEC and it has been pleasure to see the show’s growth over the years they have been with us. Having celebrated our 40th birthday just last year, we understand the importance of marking important occasions with our industry peers and we will look forward to helping make this year’s event a great success.”

The anniversary milestone will be celebrated with a party for exhibitors and the trade media, which will include a photo exhibition looking back at 30 years of the show.
