Sign & Digital UK, the leading trade exhibition for the visual communications sector, today announced the launch of its 2018 show website, with a bold new design that reflects the innovative and creative nature of this fast-paced industry.
Industry awards can sometimes be a bit of a cynical experience. The majority of these events are run by trade press publishers looking to extract a few extra pennies from the market, with winners tending to be representative of the individual category award sponsors own customer base. From experience the majority of awards events that I have attended seemed to be nothing more than a good excuse for a pissed-up food fight and an all-round back-slapping session in the bar afterwards, and there is nothing wrong with that if this is your thing, but it’s not for me.
Roland DG has announced that Axiya Signs is the grand prize winner of its ‘Scratch & Win’ prize draw from Sign & Digital UK 2016 and has won a Roland TrueVIS VG-540 wide format printer.
This year’s Sign & Digital UK at the NEC has been hailed a success and, with almost identical attendance figures as the 2015 event, it looks as if the show has attracted interest from a broader cross section of the printing industry - and they like it enough to keep coming back. What was even more encouraging was the increased amount of business done at the show, with many of the visitors going along to either place an order on the day or have a final look-see before making a post-show purchasing decision.
