The Sign Show 2008 will be held during September 2-4, 2008 at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, UK and will hope to attract sign makers from across the UK to the inaugural event.
"The sign trade is probably one of the least represented industries when it comes to trade events. Over the past few years, we have seen numerous shows come and go—never quite hitting the nail on the head when it comes to getting the mix just right. Historically, companies specialising in large-format printing and digital signage have claimed the lion's share of exhibition space whereas traditional sign disciplines have little or no representation," said Event Director Ed Torniainen of Link Exhibitions.
"The Sign Show has been created following extensive research undertaken by Link Exhibitions into what the sign industry really wants and the answer seems to be loud and clear: more emphasis on the practical elements of sign making and acknowledgement of every sign-related discipline regardless of its size. The Sign Show wants to help the sign maker seek out new business opportunities and offer both visitors and exhibitors an event where networking opportunities extend past the show floor. Making use of the Ricoh Arena's multitude of assets including The Isle casino and entertainment area and the variety of conference and meeting rooms, The Sign Show 2008 will be a true celebration of our industry."
