Sign & Digital UK celebrates triumphant return to the NEC

Sign & Digital UK, which ran from March 22 to 24, against the challenges of COVID-19 cases on the rise and rocketing fuel prices, welcomed almost 4,000 visitors, in buying mode, to the NEC, Birmingham.

Many substantial deals for new equipment were made over the three-day sign making, digital printing and display solution show, with visitors having access to the industry’s leading exhibitors, networking opportunities, the SDUK explains lounge – featuring a packed programme of business advice, and the Sign Studio – where all the latest sign making techniques were on display.

Another show highlight was the HEXIS Battle Wrap contest, which saw contestants compete in heats over the three days. The high-energy skill testing contest concluded with a competitive final on the last day, with Mike Szwacki of WEP Wrap Squad winning the trophy and final prize of £2,500.

Jenny Matthew, event director for Sign & Digital UK said: “It’s been a challenging time for the entire industry, but we rode out the storm and delivered another fantastic Sign & Digital UK. I would like to say a big thank you to all the exhibitors, visitors, partners and media supporters who came to the show. To see so many deals done on the show floor was phenomenal – it’s always a pleasure to see end-users and suppliers come together to do business and seal deals.

“We’re already looking forward to hosting another great event in 2023. This year we had a team of market researchers speaking directly to visitors on the show floor, getting valuable feedback and insight into the areas our visitors are moving into and how SD UK can continue to evolve to best meet their business needs. The response to SD UK 2022 from our exhibitors has been overwhelming and is reflected by the record number who have rebooked for 2023.

“Sign & Digital UK remains an unrivalled meeting place for the signage, display and print industry, to keep up to date with what’s new, to see demos, and to do business, and 2023 is already shaping up to be a record breaking show. Watch this space for all the updates.”

SD UK returns in 2023 from March 21 to 23 in Hall 2 at the NEC.
