The show featured a comprehensive range of companies and products, from leading players such as Canon, Epson, Hewlett-Packard, Hybrid Services/Mimaki and Roland DG through to more specialist companies showcasing the latest available substrates, materials, inks and display solutions. The 2016 show included 52 companies who had not exhibited at Sign & Digital UK before while the remainder were companies who have exhibited previously.
Visitors came to see the latest innovations from across the sign making, display solutions and digital printing sectors, as well as to review new suppliers and get expert advice. They also took advantage of a range of free seminars and workshops. The Business Theatre featured some popular case study based sessions on “Exploring interior wall décor” and “Innovation in wayfinding and directional signage” as well as including practical talks on colour management and how to look after a wide format eco-solvent machine. Software training on the latest packages was available to visitors in the Adobe, Corel and SignLAB theatres, as well hands-on expert demonstrations in the Signmakers' Workshop.
