Complex Made Simple

SGI Dubai 2016 is the place to be in January 2016

Sign & Graphic Imaging Dubai 2016 showcases millions worth of equipment for large format, digital signage, retail and digital printing markets

SGI Dubai 2016, the largest and oldest trade show in the MENA region and beyond once again opens its doors at the Dubai World Trade Center (WTC) in January 2016.

The 19th edition of the show, held from January 10-12, 2016, will be its biggest yet. Halls 3-8 will be bustling once again with activities. It offers abound opportunities for print service providers, printers to be and most of all print customers that can see many new and enthralling applications – to be realised at a later point in time by their trusted print service providers.

From prepress to print to finishing and beyond, the show floor will provide something for everyone. General and specialised applications for indoor and outdoor usage, for shops and retail as well as for events – all can be found under one roof at SGI Dubai 2016.

“Once again, Sign & Graphic Imaging Dubai show will be part of the Dubai shopping festival. We are proud to once again partner with this renown event that annually drives many visitors to Dubai. Our exhibitors at SGI Dubai 2016 will bring equipment worth millions of AED to the show and visitors will see the latest technologies, applications and trends in digital, large format, textile printing, as well as retail, finishing and fabricating”, explains Mr. Sharif Rahman, CEO, IEC.

Digital textile printing will be one of the main attractions at the show. It enables individual personalised designs not only for fashion, but also for home and office as well as businesses. Over the course of the last year many of the leading manufacturers enlarged their portfolio thus enabling many more applications to be brought to SGI Dubai 2016.

“While being the 4th biggest textile market worldwide, the UAE as well as the whole MENA region has been slow adopting digital technologies. With newly developed equipment, faster printers enabling more accurate and variable designs, this is about to change. We expect print service providers to adopt those new technologies, expand their portfolios and thus seeing their businesses strive. The team from SGI Dubai 2016 will do its utmost to support our exhibitors in their efforts to provide for a brighter future”, says Mr. Sharif Rahman, CEO, IEC.

SGI Dubai 2016 will take place from January 10 – 12, 2016 at the World Trade Center in Dubai (UAE).
