SGI Dubai 2016, the largest and oldest trade show in the MENA region and beyond will be showcase a host of solutions for the industry at the Dubai World Trade Center (WTC).

Sign & Graphic Imaging Dubai 2016 is be the biggest event of the year to come for the African and Middle East Printing industry.

A multitude of equipment will be showcased and more than 400 exhibitors offer their solutions for all kinds of signage, digital printing and retail.

Many will present new applications and solutions for indoor and outdoor advertising, decoration as well as communication. To be able to communicate with everyone is one of the main targets of any signage. Attention is drawn to the detail, but also the message the advertisers want to transport. For this sophisticated and highly productive equipment is required. Be it the building wrap, hoarding or the signage outside and inside of malls, just to name a few.

All they have in common is that they have been produced, printed at some point, and that they convey a message. Though there are other means nowadays, printed signage still prevails and will prevail for a long time to come. Print service provicers and printers can experience new applications to convey the messages of their clients at SGI Dubai 2016.

The host of equipment to be displayed is breathtaking – from waterbased to latex printers, from UV to UV LED printers as well as prepress and finishing solutions, altogether aimed at enabling print service providers and printers as well as creatives and agencies to realize new ideas and projects.

“As part of the Dubai Shopping Festival, SGI Dubai has its place among the most busy and attractive events during this month”, said Mr. Sharif Rahman, CEO, IEC. “The equipment, worth millions of AED, enables the industry to lead in their field. Exhibitors will be showcasing their latest solutions for digital, large format, textile printing, as well as retail, finishing and fabricating. And if that is not yet enough, not at least the upcoming Expo 2020 provides for additional business for the regional industry and everyone wants to partake in this upswing,” he added.
