- China's Definitive Sign Event Announces New Location, New Dates, and New Opportunities
GUANGZHOU, China, Sept. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SIGN CHINA, the most comprehensive event in the sign industry, announces its new fair dates and move from Guangzhou to Shanghai. Organized by UBM Trust, a joint venture partner of UBM Asia, the largest trade exhibition organizer in mainland China and part of UBM Plc, the show will take place from 16-19 September 2015 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC), Shanghai, China.
SIGN CHINA has been pioneering the combination of engraver, signage, lightbox, multimedia advertising machine, POP, outdoor and indoor large format printer, printer materials & components, LED displays, LED illuminants, LED lighting and other specialized sign products into a single comprehensive sourcing platform for the sign industry since 2003. In 2014, SIGN CHINA attracted 1,583 elite exhibitors and welcomed a record number of 88,502 trade visitors from 167 countries and regions.
This strategic move is testament to the SIGN CHINA's progressive planning by opening new doors and opportunities for the industry. Well known as the commercial and financial center of mainland China, Shanghai ranks twentieth in the 2014 edition of the Global Financial Centers Index published by the City of London. In addition, being the first free-trade zone in Mainland China, Shanghai is an ideal venue for international trade and business for the sign industry.
SIGN CHINA and its concurrent events, LED CHINA and LED LIGHTING CHINA, have been the driving force in their respective industries and the synergy between both the sign and LED brands and exhibitors at one venue has always been a main attraction to our visitors. "We look to expand upon the proud traditions and quality of exhibits that we are known for with this strategic move to Shanghai," said David Tang, Managing Director of UBM Trust. "We look to bring even more value to our visitors by providing more focus on a wider and bigger sign and LED industry platform."
