Visitor research has resulted in a number of changes for Sign & Digital UK when it returns to the Birmingham NEC in April next year, including broadening its appeal to include textile print.

There will be a number of new features added as well as a theme that has been “tailored to meet the changing needs of its visitor profile”, all of which will be announced in detail soon.

Rudi Blackett, event director for Sign & Digital UK, said: “We are delighted to announce our 2018 visitors will benefit from a wider range of learning and networking opportunities than ever before, with new practical demo areas and interactive visitor features.

“In addition to focusing on our core sign, print and finishing, and display markets, we will also be broadening the appeal of the show further with an emphasis on the design and creative, textile print, event build and interior décor markets. We will be introducing a programme of engaging show content to highlight the business opportunities in these growing market sectors.”

The show will take place on 24-26 April 2018, and is free to attend.
