SGI Dubai 2019 revolutionizes the African signage market
Wednesday 22. August 2018 - The African region develops at a breathtaking speed whereby signage is a major communication tool for all industries.
SGI Dubai 2019 show, the biggest and most comprehensive exhibition catering not only to the signage and textile printing markets in the region and beyond, caters very much to the African region whose visitors keep coming back year after year to Dubai to see the latest technologies.
There are several upcoming developments in terms of malls being developed in the African region necessitating the requirement for any kind of signage. In addition, old equipment is slowly and steadily being phased out to usher in new machinery and with the new technology in stride the automation process is fast catching up. This growth translates into vast opportunities for printers, raw material suppliers and print equipment suppliers.
Inkjet, laser and dot-matrix printers together form the core of major printer technologies. In the recent years the economy of Africa has witnessed a surge in investments in verticals like energy, and information and communication technology. More than 33 percent of African counties have a GDP growth rate of more than 6 percent according to the African Development Bank. This kind of growth has appealed global printer manufacturers towards Africas emerging economies.
Technological developments are expected to bring down the average cost per impression significantly and thus have been spurring demand in recent years. The printing industry is touted to consolidate its existing position as the economies of the Middle East and Africa mature to develop and sustain growth opportunities in the market.
SGI Dubai show is one of the most anticipated events of the year in the MENA region within the signage, digital signage, retail signage solutions, outdoor media, screen and digital printing industries.
Sign and Graphic Imaging Dubai 2019 (SGI Dubai) is the ideal converging point where visitors and exhibitors can reach out with architects, sign an makers, print and production manufacturers, media agencies, real-estate developers, brand and image consultants among others.
SGI Dubai 201 will take place from January 13 – 15, 2019 at the World Trade Center in Dubai (UAE).
