Sign Expo Canada set to impress once again

Last year’s Sign Expo had steady traffic and high-interest booths.

Sign Expo Canada is the Sign Association of Canada’s (SAC-ACE) national trade show that attracts professionals from all over the world to see the latest and greatest that the Canadian sign industry has to offer. The annual event also showcases its renowned Sign Association Awards, Wrap and Design Competition, along with several anticipated social events. Since 1955, the Sign Association of Canada (SAC-ACE) has successfully promoted the welfare of the sign industry, improved the status of its members in the community, and benefited the users of signs across Canada. And while traditional boundaries of the sign industry have expanded due to rapidly changing levels of technology and the evolution of the commercial marketplace, The Sign Association of Canada has recognized these trends and partnered with related industries and sectors that use, design and manufacture commercial images – all for the benefit of its members and the industry as a whole. SAC-ACE has evolved dramatically over the past 5 years by adding new value-added member service programs, developing additional accredited training courses, and taking a highly pro-active approach in dealing with governmental agencies and regulatory issues.

Special events this year include the 2018 Sign Association Awards, The Wrap Design Competition, Don Memorial Golf Tournament, Post Move-In Party, 2018 Cross Canada Road Show & Breakfast, Young Professionals Networking Reception, The Signmakers of Montreal Documentary, and more. Show dates are Friday, September 21 (9:30 am to 5 pm) and Saturday, September 22 (10 am to 4 pm) at Mississauga’s International Centre (Entrance 5) located at 6900 Airport Road in Mississauga, Ontario.
