Sign Expo Canada set for this weekend at the International Centre

Last year’s Sign Expo Canada attracted over 3,000 visitors.

Sign Expo Canada is the Sign Association of Canada’s national tradeshow that attracts professionals from around the world to see the latest technology, products and services that the Canadian sign industry has to offer. The annual event will take place once again at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ontario. Show times are Friday, September 20 from 9:30 am to 5 pm, and Saturday, September 21 from 10 am to 4 pm. Traditionally, it’s a cost-effective way for visitors to source products, services and information about the sign industry. For exhibitors, it’s one of the best ways to get in front of potential customers, suppliers, manufacturers and other prospects in a short period of time.

Popular events include its Sign Competition, Wrap and Design Competition and several engaging social events – including a Move-in Party (Thursday, September 19 from 7 pm to 10:30 pm), the Don Morgan Memorial Golf Tournament (Thursday, September 19, from 8 am to 8 pm at the Royal Woodbine Golf Club), and a special Sign Industry Women in Leadership Event, Breaking Barriers (Friday, September 20 from 1:30 pm to 3 pm.)

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. SAC-ACE has evolved dramatically over the past few 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.
