NZ Sign and Display Expo
The New Zealand Sign and Display Association has been playing a pivotal role in the sign industry within New Zealand for more than fifty years and initiatives, such as the NZ Sign & Display Expo, are just one of the many pro-active ways that the NZSDA engages and interacts with the wider sign industry within New Zealand.
It has since been labelled New Zealand’s biggest graphics, sign, display, large format print and allied industries event and was only launched 7 years ago. The first show in Auckland was an unqualified success, with all exhibition space sold out early. Almost 800 people attended the event, and exhibitors unanimously agreed that the show was well worth the time and energy input.
Therefore following on from its successful debut in Auckland, the NZSDA will hold an Expo every 2 years in Auckland. The 2016 Expo was held in Christchurch in conjunction with the annual NZSDA Conference and the NZ Sign & Display Awards, this maximised the number of attendees at all events, making them even more all successful.
And so 2018 sees the return of the NZ Sign Expo to Auckland along with our NZ Sign & Display Awards and Conference. Auckland will continue to be the home of the Expo in future years.
The NZ Sign Expo for 2018 will be held at the ASB Showgrounds over 2 days, 14th and 15th June. It will bring more value than ever before for our visitors and industry, showcasing the very best in technologies, new innovations, services and products from our leading exhibitors. We will also be offering a bit of hands-on experience with our inter-active Give it a Go workshop area, where we will highlight the many talents of a sign maker, like traditional hand lettering, pin striping and Gold Leaf to Graphic Design and Car Wrapping.
Speaker sessions are available to attend in our conference area, so if you would like to hear more about what is making our Association a better one you can read more in our Visitors Guide due to be released 1st June.
We are holding a late night Friday night at the NZ Sign Expo and to conclude the NZ Vehicle Wrap Competition will kick off at 4.30pm. It is a timed event of skill, speed and technique, so come along, view the exhibitors and see these teams work their magic and compete for the title of “NZ’s Top Wrapper”.
