This year’s show has been a big success for us; we’ve had positive results, made sales during the show and got a lot of prospects to follow up afterwards. Sign & Digital UK is the one show that everybody attends each year to do business – it’s a buying show.

The show has been busier than we expected, and the quality of the footfall has been really good. The most important thing for us is not just the volume of leads, but the fact that people are approaching us with upcoming projects.
