The European Sign Expo (Messe Munich, Germany, 23 – 26 May 2023) has attracted 75 exhibitors to the 2023 event, representing a 40 per cent growth compared to the European Sign Expo held in 2022.
The increase in exhibitors reflects the return of 16 companies, including BaltLED, Insta Displays, LaserTools and ORES Display, which are exhibiting for the first time since 2019. 1Vision, Elitas, NoviSign and Sign Trade are amongst the 25 suppliers exhibiting for the first time this year.
Located in Hall A2, visitors to European Sign Expo 2023 will see the latest in signage and visual communications solutions, including channel lettering, dimensional signage, digital signage, display systems, engraving and etching, illuminated displays, LED, neon, out-of-home media and sign tools.
“European Sign Expo provides an excellent platform for the signmaking and visual communications communities to explore the latest technological developments from a range of exhibitors, as well as meet and network with suppliers and industry peers,” FESPA Global Print Expo head Michael Ryan said.
“Munich is a popular location for European Sign Expo and we’re delighted to not only connect visitors with new suppliers but to also welcome back exhibitors who were unable to participate in 2021 and 2022 due to travel restrictions.”
The event will again be sponsored by textile frames and lightbox supplier, EFKA, which will highlight its extensive range of illuminated and non-illuminated frames and profiles. EFKA (located on stand A2-C70) is also launching its new 3D profile which enables users to place double-sided textile prints in L, U and O configurations making it suitable for both hanging and freestanding applications. In addition, EFKA will present its new advisory plan, a useful step-by-step guide for choosing the right textile frame.
“We are exhibiting at European Sign Expo 2023 because it provides us with the opportunity to connect with our customers, showcase our latest innovations, and stay up-to-date with trends in the industry. We believe that the New Perspectives strapline is a reflection of the changing landscape of the industry, and we are excited to be a part of it,” EFKA international sales manager Harold Klaren said.
Among returning exhibitors is Lucoled (located on stand A2-A68), an LED solutions provider, showcasing its new XR range of efficient LED chip technology which, in combination with a Helios lens, reduces energy consumption.
The XR range will be launched with three models for different size applications and will have an efficiency of up to 180 lumens per watt.
Domino Sign (located on stand A2-D86) will display its extensive range of products, including new profiles, bender resin and a new range of powerful LEDs. Ores Display (located on stand A2-D85) will be focusing on the expansion of its display solutions into in-house printing, with its new UV roll-to-roll, UV flatbed and digital direct sublimation print offering.
