Registration is now open for this year’s International Sign Expo, the International Sign Association’s (ISA’s) annual gathering for experts in signage, graphics, and visual communications.
Taking place in Las Vegas from April 12 to 14, at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Convention Center, the event will include a variety of new and returning features.
First, in addition to the trade show floor, there will be a New Exhibitor Pavilion, where companies can showcase their up-and-coming products and make connections with industry experts.
There will also be an opportunity for professionals to improve their industry education, in sessions powered by the Sign Research Foundation. The program offers industry-specific education courses and a Learning Zone on the trade show floor, as well as three pre-conference workshops designed to dive deeper into key areas of growth. Wrap professionals are invited to join a day-long boot camp, hosted by Avery Dennison, and Sign Builder Illustrated will be presenting a half-day conference on digital signage, focusing on planning and permitting. Additionally, a full-day Make It Happen workshop will include demonstrations, materials, and techniques designed to help businesses grow.
For those looking to show off their skills, there will be two popular experiential areas on the trade show floor: The Wrap Experience and the ISA Fabrication Experience. The former is anticipated to be much larger compared to previous years and will offer more opportunities to explore this area of the industry. Further, the ISA Fabrication Experience will honour those who craft signs in a friendly competition and learning environment.
Lastly, various networking events will return, including Women Leading the Industry; the Young Professionals Meet-Up; and ISA Install, which will connect installers with national companies who outsource work. Attendees can also buy tickets for ISA Rocks: The Industry Party, which will provide a chance to relax and network poolside at the city’s Luxor Hotel.
