International Sign Association (ISA) International Sign Expo 2020 and Impressions Expo (formerly known as the Imprinted Sportswear Show [ISS]) announced today that they be co-locating next spring.
The combined tradeshow space next year will be more than 32,516 m2 (350,000 sf).
“Bringing these events to one location allows attendees the opportunity to explore ways to expand their businesses,” said ISA’s president and CEO Lori Anderson. “Both are thriving industries and offer creative ways to grow and serve clients, especially for printers who already have some of the necessary equipment.”
The International Sign Expo has more than 20,000 attendees every year and showcases the breadth of the sign, graphics, and visual communications industry while Impressions Expo draws a large number of print buyers. Both the events offer education through seminars and hands-on demonstrations.
“This co-location is an excellent opportunity to bring two unique but closely related communities together,” said Impressions Expo’s show director Joshua Carruth. “Not only will both attendee bases benefit from discovering and adding new, profitable services for their customers, but will also get a chance to network and learn from the other’s experiences.”
“ISA Sign Expo has long worked to provide strategic co-locations that expand the value for our attendees and exhibitors,” said ISA’s chief operating officer Brandon Hensley. “We are excited about the co-location with Impressions Expo and look forward to announcing more such plans in the months ahead.”
ISA International Sign Expo and Impressions Expo will be held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., from April 2 to 4, 2020. ISA will hold a pre-conference day on April 1. Registration for the event will open this fall at www.signexpo.org and at ImpressionsExpo.com.
