For three days in March, 19 SouthWood team members had a wonderful bonding experience as they traveled to Orlando for the International Sign Association 2018 Expo and trade show. We returned equipped with the latest trends in channel letters, LED lighting, durable materials, ADA, efficient routers and printers, display signs, production software, paint and so much more.
The ISA International Sign Expo 2018 featured nearly 600 exhibitors, many offering new products and specials. Attendance topped 20,387—making it the largest ISA Sign Expo in Orlando and one of the largest in ISA Sign Expo history. Also, the trade show floor was the largest-ever footprint for the event at 221,000 square feet.
ISA International Sign Expo annually brings together the breadth of the sign, graphics and visual communications industry, ranging from neon and LEDs to print and soft signage. Throughout the event, attendees learned more about products, innovations and ideas to help them expand and grow their businesses. Our team has already begun to share this new knowledge and technology with our clients.
