The Sign Africa Expo was a major success, with companies making major leads and sales. With an increase in international visitors who visited the event, including attendees from Angola, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Mozambique and Nigeria.

FESPA'S managing director Neil Felton and Michael Ryan, exhibition manager from FESPA, attended the Expo. Next year, visitors can look forward to FESPA Africa, taking place from 2-4 July 2014 at the Gallagher Convention Centre.

FESPA Africa is a joint venture of FESPA and South African event organisor Practical Publishing, whose Sign Africa and Visual Communications Africa shows will now come together under the FESPA event, to cover all aspects of signage, wide format digital printing, garment decoration and screen printing.

Highlights at the Expo included:

Avery Dennison

Sign Africa Expo sponsor Avery Dennison showcased its latest films while fellow sponsor Roland exhibited its new SolJet Pro 4 XR-640, the company's largest and fastest printer/cutter, as well as the SOLJET XF-640 High-Speed Inkjet Printer.

The Roland/Avery Dennison Speed Wrap 2013 Challenge, with Alex Jay as MC, was extremely popular with visitors. Participants had to race against the clock, having only 25 minutes per vehicle door wrap. Daily prizes included: winner: R6500, second place: R3000, third place: R1500.

Graphix Supply World

Graphix Supply World launched Fujifilm’s Acuity Advance Select HS, making its first appearance in South Africa, as well as the latest technology from Mimaki and the newest inks from Bordeaux Digital Print Ink. Antalis South Africa showcased the latest solutions from Kodak, including the NexPress Gold HD ink, as well as solutions from Esko and EFI. Midcomp exhibited the newly-launched HP Latex 3000 printer.
