Screenmedia Expo 2013 will no longer be a standalone event.
The European Sign Expo 2013, a digital out-of-home media show, has acquired Screenmedia Expo, a signage event, and will integrate at ExCeL London, June 25-27, 2013. The three-day event will be co-located with FESPA 2013. Screenmedia Expo will no longer be a standalone event at Earls Court in May 2013.
“This is a natural move for Screenmedia Expo, which puts the event at the heart of a much broader visual communications community,” says Mark Pigou, managing director at Screen Events Ltd. “The delivery of information and content, whether promotional or practical, is increasingly multi-channel, blending analogue and digital to meet the needs of content owners and engage their audiences. By showcasing digital screenmedia side by side with innovations in other areas of signage and printed graphics, both elsewhere in European Sign Expo and at FESPA, our exhibitors can bring their offerings to the attention of a more diverse and indeed global visitor audience.”
The new event for signmakers and buyers/specifiers of signage offers an environment in which to explore innovations in architectural and informational signage mediums, including channel lettering, signage systems, and illuminated displays, alongside digital out-of-home media and signage, according to the ESE.
Exhibitors include screenmedia practitioners, digital outdoor providers, interactive screenmedia providers, ATM and kiosk manufacturers, and mobile and social media providers and developers.
Access to FESPA 2013 as well as special content programs and inspirational exhibition features within FESPA are free of charge when registered for the European Sign Expo.
