"We are delighted to state that SGI Dubai 2014 show has grown by approximately 20 per cent this year. The industry in the Middle East is growing at a rapid pace and we have seen a lot of interest from the exhibitors from across these regions," said Abdul Rahman Falaknaz, Chairman of IEC

He said the UAE, Qatar and Saudi Arabia have created a huge demand within the sign, graphic and imaging industry with several high-end malls, new airports, industry exhibitions around the clock and launch of many other upscale clusters

"We are delighted to know that our exhibitors at the show have had a very good response from the trade visitors. This indicates that there is a huge demand within the Middle East and African markets and especially after Dubai's Expo 2020 win - the markets have become more positive. This is a great indicator of the sign of good times and also shows that the industry is growing at a faster pace as compared to previous years," Falaknaz added

"Our exhibitors have pledged to be part of next year's show which will be a much larger event than this year. We are proud to say that we are the largest show in this category across the Middle East and Africa region. Positive feedback from our exhibitors also gives a lot of confidence to create another successful show for them in 2015 at an even larger scale," he said

Hewlett Packard, AGFA, EPSON, Canon, Fujifilm, Seiko, EFI, Colourjet India, DigiMatrix, Roland, Armada Digital, Flex-Europa Middle East, Signtrade and several other global and regional brands showcased their latest products at the event. DIGIMatrix Technologies was the Gold sponsor of the event

"The SGI Dubai 2014 show surpassed last year's trade visitor numbers in the first two days of the show. The trade visitors were serious customers and had attended the show with the intention of placing large orders for the innovative products on display. We had a strong turnout from across the GCC as well as East Africa, the Sub Continent, US, Europe, Asia among other demographics," said Sharif Rahman, chief executive, IEC

Sharif also mentioned that in addition to the printing and digital signage sector, car enthusiasts in the UAE also witnessed live car wrapping demonstrations

"Car wrapping was originally designed as a medium of creating mobile advertising. The car wrapping industry has witnessed rapid growth in the UAE in recent years and this market is very much in the growth phase and has a tremendous potential. This medium definitely enables wide marketing outreach, and the effectiveness of the advertising as well as its aesthetic appeal has been the reason behind the recent surge in demand for car wraps.
