SGI is one of the most anticipated events of the year in the region for exhibitors and visitors in the signage, outdoor media, screen and digital printing industries. Sign and Graphic Imaging Middle East (SGI) is an established business forum where exhibitors and visitors can interact with sign makers, print and production manufacturers, architects, media agencies, real-estate developers, brand and image consultants among others. The forum also includes seminars and workshops conducted by industry experts. 

IEC was established on 15th of April, 1994. Mr. Abdul Rahman Falaknaz, Chairman of IEC, comments,"When we started our journey 17 years ago, we had representation from few countries but today we are proud to say that over 296 exhibitors from 23 countries participated in the 2011 event and the numbers are set to increase next year. Our show has generated sales amounting to billions of dollars for exhibitors serving the digital printing, signage and outdoor advertising industries in the last decade and a half. We could achieve all this because we also had a great team to put the show together.”

Whilst celebrating the occasion with the team, Mr.Sharif Rahman, CEO of IEC commented, “It’s a special year for us and we will introduce new components which will be unveiled closer to the show. We had a strong turnout from across the globe. The quality of visitors who attended last year's SGI Middle East was the best we have ever seen and we expect the trend to continue into 2012.”
