Dubai, UAE; January16, 2019: According to the organisersof 'SGI Dubai 2019', Middle East's largest sign and graphic imaging show, the total resulting deals made either on the show floor or resulting from new sales leads generated during the show. On the heels of a successful show, IEC organised the dates for the 23rd edition of SGI Dubai 2020 from January 12th to 14th 2020 in Halls 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8 in Dubai World Trade Centre.

According to Sharif Rahman, CEO, International Expo-Consults, "SGI Dubai 2019 exceeded our expectations with visitors keeping the show floor busy even on the third day. This edition of SGI saw an impetus on innovative solutions in the printing and signage industry. We aim to build on the momentum of this show and take it into the next year with new categories added into the show".

GX Media, one of the exhibitors at SGI Dubai 2019 had come up with a unique solution that redefines branding and advertising in elevators. Their short-focus projection requires less distance and can project a larger video at shorter distances. The entire setup is easy to install and compared to conventional projectors that can only be installed in the middle of the elevator, they have the advantage of being compact, with less installation shadows and avoiding direct light to the eyes.

Other features include the ability to display the content on a loop, a low machine failure rate, not easy to be destroyed or tampered with; low time and cost of installing the replacement and it does not affect the clean and beautiful appearance of the elevator door. The machine starts projecting on operating the elevator. When the elevator door opens, the screen will stop, and the elevator will resume playing when the elevator door is closed. When the elevator is not used, it will automatically enter sleep mode. It took about a year of development and testing to achieve the technological breakthrough and the product boasts of 19 patented technologies.

The 2020 show which will be the 23rd edition of SGI Dubai, will be a completely different show from its predecessors. Much like the industry that it serves the show has gone through various stages of evolution. To keep up with the changing technology and the trends in the industry and to stay relevant to the various visitors that grace the show, SGI Dubai 2020 will extend into allied fields that it hadn't focused on in the past. After careful evaluation of the market scenario and listening to the exhibitors and more-importantly the visitors, SGI Dubai 2020 will include new categories such as Artificial Intelligence; Advanced Display Technologies such as outdoor 3D screens, holographic displays, bendy displays; Branding and Labelling and lastly Metal Cutting and Engraving.

According to the organisers, International Expo-Consults LLC, SGI Dubai has been the most anticipated event for the industry in the MENA region and the evolution lies in with their aim to not just be the largest show in the Middle East but one of the largest shows globally.

SGI Dubai 2020 will be held at 12, 13 and 14 January 2020 in Halls 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8 in the Dubai World Trade Centre.
