"China's growing domestic economy continues to create a healthy demand for sign products and services, and increasingly more sophisticated and high-quality ones," says David Tang, Managing Director of UBM Trust, and the Founder of the event "at the same time we have been seeing a trend of growing number of buyers from India, Malaysia, Russia, South Africa, Turkey, as well as from traditional export markets like USA and Europe."

The newest products and technologies of the industry will be featured, including: Falcon Self-adhesive Vinyl from Tome which is mainly used in vehicle graphics, glass wall and advertising production.
