Press Release: Xplor International to Co-locate with ISA International Sign Expo® 2019
Two Organizations Expand Their Event Relationship
ALEXANDRIA, VA – November 29, 2018 – ISA International Sign Expo® 2019 and XPLOR19 will co-locate in Las Vegas, bringing together the sign, graphics and visual communications industry with the worldwide electronic document systems industry. This marks the first time in 12 years that Xplor has been on the West Coast.
ISA and Xplor International have partnered for the past few years in educational sessions to help their members see where the two industries intersect. But 2019 will mark the first time that the two have co-located their complete events.
Both will be held in April at Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. ISA Sign Expo® will be April 24-26, with a pre-conference day on April 23. XPLOR19 will occur April 23-25.
“We have been excited to work with Xplor these last few years, and look forward to deepening our relationship in 2019,” said Lori Anderson, ISA president and CEO. “It is clear that there is overlap from both an attendee and exhibitor standpoint, so the co-location makes it easier and more beneficial for all. More importantly, though, this provides an opportunity for each of our respective attendees to explore where synergies exist.”
ISA International Sign Expo® typically features more than 600 exhibitors and 20,000 attendees representing the breadth of the sign, graphics and visual communications industry. Xplor’s conference and vendor forum brings together end users, analysts, consultants and industry experts who share the best practices and trends in customer communications and digital documents. XPLOR19’s unique single-ballroom configuration is designed to maximize exposure to conference attendees and drive booth traffic. The vendor forum is limited to 40 exhibitors.
“The overall excitement about this event has been overwhelming,” said Skip Henk, Xplor International’s president and CEO. “There is a lot of technology and information at the ISA Sign Expo® that will be of interest to our members and vice versa. Bringing XPLOR19 and ISA International Sign Expo® 2019 to one location will increase the likelihood that sign companies, printers, in-plant executives and end users will need to leave the office only once to attend a show that has it all.”
