Woodbridge, ON - The Sign Association of Canada (SAC-ACE) opened the doors to Consac-Imagemakers Tradeshow and Conference on Friday September 21, 2012 in Hall 5 of the International Centre in Mississauga, ON.
SAC Board President, Mr. Perry Brooks cut the ribbon at 9:30 am EST pronouncing the exhibit floor for Consac Imagemakers 2012 was officially open. Many members from SAC’s national board were also present to welcome the crowd of waiting visitors to the show. There was definitely an air of excitement on the exhibit floor as SAC welcomed exhibitors from all over the world. There were a record number of new exhibitors this year along with some remarkable feature areas including Artisan’s Lane, Sign Competition Area, and the ND Graphics Charity Auction.
Attendance figures for the two day event surpassed that of any previous year on record. In addition, there was a 10% increase in booths this year. Expanding our reach through an ever growing database and an aggressive marketing campaign was attributable to delivering the strongest audience ever.
SAC has commenced reserving booths for the 2013 show. “To grow this show we need to continue to promote at a time when marketing budgets traditionally are being set in late fall.” “If the exhibitor interest at the close of this year’s show is any indication, our industry will see yet another record breaking show in 2013!”
