ISA International Sign Expo and CPP (Collaboration in Packaging Production) Expo will co-locate in Las Vegas in 2017.

The announcement was made as ISA International Sign Expo 2016 prepared to open in Orlando, with more than 200,000 square feet and nearly 600 exhibitors on the tradeshow floor.

“The co-location between ISA and CPP is a perfect opportunity in the digital print eco-system to bridge signage and packaging all in a single event,” said Brandon Hensley, ISA’s chief operating officer. “We look forward to exploring the synergies and business expansion opportunities by learning more about these closely related industries.”

ISA International Sign Expo is the sign and graphics industry’s leading tradeshow for education, networking and seeing the latest products. CPP is targeted to package printing/converting equipment manufacturers/suppliers, converters and package printers, as well as brand managers, package designers and their agencies. It is designed to foster engagement and ensure business development on all fronts.

“We believe the collaboration between ISA and CPP will provide package printers and converters with the opportunity to discover innovative inkjet, digital and hybrid solutions and technologies they can’t find anywhere else,” said Jane McDermott, CPP’s show director. “There is no question that innovations in printing processes are fueling the growth in packaging production as it provides the versatility to use a variety of substrates while offering unparalleled customization opportunities.”

ISA International Sign Expo 2017 and CPP Expo 2017 will be held April 19-22 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Convention Center in Las Vegas. Check back here in the fall when registration for the 2017 shows will become available.
