Sign-makers prepare for The Sign Awards

Signmakers from across the country are on their way to Birmingham for the inaugural gala dinner for The Sign Awards.

The brand new event, taking place tonight (Wednesday 22nd March) at the iconic Town Hall building in central Birmingham, is bringing the industry together to celebrate their achievements for the first time in 4 years, and the excitement is palpable, with social media full of talk of the awards.

Chloe Stidwill, Marketing Manager at DMA Signs, said, “We are honoured to be attending The Sign Awards, having been nominated for 2 awards! We are very much looking forward to celebrating all the amazing work that our team has put in to create these nominated projects and celebrating all the other inspiring work in our industry from this year, seeing some familiar faces and meeting some new!”

Speaking about the organising team, Chloe added that “After attending last year’s very well put together UK Graphic Awards, we know this will be a night to remember!”

The teams from Beyond Signage and Off The Wall Creative, both based in Northern Ireland, are flying over for the awards, having each been shortlisted for 2 categories.

Matt Burns, Operations Manager at Beyond Signage, commented, “From humble beginnings in 2009 we now find ourselves shortlisted for two awards! Northern Ireland is an exciting place to work, live and visit, and we are very excited to showcase to the judging panel what we have to offer! The competition is fierce, and we are so proud to be shortlisted alongside some incredible sign companies. Thanks to everyone at The Sign Awards for organising what will be an amazing event. See you all soon!”

Shauna McClements from Off The Wall Creative said, “We are honoured to be nominated and look forward to meeting and celebrating with other industry professionals at the awards. Our team put our heart and soul into what we do, and for that reason, we want to celebrate as a team. So it is only right that we should bring everyone who is able to make it over for the celebrations. We are hopeful of a successful night for Off The Wall Creative, but regardless we wish all companies nominated the best of luck!”

The event is being supported by a number of big-name sponsors from across the industry, with backing from Amari Plastics Manchester, HP, ISA-UK, Metamark, SloanLED, SMITH Sign & Display, Spandex UK, Tradeprint, Vink Lighting Solutions, Zund UK and 3M.

Dean Ashworth, Sales & Marketing Director at Zund UK commented “Zund UK are delighted to be supporting such a respected awards event within an industry that has been part of our DNA for many years – the short-listed companies are all worthy winners in their own rights!”
