The Sign Association of Canada (SAC) has cancelled its 2021 expo due to fallout from COVID-19.
“Acknowledging the large financial commitment required to hold and participate in SAC’s Sign Expo Canada, combined with the current restrictions on travel, the continuing pandemic and the related economic uncertainties, the board decided to cancel the 2021 show,” the association said in an official press release. “The board has opted to focus the organization’s time and resources into providing programs and services that can help our industry respond, recover and rebuild throughout all of 2021.”
The show was to take place Sept. 9-11, at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ont.
Sign Expo Canada is the national trade show for the sign industry. The (usually) annual event showcases the latest products, services and trends from industry suppliers.
The association says it is looking forward to gathering in-person in 2022, and remains steadfast in its mission to members.
Established in 1955, SAC has promoted the welfare of the sign industry, improved the status of its members in the community and benefitted the users of signs.
