Interested in becoming a sponsor?

This is a highly sought-after event by national and local companies, alike and is an amazing opportunity to show attendees your support of their business success, as well as supporting the entire sign, graphics and visual communications industry.

Sponsorship Opportunities


This is THE event that connects national sign companies and local sign and install companies from across North America.

National sign companies need to support their major clients for local installation and maintenance projects which can range from channel letters to wide-format graphics to electrical installations and more - the needs vary based on client. They are looking for long-term install partners - this event gives them these partners.

Local Sign & Install Companies participate one of the two days, either Wednesday OR Thursday - you get to choose which day works best for you!

Meet with 10-13 of the industry's leading national sign companies and keep your install crews busy throughout '21  and beyond. All of your meetings are five-minute, 1-1 virtual meetings with representatives from national companies responsible for the national accounts and installtion projects. Each national sign company will recevieve the company profile you will complete during registration so these five-minute meetings are all about business.  

At only $449, it's a great investment when you consider many past particpants had contracts or proposals within days of this event and you didn't have to spend time or money travel to  each national company to make a connection - we bring them to you !
