Who's going to Sign & Digital UK? Where to stay?

I'm going this year for the first time, who else is going and can you recommend accommodation? I'll be down myself so would be good to meet a few of you and put faces to the names so to speak.

Re: Who's going to Sign & Digital UK? Where to stay

We're going to be there! (Stand F30 if you'd like to say hi :D )
We always stay at the same place in town (Arcadia Apartments) so probably not the best person to offer accommodation advice.

What are you hoping to see at the show?

Re: Who's going to Sign & Digital UK? Where to stay

I will be there for the three days... looking forward to it.
I am keeping my eyes peeled for anything new really. Always think trade shows, even if you don't buy something can inspire you in many ways.

I hope to be there, generally go on the Wednesday and hope to see a few of you there. Driving distance for me so no overnight stay

Re: Who's going to Sign & Digital UK? Where to stay

Wednesday is normally the best Day I think...
I know John Thomson, John Harding etc already all going, Lorraine and others normally make an appearance too..
Ewan, Alan, keep us posted on when you would be good to meet up if your there too.

I'll be there all week.....I cant remember our stand numbers but I'm sure you'll find us and no Mr Lambie no bar on our stand but I'm pretty sure Nigel will have a bottle or two put to one side for you :wink:

I really missed exhibiting last year so I'm glad we'll be there this. :lol1:

Re: Who's going to Sign & Digital UK? Where to stay

We are going down on Tuesday, staying over for 2 nights in the Hilton which although pricey is just a short walk from the show.

I love going down to the show every year for a short break.......great for catching up with suppliers you normally only speak to on the phone and friends from the boards to catch up for a drink.

New kit is always worth a look even if it is way out the price range of the likes of me.......the tech always filters down to the cheaper end of the market. Every time you walk around it you see something you've missed.

Expecting 3D printers to be on show from more suppliers this year.

Re: Who's going to Sign & Digital UK? Where to stay

I'll certainly be there it's my birthday on the Tuesday so it's dangerous to go down on that day I may treat myself too much. I'm thinking Wednesday or Thursday. Only live hour away so not a problem getting there. Be nice to say hi to peeps from here. Hoping all being well with my little lad who has been in hospital recently and now out and recovering so should all be good to have a gander by the 25th.

Actually looking forward to it.

Re: Who's going to Sign & Digital UK? Where to stay

One of my colleagues told me about the cash back app "Quidco". I signed up a couple of weeks back and at the mo you get 12% back on mobile bookings for Hotel.com.
You actually get cash back on lots of online shopping sites, so well worth a look and if you're booking a couple of nights to attend Sign & dig then the cash back would pay for a beer or three?!!!!!

Re: Who's going to Sign & Digital UK? Where to stay

Looking at the rooms just now, oddly enough most of the big hotels on-site at the NEC are still available, but prices still higher than the norm. I am guessing this might be because the Commercial Vehicle show is not on at the same time this year. could the prices drop nearer the time? probably not! :lol1:
I always end up on Broad Street for food etc. on the second night so wondering if i am better having a hotel there, but then its back to the show the next day in a taxi... hmmm decisions decisions... :roll: knowing my luck ill end up kipping in a wheelie bin up some dodgy alley. :lol1: :lol1:

Re: Who's going to Sign & Digital UK? Where to stay?

its about 15 minutes in a taxi but train runs right to the show also.
prices i saw were much cheaper in the city. looked at the ones Cat suggested too and they were really good.
its just the back and forward to the show that's the killer because the on-site hotels are just a stone throw from the show.

Re: Who's going to Sign & Digital UK? Where to stay?

I will be going on the Wednesday this year. Gave last year a miss as the year before was very poor and did not see anyone off the boards at all :(
Thinking of booking a hotel so I dont have to travel back the same day. Prefer to get away from the area of the NEC to get cheaper prices.
Is there going to be a meet up in the bar area?

Hi all,

I'll be going down for 2 days (hopefully the Tuesday/Wednesday), and would love to meet some of you! I don't personally know anyone in the trade so would be great to make some new contacts :)

Great stuff, if there is a a collective meeting point/place/time then I'd love to know about it!

Not knowing anyone here there it'll be easy to miss people!

Failing that, I think I'm staying in the Travelodge in Fort Dunlop on the Wednesday(about 11miles away but was half the price!) so again, if anyone fancies a beer (or two) then I'll go with the crowd!

Wow I come to this thread belatedly and already I feel a good event in the making :D

Peter Wynne - Broad street would have been a cheaper option by the time you get your taxi back at stupid O'clock in the morning :D

Ewan Chrystal Im in the Hampton by Hilton on Broad Street so looking forward to a few pre drinks with you before the messy stuff :lol1:

Lorraine/Rob

Yes, we were all hiding behind the bar, John Harding shouted... "quick Lorraine and Jeff are coming". :-? :wink: :lol1:


The only reason I said that was that Rob had told me you were a Publican/Alcoholic and we were down to our last crate of beer so had to conserve supplies :lol1: I will make sure Rob gets more ale in this year instead of spending it on Taxis (eh Rob :wink: )

George/Martin - George If you owe Martin a beer and Martin owes me a beer (or two) George you buy me a beer and we will cut out the middle man :P

I will have a chat with Nigel Pugh make sure theres beers so theres a meeting point option too!!!

Jill shame you and Shane cant be there (you were/are very entertaining :lol1: )

Anyone not sure how to meet up (im -not sure we can put contact numbers here) just google V Signs/Hythe/Kent and youll have my mobile

We've decided to stay in the city centre this year and hop on the train each morning. So my little car will get left in the car park on Monday and not looked at again until we are all packed up ready to go on Thursday.

Note to self.....remember to pack plenty of headache tablets just incase I have the odd lemonade or two :wink:

I can't for the life of me remember the name John but I know it's very close to the station. It'll definitely save on taxi fares if we are within stumberling distance of the hotel from good old "Broad Street" :D

Alcoholic? Moi? How very dare you, lol.

We still don't know where you will all be hiding from us this year. Hang on, :banghead: did I really say that?

See you Wednesday, either in one of the Weatherspoons, or at the Roland stand.
Failing that, we'll be the two alkies staggering around swigging from our take-outs! :tongue:

Re: Who's going to Sign & Digital UK? Where to stay?

Spent Tuesday visiting the Photography, Sign, Safety and Maintec shows.

The photography show was the busies whilst the Safety show was deserted.

I was overwhelmed by the size of some the equipment at the sign show, but at least there was still plenty of interest for me.

I'll be down tomorrow...

The world has imploded after Clarkson has been sacked and Zain has left 1D, so I think it's safe to take a day off.

Re: Who's going to Sign & Digital UK? Where to stay?

I was impressed with Radecal stand!! Colorific and Roland collaboration makes me happy like tequila ;)

I brought some banner ups always eyelet my banners but the test the guy did was shocking how well a flat piece of plastic worked compared to eyelet. I may drop eyelets all together depends on cost.

Re: Who's going to Sign & Digital UK? Where to stay?

Well I think I get the prize for longest journey home. Left the NEC at 1.30pm and got in the house at 10.30pm. Should have taken about 6 1/2 hours but thanks to motorway traffic then 5 miles from home was the bus crash that was on the news so had to take a 2 hour detour.
Was a good couple of days though (mostly). Had Good craic with John, Rob, Scott and the Paperlinx guys, to name but a few.

Re: Who's going to Sign & Digital UK? Where to stay?

Great to meet up Ewan another great signboarder :D Sorry to hear your trials and tribulations but otherwise think you found it useful.

For my part I thought it was good, a better vibe recession over, not too much big machinery, a nice balance of stands, missed impact graphics presence although could have done with some better wrap demos etc.

I used to drive but now get the train its so easy and was in London covent garden by 6 to meet some friends for a beer or 5 before the last leg home.

Going for three days was good on a social and an event basis so I look forward to next year and doing it all again.

Rob Lambie Call me we need to fill in the blanks :P
