Held at the iconic St George’s Park in Burton-Upon-Trent on Friday 27th January, with their theme of “Play to Win” they welcomed franchisees and senior team members from across the Signs Express network along with a number of suppliers and of course the Franchise Support Centre team were there to network and keep the day running smoothly (and on time!).
Kicking off with their plenary session, led by Managing Director Jonathan Bean and Network Development Director Aaron Davis, they proudly presented network achievements and the impressive strides they’ve made as they work through their five-year strategy, allowing them to celebrate the outstanding successes and progress made in 2022. A clear message that teams that play together, win together…
Along with networking and supplier exhibitions, the day also saw interactive demonstrations from their suppliers including: new digital displays by Allsee Technologies, laser capabilities by Trotec and printing, laminating and cutting essentials from SEDO and Epson leaving their franchisees with new possibilities to consider. Plus, their suppliers were on hand to form the panel for their themed Q&A which this year was focussed on the hugely important topic of environmental sustainability within the signage industry creating a great discussion and debate.
Wrapping up the daytime session of the event, they moved onto their much-coveted Sign Awards. With an abundance of talent and impressive projects throughout the year they were spoilt for choice, however the winners are:
A quick change into their finest outfits and they kicked off their Gala evening with drinks kindly sponsored by Metamark, a quick photo opportunity for the franchisees and their teams and onto a delicious meal with the perfect chance to unwind and socialise with their Signs Express colleagues and friends.
Fast forward three courses and they were ready to announce the last of their awards, the all important Signs Express Franchise Awards. Again, with an amazing network of talent, it’s a hard one to judge, but they’re delighted to announce the 2022 winners as:
