Trends such as hybrid and virtual events are becoming increasingly widespread in the event industry. More and more attention is paid to sustainability and environmental friendliness in various forms.

Importance of signs for the event industry

Usually, the venue is selected for the audience and theme of the event, so the requirements for it differ significantly depending on the event. But there is a general requirement for all event locations: visitors must be comfortable. Therefore, navigation signs and numbers are needed everywhere.

Considering peculiarities of the event industry, which were described above, signs have the following meaning.

  1. If various events are held in the location at the same time, then all visitors should easily find the building, so you need a sign with the house number. And perhaps even a set of those, especially if the building has several entrances and exits. By approaching or driving up from either side, the event participant will be able to understand that they have arrived in the right place.
  2. Considering trends towards individualization and personalization of events as well as the importance of customer orientation, one needs to understand that a meeting or training can be attended by both mothers with children and people who move in wheelchairs. In other words, you need to have signs that indicate where there is a room for parents, and where there is a ramp for wheelchairs and a toilet, adapted for people with special needs. 
  3. Also, signs help with planning and logistics after all, it is easier for a supplier who brought something to a location for the first time to navigate when they were given clear instructions. For example: bring bouquets of flowers to the room with the number 304 on the first floor, and put flower pots in the conference hall on the second floor. Of course, it is easier for a person to do this quickly when they see signs with floor and room numbers and signs showing exactly where a particular room is located.
  4. As for creativity and innovation, then the signs also matter here. Because now more and more attention is paid to details, accessories, and the like. That is, the presence of «‎raisins»‎ in the room is considered a good tone. For example, in the form of navigation signs, that attract attention with creative design. The use of modern materials is also welcomed: acrylic glass, steel, etc.
  5. It is worth noting that high-quality signs made of durable and eco-friendly materials, such as wood, steel, acrylic glass, do not harm the environment and do not have a negative impact on the health of visitors to the premises. In addition, they can be used for many years without the need for replacement. In other words, such products support the concepts of sustainability and environmental friendliness.
