ISA Sign Expo, Other Tradeshows + Conventions Postponed, Canceled or Rescheduled

Sign Expo rescheduled to Aug. 22-25. Additional tradeshows and conventions affected, too.

The International Sign Association (ISA; Alexandria, VA) has postponed the 2020 Sign Expo, citing developments with COVID-19 (coronavirus). The show will still be held at the Orlando Convention Center in Orlando, FL, but from Aug. 22-25. Pre-conference sessions will be held on Aug. 22, and the exhibit hall will be open from Aug. 23-25. The show was originally scheduled for April 1-4.

A portion of the statement from the ISA Board of Directors reads, “Given the latest developments with COVID-19, the ISA Board and staff were not confident we could deliver the exceptional experience the industry deserves. In addition, many of you contacted ISA staff to share your concerns. ISA’s purpose is to listen and serve the industry. We heard you.

"The ISA Board believes that rescheduling ISA Sign Expo provides the most viable solution to bring the entire sign, graphics and visual communication industry together and to get business done."

ISA President Lori Anderson joined Signs Unscripted to explain the rationale behind the postponement, and to also address questions from our audience and Signs of the Times.

Per ISA, it is still working through many details of the rescheduling. Visit for updated information and for additional questions, please email
