Sign & Digital UK (SDUK) has teamed up with Hexis to host this year’s Battle UK Wrap Contest.
With two heats and a semi final taking place on the show floor each day, participants will compete in timed, 10 minute heats. The winners from each day will go head to head in the grand finale, on SDUK’s closing day – Thursday 4 April.
Rudi Blackett, Sign & Digital UK portfolio director, said: ‘The USA, Berlin, Estonia – the Hexis contest has been all over the world, and this year we are thrilled to play host, bringing the spectacle to our fantastic Sign & Digital UK visitors.
‘We can’t wait to see all the skilled wrappers battling for the winner’s crown and the many other excellent prizes up for grabs.’

Stuart Shenton, Hexis sales and marketing manager, added: ‘The battle will gradually get harder, round by round, as different materials are introduced – all manufactured in France by Hexis.
‘The judges will score each contestant on accuracy of fitting, speed, quality of finish, health and safety at work, work ethic and technique. Let the best wrapper win!’
Over £5500 worth of prizes and the ‘best UK installer’ crown are up for grabs.
