The Emirates Arena in Glasgow received an impressive makeover in aid of the Davis Cup that it hosted in September. Signs Express (Glasgow) had a large part to play in the complete transformation of the venue by providing all manner of signage to advertise the popular Tennis Tournament.

After previously working with the Café at the Emirates Arena, Signs Express (Glasgow's) excellent attention to detail and quality was noted by the venue and a recommendation from the Café's manager secured the centre the Davis Cup project. The project itself was very complex, requiring over 50 signs of varying types and sizes from exhibition stands to hanging banners, truss frames to A-boards, window graphics to interior wall signs. To make the project even more complex, Signs Express (Glasgow) had a very tight deadline to meet and it was only through the team's dedication and proactivity that they managed to create and install all of the signs in just 7 days. Signs Express (Glasgow) not only installed all the signage, they also checked in on the site daily to ensure that the high volume of visitors to the event had not damaged the signage. It was this level of service and the quick turnaround time that really impressed the client. Chris Carmody, Tournament Liaison Organiser, gave a glowing review of the Signs Express team, 'it was a pleasure working with the team at Signs Express (Glasgow), we gave them extremely tight deadlines to work to and were constantly putting demands on them to generate designs, manufacture items that had been overlooked and asking them to work through the night to achieve the required signage. When we asked if something was possible they always said yes and delivered on their promises. We wish all of our suppliers were as helpful as Signs Express (Glasgow).' The Emirates Arena celebrated its third birthday on 3rd and 4th October. This purpose built arena has a 200 metre, 6 lane athletics track, which is hydraulically operated to allow for other types of sporting events to be held. The athletics track has been used for annual events such as the Glasgow International Athletics Match and World Cup Gymnastics, but this was the first time that the Davis Cup has been held at the venue and it has certainly been a huge success. Indeed, the 2015 Davis Cup has been a sight to behold, with the underdogs rising through the ranks. This year's finals are being held on the 27th – 29th November in Belgium, starting with a battle between Belgium and Great Britain. The Belgians last reached the Final in 1904 and have never won the competition, while the British last played in the trophy decider in 1978 and won the last of their nine titles in 1936. Michael Kane, Signs Express (Glasgow's) Project Manager, was excited about the results of the Davis Cup and the centre's involvement in the event. 'Being a part of amazing events like this are really rewarding, especially since the GB team have done so well and Andy Murray was on home turf! My colleagues and I worked around the clock to complete this mammoth project and I think the results were very impressive, considering that the signage was designed to be temporary, but we made sure it was of the highest quality.'

The vast range of expertise that the team have has helped gain the trust of many prestigious companies and organisations, such as Glasgow's Science Centre, Slaters, Global Radio and various local councils.
