Charlotte Signals End to THE NBM SHOW’s 2018 Schedule
—By Tony Kindelspire
The first weekend in November, Charlotte, North Carolina, played host to THE NBM SHOW, marking the final show on its 2018 schedule.
“‘The party’s over.’ ‘All good things must come to an end.’ ‘That’s all folks.’ ‘All’s well that ends well.’ All great quotes to help convey that THE NBM SHOW 2018 came to a spectacular close last week in Charlotte,” says Sue Hueg, vice president of NBM Events, which produces THE NBM SHOW for Broomfield, Colorado-based National Business Media. “If you were there with us, you experienced it first-hand. If not, then put Nov. 8-9, 2019, on your calendar right now—that’s when we’ll be back in Charlotte. In the meantime, if your travels bring you out west, please join us in Phoenix, Arizona, Feb. 1-2, where THE NBM SHOW 2019 begins.
“Stay well and dream big,” Hueg adds. "See you next year."
THE NBM SHOW’s 2018 tour started back in March in Arlington, Texas, and nearby Irving shows up on the 2019 schedule. In all, eight cities were visited this year, giving attendees in those seven states a chance to enjoy the cross-market appeal that THE NBM SHOW delivers for the readers of Sign & Digital Graphics, Awards & Engraving and Printwear magazines.
“The show in Charlotte was a strong end to a strong year for THE NBM SHOW,” says Dave Pomeroy, vice president of publishing and markets at NBM. “We can’t wait to do it again in 2019, as we bring the event to eight great cities, with packed exhibit halls and excellent classes from the best teachers in the industry.”
Veteran attendees know but for the uninitiated, THE NBM SHOW offers training both in the classroom and in the hall, and it’s a golden opportunity for networking with fellow business owners, with vendors and manufacturers, and for exploring other products or services which you may not currently offer but might want to consider in order to boost your bottom line.
Aside from the business opportunities, NBM seeks to deliver a fun experience to attendees, with After Hours events in each city and a chance for one attendee to win $500 in Buyer Bucks each day of the show.
THE NBM SHOW’s 2019 schedule is:
- Feb. 1-2—Phoenix, Arizona
- March 28-30—Irving, Texas
- May 17-18—Milwaukee, Wisconsin
- July 25-26—Greater NYC/Meadowlands, New Jersey (Meadowlands Exposition Center)
- August 15-17—Long Beach, California (presented with WRAPSCON)
- Sept.—12-14—Columbus, Ohio
- Oct. 11-12—Denver, Colorado
- Nov. 8-9—Charlotte, North Carolina
“We hope to see you at one or more stops along the way in 2019, starting with Phoenix in February,” says Pomeroy. “In the meantime, thanks again for a great 2018 and we wish you a wonderful holiday season.”
