—By Marley Jeranko
THE NBM SHOW marks off another stop on the 2018 schedule as it concludes a three-day show in Long Beach, California. The August 2-4 event at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center featured multiple cross-market networking and training opportunities as well as exhibitions from a wide variety of companies in the sign and digital graphics, awards and engraving and apparel decoration markets.
Also, for the second straight year, WRAPSCON was part of THE NBM SHOW at Long Beach, an annual show dedicated to professional graphic arts installers that draws attendees from all over the world.
“Southern California rolled out a warm welcome for THE NBM SHOW in Long Beach,” says vice president of publishing and markets, Dave Pomeroy. “We enjoyed a busy show that seemed to just get busier until the closing bell on Saturday. Adding to the excitement was the fourth annual WRAPSCON, which I believe was the best one yet.”
WRAPSCON, celebrating its fourth year this year, included live installation demonstrations; classroom training opportunities; a Q&A session with expert installers from around the world; and the WRAP Olympics, a three-day competition that was won by a team from Japan.
Pomeroy continues, “All in all, business was brisk and we appreciate everyone who came out to be a part of this show.”
