Networking opportunities abound at THE NBM SHOW

The Countdown to Phoenix is On


THE NBM SHOW’s first stop of 2019 will hit the Valley of the Sun in just a week’s time. Phoenix is the first of what will be eight stops across the U.S. this year, and that’s eight opportunities for you to take advantage of the cross-market appeal that is the hallmark of THE NBM SHOW.

Aimed toward those in the sign and digital graphics, apparel decorating and awards and engraving industries, THE NBM SHOW offers a great chance to network, meet with distributors and manufacturers, socialize with business owners such as yourself, and explore the possibilities of offering products or services to your customers that you don’t currently offer. Not only might they serve to complement what you’re already delivering but they could add to your bottom line.

“The exhibitors of THE NBM SHOW like reaching new buyers in new cities. When the new city is Phoenix, in February, they love it,” says Dave Pomeroy, vice president of publishing and markets at National Business Media. “We’re excited for the show to start—we’ve got great classes lined up, two power-packed days of exhibits, a fun After Hours Reception on Friday—plenty of great reasons to join us.”

A key component of THE NBM SHOW is education. You’ll be able to take advantage of classroom and in-the-hall training throughout the two days of the show.

The classroom training actually begins on Thursday, Jan. 31, with four opportunities to learn. From 10 a.m.–4 p.m. that day, Digital Art Solutions will present a class called “Mastering Multi-Decoration with a Vinyl Cutter;” and at the same time in a different classroom, Equipment Zone presents “Increase Your Sales & Decrease Your Stress with the DTG Printing & Marketing Experts.”

Also on that Thursday, two other classroom training opportunities will occur, both lasting from Noon–1:30 p.m.: “How to Position Your Transfers,” from Transfer Express; and “Take a Test Drive with Sandcarving,” presented by IKONICS Imaging. All of the classes are no charge.

A few companies have signed up to offer HANDS ON training in their booths, giving you up-close and detailed information on particular topics or pieces of equipment. Participating companies holding demos both Friday and Saturday include PDS Equipment; Mimaki USA; and IEC.

In addition to networking and training opportunities, registrants have a chance to win $500 in Buyer Bucks each day of the show. Buyer Bucks are redeemable at any participating exhibitor during the show and for 45 days after the show closes.

On Friday, from 5–6:30 p.m., join us for the After Hours Networking Reception, sponsored by Next Level Apparel, CIT and STAHLS’.

The Phoenix Convention Center will be the site of THE NBM SHOW in the desert.

Registration up to 24 hours in advance of the show is free, and after that it’s $25. To register for the Phoenix show, click here.
