THE NBM SHOW visits Milwaukee May 17-18.

THE NBM SHOW Heads to the City of Brews and Brewers

Registration is now open for THE NBM SHOW’s first-ever stop in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The two-day event takes place May 17–18 at the Wisconsin Convention Center and houses a myriad of educational and networking opportunities for producers in the sign and digital graphics, awards and engraving and apparel decorating industries.

Milwaukee may be a new city on THE NBM SHOW roster, but Sue Hueg, VP, NBM Events, says, "It’s your opportunity to meet face-to-face with exhibitors who will be showcasing their latest equipment, products, services, and supplies. It’s your opportunity to see, touch and try! It’s your opportunity to learn so you can grow or expand your business. It’s your opportunity to save."

The exhibit hall opens on Friday, May 17, at 10 a.m. and closes at 4 p.m. On Saturday, May 18, the show opens at 10 a.m. and goes until 3 p.m. It houses business solutions, product demos, training sessions, and face time with industry suppliers, manufacturers, and producers. 

For attendees looking to take full advantage of the show’s education programs, Training in the Classroom begins the day before the show opens. Training in the Classroom hours are as follows:

Thursday, May 16: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Friday, May 17: 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Saturday, May 18: 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Advanced registration for THE NBM SHOW is free and includes entrance to the exhibit hall, unlimited training classes, access to the Recognized Professional Program, and admission to the After Hours Networking Reception on Friday, May 17. Registration after May 16 is $25 per person.

Along with these opportunities, each attendee is automatically entered to win the $500 Buyer Bucks giveaway. Buyer Bucks are redeemable at any participating exhibitor during the show and 45 days following the event.

Media sponsors for THE NBM SHOW include Sign and Digital Graphics, Printwear and Awards & Engraving magazines.

"We’re so excited to bring our event to this great Midwestern city. Another first for us, it’s known as a big city of little neighborhoods and the largest city in Wisconsin," says Hueg. "On Lake Michigan’s western shore, it’s recognized for its breweries, Harley-Davidson, and boasts a downtown statue affectionately known as The Bronze Fonz, and now as a host city for THE NBM SHOW. We invite you to spend your days in the exhibit hall and in the classroom—all classes are complimentary—and your evenings enjoying this lively city. See you in Milwaukee!"
