James Grimaud, the owner of Logo Visions, a contract embroidery company out of Folsom, California, chats with Printwear about why he decided to exhibit at THE NBM SHOW in Sacramento and what he's hoping to get out of it. 

Q: Tell me a little bit about your background. Why did you choose to hop on board with THE NBM SHOW?

A: This is our first time with THE NBM SHOW being a vendor and as well as being an attendee. We are a local contract embroidery company here in Sacramento. Our business has been around for more than 15 years serving many retail companies across the region. We heard THE NBM SHOW was going to be a big hit in our town and wanted to get on board. This is the only show we plan to attend at this time but definitely interested in future possibilities. 

Q: What are your hopes for the show?

A: We would really like to use this show as an opportunity to reach out to other local business, not just in the Sacramento area but also the Bay Area who want to work with local vendors. We believe that face-to-face interactions form good lasting relationships. That is what has kept our clients with us year after year. 

Q: What can attendees expect from your booth?

A: In our booth, we will have a Bravo single-head embroidery machine so people can see what we do day in and out. This is provided by Commercial Embroidery Systems, who we have partnered up with for the show. We will have a drawing for some free prizes and examples of our quality work. Our team will be there to answer any questions you might have about your contract embroidery or fulfillment center needs.

If you aren't attending Sacramento this week, there are still plenty of opportunities to take advantage of THE NBM SHOW. Next month, the show heads to Portland, Oregon May 11–12, and there are multiple coast-to-coast stops through November 2018. See the full lineup here
