BROOMFIELD, Colo.—The capital city of America’s most populous state is the next stop for THE NBM SHOW, as the event hits Sacramento, California April 13–14. There’s still time to secure no-cost registration, but after April 12, registration costs $25 per person.

The show is geared toward the markets served by the three graphics-oriented publications from National Business Media: Printwear, Sign & Digital Graphics, and Awards & Engraving magazines.

The cross-market dynamic is a big part of THE NBM SHOW’s mission to provide business owners the ability to engage face-to-face with manufacturers, suppliers, and other shop owners. Having all three publications represented provides opportunities for attendees to learn about the latest trends and equipment in the market they serve and explore new products and services to boost their bottom line.

Education is a key component of THE NBM SHOW, and Sacramento offers plenty of classroom opportunities to learn. The classroom training kicks off April 12 with an all-day presentation entitled “Direct-to-Garment Printing Using the Epson F2100 and F2000 Printer,” sponsored by Equipment Zone. All classroom and in-the-hall training sessions are free for attendees.
