THE NBM SHOW wrapped up its 2019 schedule in Charlotte, North Carolina Nov. 8-9 at the Charlotte Convention Center. 

Throughout the past year, the team behind THE NBM SHOW worked hard to provide face-to-face educational opportunities across the country for the garment decorating, awards and engraving, sign and digital graphics industries. 

THE NBM SHOW’s 2019 tour kicked off in Phoenix, Arizona, back in February. It has since stopped in Irving, Texas, and Columbus, Ohio, as well as several places in between. 

Decoration experts, industry suppliers, small business owners, hobbyists, and manufacturers traveled to connect all year, and Charlotte was no exception. 

"Thanks to the exhibitors and the many attendees at THE NBM SHOW in Charlotte, we ended the year with the strongest show imaginable. Next year, the momentum continues," says Dave Pomeroy, president of National Business Media, Printwear's parent company.  

Now that the Charlotte stop for THE NBM SHOW has come to an end, THE NBM SHOW can take the last couple months of the year to gear up for eight more shows in 2020. 

THE NBM SHOW’s 2020 schedule is as follows:

  • Feb. 7-8 — Santa Clara, California
  • March 12-14 — Irving, Texas
  • May 15-16 — Providence, Rhode Island
  • June 11-13 — Indianapolis, Indiana
  • July 17-18 — Richmond, Virginia
  • Aug. 13-15 — Long Beach, California
  • Sept. 25-26 — Cleveland, Ohio
  • Nov. 5-6 — Charlotte, North Carolina

"We’ll return to some favorite locations like Charlotte, but also bring the show to fresh venues in Santa Clara, Providence, and Richmond," Pomeroy continues. “We strive to bring the best trade show value and experience to exhibiting companies and buyers alike, connecting both in ways and places that nobody else can offer."

Media sponsors for each event include Printwear, A&E, and Sign & Digital Graphics magazines.
