THE NBM SHOW held its second show of the year in Irving, Texas March 28–30. Attendees from the Dallas region gathered for three days to learn about what’s new, take advantage of face-to-face opportunities to rekindle relationships, and get acquainted for the first time with producers in the apparel decoration, awards and engraving, and sign and digital graphics industries.

“We’ve been producing our event in Texas for many years—mostly in the Dallas area. And, for many years, the show has brought a diverse group of exhibiting companies showcasing their equipment, products, and services for those in the business in the graphics industries we serve,” Sue Hueg, VP, NBM Events, says. “This year—although it was a first-time event in Irving at the Irving Convention Center—was no different.”

With 34 classes over four days, more than 750 people took the time to check out one or more of them for free. In addition to those opportunities, all attendees had the chance to win $500 in Buyer Bucks each day of the show. This show’s winners were Galen Martin of OTP, Kristi Robinson of Kris Tees LLC, and James Thompson of J & L Design. Attendees have 45 days to spend their winnings with the exhibitor of their choice. 

The next chance to attend an NBM SHOW is May 17–18 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
