THE NBM SHOW says farewell to 2018 after closing out its last stop of the year in Charlotte, North Carolina Nov. 2–3. 

Jackie Ramsier, the event manager for the two-day show, notes that "THE NBM SHOW felt Charlotte’s southern hospitality last week. Attendees and exhibitors had a great time in the exhibit hall, in classes, and at the After Hours networking event. We couldn’t have ended the 2018 show schedule on a higher note, and we’re looking forward to our return in 2019!"

The event welcomed producers in the apparel decoration, awards and engraving, and sign and digital graphics markets for two full days of education, demos, networking, and prospecting.

NBM's senior trade show manager Katie Ditallo states, "It was a great show to cap the year off for THE NBM SHOW! Charlotte is a wonderful city with a thriving market, which proved to be strong as the aisles were packed. Attendees were able to grow their business with a wide variety of products, services, and education available to them."

The party’s over. All good things must come to an end. That’s all folks. All’s well that ends well.

"All great quotes to help convey that THE NBM SHOW 2018 came to a spectacular close last week in Charlotte. If you were there with us, you experienced it first-hand. If not, then put November 8–9, 2019 on your calendar right now—that’s when we’ll be back in Charlotte. In the meantime, if your travels bring you out West, please join us in Phoenix, AZ February 1–2, where THE NBM SHOW 2019 begins. Stay well and dream big. See you next year," says Sue Hueg, VP of NBM Events.
