Exclusive Coverage: THE NBM SHOW Gears Up for 2016

BROOMFIELD, Colo.— A new year means a new lineup for THE NBM SHOW, with seven events on the 2016 docket, including familiar locations and a new destination. Each show brings the opportunity for attendees to preview new products and the latest equipment, meet with suppliers, and explore new ways to grow their business and bottom line in multiple markets.

“We're expecting a successful year,” says vice president of NBM Events Sue Hueg. “It's been a long time since we produced seven events—we're all looking forward to the challenge. There’s always something new.”

The season begins March 10–12 at the Arlington Convention Center in Arlington, Texas. “Arlington is a great show during a peak season for the Printwear industry,” explains NBM senior trade show sales manager Katie Stocker. “It’s the perfect time of year to introduce new products or trends and attendees love the convenience of the location.”

There are a few changes from last year’s schedule, including the addition of THE NBM 2–DAY SHOW in Portland, Oct. 14–15. “We’ve never done a show in Oregon. That’s brand new for us. We always want to work toward making something a little bit better, a little bit different, a little bit brighter,” says Hueg.

The Portland show comes after multiple requests for THE NBM SHOW presence in the region. “The Northwest has been a request that the industry has asked for and NBM loves to try new things in the best interest of our clients,” Stocker notes.

THE NBM 2-DAY SHOW is also returning to Denver Nov. 11–12 after its successful debut in 2015. “Denver was a victory in 2015, bringing unique opportunities to an untouched region,” Stocker contends. “You could feel the excitement in the exhibit hall.”

The 2016 lineup includes: THE NBM SHOW March 10–12 at the Arlington Convention Center in Arlington, Texas; THE NBM B.I.G. SHOW on June 2–4 at the Indiana Convention Center & Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis; THE NBM B.I.G. SHOW on July 14–16 at the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center in Long Beach, Calif.; THE NBM SHOW on Aug. 18–20 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore; THE NBM 2-DAY SHOW on Oct. 14–15 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Ore.; THE NBM SHOW Oct. 27–29 at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, N. C.; and THE NBM 2-DAY SHOW Nov. 11–12 at the Crowne Plaza Denver Int’l Airport Convention Center in Denver.
