Long Beach THE NBM SHOW Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center
THE NBM SHOW provides three days of cross-market opportunities.

THE NBM SHOW is Coming to the Left Coast


The Pacific harbor town of Long Beach, California will play host to THE NBM SHOW and WRAPSCON Thursday-Saturday, August 15-17, and if you haven’t made plans to attend you still have some time.

California being its fifth stop in 2019, THE NBM SHOW serves the readers of Awards & EngravingSign & Digital Graphics,  and Printwear magazines, all produced by Broomfield, Colorado-based National Business Media. The show will be three days of networking, meeting with vendors and learning about new products, seeing live product demos, and a chance for you to deepen your knowledge through both classroom and in-the-hall training.

Once again, the show takes place at the spacious and inviting Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center.

WRAPSCON is returning for its fifth year and is its own show-within-a-show: the only annual trade show put on by wrappers, for wrappers. If you’re in the industry it’s a fantastic opportunity to meet with manufacturers and distributors, see live demos with the latest products, and network with other wrappers from all over the world. There’s plenty of fun to be had, too, with the WRAPSCON Wrap Olympics; WRAPSconnect, a freewheeling panel discussion featuring some of the world’s top wrappers; and the “Meet the Masters” happy hour.

As part of NBM’s Professional Training and Achievement Program, classroom training is offered each day of the show, and classes actually begin on Wednesday, the 14th. A complete rundown of all the classes can be found here.

Exhibit hall hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. Registration is free until August 14th; after that it costs $25 a person. Attendees are also invited to The BASH!, NBM’s after-hours party, at the Renaissance Long Beach Hotel on Friday evening, August 16, sponsored by Next Level Apparel, CIT, Johnson Plastics Plus, and ORAFOL Americas. Also, each attendee will have a chance to win $500 in Buyer Bucks each day of the show.
