THE NBM SHOW Heads to California Next Month


THE NBM SHOW gears up for the West Coast with a stop in Santa Clara, California, on February 7–8. Registration is free until February 6. 

“Santa Clara is in the heart of Silicon Valley, where businesses are strong, established, and looking to grow into new markets,” comments Katie Ditallo, senior trade show sales manager for THE NBM SHOW. 

The February show offers professionals a chance to network, take classes, meet with industry professionals, and research purchases of equipment. Some of the educational opportunities at the Santa Clara show include Training in the Classroom sessions like:

The class also discusses using mixed-media techniques like combining embroidery and DTG.
