Event Recap: 2014 NBM Show in Los Angeles

The dust has settled, and all of our equipment, literature and miscellaneous other supplies have finally been put away (well, mostly). We’re tired, our voices hoarse from three days of non-stop talking, but above all, we’re grateful.

The Los Angeles NBM Show was wildly successful for us. We got to see several of our existing customers and vendors, and connected with many potential customers. We were excited to show off all of our new equipment, such as the dye sublimation printer and the heat press, as well as having the support of so many of our vendors. We had numerous Manufacturer Representatives in our booth, discussing the latest and greatest tools, equipment, and methodologies to those who visited in our booth. A BIG Thank You to everyone who made the trip out to see us!

Event Preview: 2014 NBM Show in Los Angeles

IEC at 2014 NBM-Los Angeles Show

The Southern California NBM Show has officially changed cities and seasons. The 2014 NBM Show has relocated to its new home at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, CA, and will be held January 9th – 11th.

Thanks to its new central location, the NBM Show is now much easier to attend. You no longer have to dedicate an entire work day to go and it’s close enough that you can send your staff to the educational seminars.

Since this is the only show geared for our industry on the West Coast for nine months (the SGIA EXPO in Las Vegas isn’t until late October), IEC is bringing a HUGE selection of equipment and materials to NBM-LA so you have the chance to see and demo all of the latest products in one place. We’ve even increased our booth size (its the largest we’ve ever had!) so we can accommodate all of the products and manufacturers’ representatives that we are bringing to this show. Check out our NBM Show Product Highlights below (click the link to jump down the page).

IEC at SGIA Orlando 2013

Ed Urlik and Ron Reyes (Black Flag)

Me with Ron Reyes, singer for Black Flag

This year marked the first time we have exhibited at the SGIA Show in Orlando. SGIA Orlando was a unique experience, as we have never exhibited so far away from home – over 2,500 miles! Regardless, it was definitely time well spent. The show gave us the opportunity to see many of our existing customers and vendors, as well as meet several new customers from all over the United States and South America.

While exhibiting, I was grateful to have the opportunity to catch up with good friends Göran Johansson, the inventor of the ROLLSROLLER, and Ron Reyes, the singer of Black Flag. I spent some quality time with Göran’s team at the show. I also hung out with Ron at the IEC booth, where we discussed the graphics industry, and reminisced about the old days of the both of us playing music for the same record labels: Cruz & SST Records.
