Finally! A wraps event, for wrappers, by wrappers!
Join the excitement!
National Business Media, the proud producers of WRAPS and Sign & Digital Graphics magazines and THE NBM SHOW, presents the event for graphics installers: WRAPSCON July 20-22, 2017. With the huge potential for growth in the graphics market, especially vinyl wrap professionals serving the vehicle wrap advertising, commercial fleet graphics and other related graphics markets, WRAPSCON has quickly become the must attend event of the year.
“We are putting together a very dynamic floor—one that represents most of the major players in the wraps market,” says Damon Cincotta, THE NBM SHOW/WRAPSCON national trade show manager. “Many will be doing live demos in their booth and/or teaching a class. If you’re new to the wraps game or if you’ve been doing it for decades, there will be something at WRAPSCON for you.”
We are bringing in the best graphics installers and the leading manufacturers and distributors in the business under one roof, with a national audience of installers, to share tips and tricks, install techniques, and the latest products to boost this rapidly growing market. Come see the latest in digital printing, vinyl technology, lamination, vehicle templates, wrap specific artwork and tools. If you have skin in the WRAPS game, then you NEED to be here!
This moderated morning session will be an in-depth panel discussion covering everything you need to know about running a wraps business. There will be a 45-minute moderated session followed by 30 minutes of Q&A. This can’t-miss event fills up quickly. Registration for this event will open April 10, 2017.
