Events

At NNEP, we love everything we do.  However, a certain elevated degree of excitement always surrounds our industry and embroidery trade shows, where you get to interact and connect in person – with other apparel decorators, embroidery business owners and with industry suppliers.

NNEP's 2017 Embroidery Mart embroidery trade show dates

Industry and embroidery trade shows provide the best value for your education, networking, and product sourcing needs. NNEP’s Embroidery Marts offer unparalleled opportunities for embroidery professionals and apparel decorators and suppliers to come together, to build relationships, to brainstorm and to network. 

  • For apparel and promotional products decorators, it is a great chance to meet vendors of interest – all together in one location, all in one weekend.
  • For industry suppliers, it is often the best way to meet so many qualified buyers in such a short time. Encourage your favorite suppliers to exhibit at the NNEP Embroidery Marts!

Embroidery trade shows like Embroidery Mart-NASHVILLE and Embroidery Mart-COLUMBUS offer a rich learning experience. What happens in the classrooms and in the exhibit hall is important – you made the commitment to be there and are not as distracted as you can be at your business. The conversations in the hallways, at the lunch tables and in the exhibit hall contribute greatly to the information exchange. Embroidery trade shows provide a rich, targeted, and focused learning experience that can significantly impact the growth of your business.NNEP Professional Development ProgramParticipate in NNEP’s Professional Development Program at either Embroidery Mart embroidery trade shows.

2 Regular Guys Podcast on 6/28/13, talking about Embroidery Mart and industry shows.

Click the 2 Regular Guys image to hear a podcast of Jennifer Cox being interviewed about Embroidery Mart.

Here is a quote from an attendee of Jennifer’s class at Embroidery Mart in Nashville:

Dear Jennifer:
I just want to drop you a line thanking you for all of your hard work and efforts going into the NNEP show in Nashville last weekend. I enjoyed the classes they were spot on for what is needed to succeed in today’s competitive market.
When I was at your Saturday class, you changed my way of thinking.   Although I have a multihead shop with a 6 head and single head, I am always thinking that I am too small to go after the big fish.  When you mentioned how you got started with the GM account, it clicked.
Now I am thinking why not.  What an epiphany– it was one of those light bulb moments.  Thank you for helping me break through the wall of small time thinking…  I really enjoyed your class.

Thanks again,
Susan Frost CQA, CQE

    Enjoyed the Embroidery Mart so glad we were able to make the 10 hr drive. It gave me a lot to think about. I am in the process of trying to re-do my pricing, go over the marketing handout you gave in your class, focus on certain companies to contact to try to pick up business.

    Thanks for your valuable information in your classes.
