The Best Thing You Can Do for Your Business
Do you know what the single greatest thing you can do for your business is?
- Talking to your customers? Nope...
- Adding another employee or equipment? Nope...
- Mastering social media? Nope...
The greatest thing you can do for your business is to infuse it, and yourself and your staff with NEWNESS. It is attending a real-life industry event filled with real-life industry suppliers and fellow apparel decoration business owners!
Owning your own business is a lonely path and unless you are a 2nd generation professional, I doubt many of your friends or even your family understands what it is like to own a business, run the machines, make deadlines or deal with customer fallout.
But you know who does? Fellow embroidery and apparel decoration business owners.
We are such big believers in the value of bringing apparel decoration professionals together that this is the 18th year we've hosted NNEP's Embroidery Mart trade shows. This is one weekend to focus ON your business, instead of scrambling like gangbusters IN your business.
Industry experts & suppliers from all over the country come to come together at Embroidery Mart to spend two days helping you with your business. They come to Embroidery Mart with the intention of showing you their best sellers, their best apparel decoration ideas, the latest trends, the newest equipment and the best techniques.
Why are they willing to do this? Because they know that when your business grows, it benefits them as well!
In an ordinary life, it would take weeks to become familiar with the products of all the companies you will see at Embroidery Mart. At these trade shows for embroidery and apparel decoration professionals, you will get up to speed on all the newest products, techniques and design ideas in just 2 days! And even better, you will be READY when your customers ask, "What can you show me that is new?"
So how much does Embroidery Mart cost?
Just $20 per person!
Your registration not only includes both days at the trade show, you can attend any of the classes on held during the show!
These trade shows are all about YOU and helping you take your business where you want it to go.
Here's what attendees had to say about a past year's Embroidery Mart:
"That show was the best thing we could have done. It was a great show. We felt that we needed to check out new vendors. Your show was everything we needed." Doug Phillips, D and R Specialties
"I just had to tell you how much I enjoyed the show. I brought my husband along as kind of a weekend getaway for his birthday. I suggested that he take the class on machine maintenance and he came out asking all kinds of questions. We both learned a lot!" Phyllis Young, Young Uniforms & Scrubs
"You always take such good care of us and you are always there to make sure everything is handled. You run one of the best shows in the market and thanks so much for your kindness." Doug Ritch, Texmac Direct
Who would benefit the most from attending Embroidery Mart?
Any embroidery or apparel decoration business owner who realizes that to stay ahead of the competition, you need to know more and have access to more resources to out-create, outsell and out-perform the competition. You do NOT need to be a member of NNEP to attend, although... you and everyone from your business would attend for free IF you were a member!
Come learn from, network with and enjoy the presence of fantastic suppliers and peers at Embroidery Mart!
