12 • July 2017 • S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S Indy Hosts Another Successful NBM SHOW The Indiana Convention Center & Lucas Oil Stadium was the home of yet another successful NBM SHOW in Indianapolis June 1-3. With a full exhibit floor and aisles full of attendees, the show came off as a win- ning event in a city that has a long with the event. THE NBM SHOW has been coming to Indianapolis since 1990, and proves to be a pull from not only the immediate region but several surrounding Midwestern states. "We enjoyed seeing old friends and making new ones in three power-packed days of exhibits at THE NBM SHOW in Indianapolis this year," says Dave Pomeroy, vice president of publishing and markets for Broomfield, Colorado-based National Business Media. "Exhibitors enjoyed an extremely busy hall from start to finish, and buyers got their share of familiar and new exhibitors as well. Indy never disappoints." THE NBM SHOW has four more locations to go in 2017: July 20-22 in Long Beach, California, a show which will also feature WRAPSCON; Aug. 17-19 in Secaucus, New Jersey; Sept. 8-99 in Denver; and Oct. 26-28 in Charlotte, North Carolina. THE NBM SHOW will return to Indianapolis in 2018, this time in the fall, from Sept. 13-15.
