O C T O B E R 2 0 1 7 In the News THE NBM SHOW Wraps Up in The Garden State THE NBM SHOW marks off another stop on the 2017 show schedule after wrapping up a three-day event in Secaucus, New Jersey. The Aug. 17–19 event at the Meadowlands Exposition Center featured multiple training opportunities and exhibitions from a wide variety of companies in the sign and digital graphics, apparel decoration and awards and engraving markets. "Attendees throughout the Northeast region joined us, many returning several times for classes and to meet face-to-face with exhibit- ing companies," says Sue Hueg, vice president of NBM Events. "We look forward to returning to the Meadowlands Exposition Center August 24–25, 2018." The Garden State city also marks THE NBM SHOW's first time in New Jersey. "We were impressed and delighted with the number of serious graphics producers that joined us in Secaucus. Because this was a new city for THE NBM SHOW, it was great to meet so many people who had never attended our show before," says Dave Pomeroy, NBM vice president of publishing and markets. "I think our multiple market format made a great impression. And free parking didn't hurt either." The next show will be in Charlotte, North Carolina, Oct. 26-28, 2017.

"They are being very supportive. We're receiving help from all over the country," Stabler says. "The sign industry is a fabulous industry and people are really stepping up to open up their pocketbooks and their hearts. It's just a fabulous industry and people are being very generous." She's been contacted from individual sign shops from as far away as Canada, she says. Stabler says the TSA has approximately 300 members—not just in Texas—and about 130 of those are in the affected areas. "Houston's one of our larger areas for members," Stabler says. "I think there's 90 in Houston alone." The help needed is immediate, she says, although, at press time, only the Red Cross, first responders and other emergency personnel were able to get into the affected areas.
