Explore New Opportunities in the Graphics Market, Coast-to-Coast!


With the unification of A&EPrintwear and Sign & Digital Graphics magazines into the new GRAPHICS PRO super-publication, we are thrilled to announce that THE NBM SHOW will enter the new year in 2021 as GRAPHICS PRO EXPO (GPX). GRAPHICS PRO EXPO is the natural evolution of decades of combined-market trade show success.*

This brand alignment will allow for future growth and clarity, while keeping the things that make THE NBM SHOW special intact.
With GRAPHICS PRO EXPO, you can still count on:

A unique three-markets-in-one approach

Second-to-none customer service and attendee/exhibitor experience

The most exciting COAST-TO-COAST show circuit there is!

Count on the combined power of GRAPHICS PRO magazine—in print and online—and GRAPHICS PRO EXPO as your partner in success.

*National Business Media, Inc. first produced three co-located events called The Printwear Show, The Sign Business Show and The Awards & Engraving Show in St. Louis. The year? 1992.
