Training

GRAPHICS PRO EXPO offers classes to help you meet today’s needs and prepare for tomorrow’s opportunities. Learn new skills and gain new ideas to increase the momentum of your business – help your business grow and thrive!

Training in the Classroom

Training in the Classroom offers attendees the opportunity to learn about trending topics, technologies, processes, equipment and more, offered in two different skill levels by our exhibitors and select GRAPHICS PRO Magazine expert columnists… Classes are offered the day before the show starts, and throughout the show, in all-day and 90-minute sessions.


These classes are geared toward people who are brand new to a discipline or have some graphics experience but are looking to learn the fundamental techniques and/or add new profit centers in related markets.

Considered “higher learning,” these classes will take a deep dive into advanced techniques and/or the business aspect of running a graphics shop as it applies to the type of shop being run, i.e., apparel decoration, sign making or personalization product production.

Testimonials

What our attendees have to say

I really enjoyed the show and learned tons of new tricks to better my business. I’m grateful for this experience and the opportunity to meet with vendors that related to my line of business. There is really everything for anyone who works with designing/producing custom graphics.

This has always been an event that I’ve looked forward to each year, and I wanted to thank you for a very nice event yesterday. I got a lot out of the UV printing seminar in the morning and had good discussions with a few vendors as well.

Judy Kriehn

The amount of new information I gain both in training sessions and talking to the exhibitors on the floor is fantastic!
