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…

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.

Classes are offered the day before the show starts, and throughout the show, in all-day and 90-minute sessions.

Training in the Hall

Select exhibitors will be presenting 15-30 minute in-booth demonstrations throughout each day of the show in the exhibit hall.

 

2022 Recognized Professional Program

Attend any of the classes from the Training in the Classroom program to receive a Recognized Professional certificate.

This certificate is available exclusively to attendees at GPX and lets your customers know you are committed to keeping up with industry trends.
