Embroidery Mart showcases dozens of the top embroidery and apparel decorating industry suppliers. It’s a one-stop shopping experience to look for new embroidery equipment, digital garment printers, heat press equipment, rhinestones, thread, notions, stabilizers, apparel, digitizing software and blank products. See demonstrations of machines on the trade show floor. You can even try them before you buy them. See and touch the latest in garments and stabilizers to find the quality products your customers will love.
Hand in hand with finding the equipment, products and supplies you need are the educational opportunities that NNEP events always offer. Because NNEP believes that information is essential for business owners to succeed, all of the classes at Embroidery Mart are offered at no additional charge to all registered attendees. Sessions on pricing, sales and marketing, how to sell in the teams/leagues markets, making money with transfers, the latest trends and what it takes to succeed as an apparel decorator will be presented by NNEP co-founder and President Jennifer Cox and a lineup of industry experts.
