Impressions Expo Fort Worth is coming up soon, from Sept. 30-Oct. 2, and we’re excited to exhibit this year. That’s because it’ll be the first time InkSoft, GraphicsFlow, and Printavo are exhibiting together, so there’s plenty of anticipation among all of us!

There’s a separate booth for each company, but we’re all close by, so you can check everyone out and catch up with the teams.

Here are booth numbers for the show:

  • InkSoft: 611
  • Printavo: 607
  • GraphicsFlow: 609

We’ll have special tradeshow offers for each brand, so you’ll want to make time in your busy schedule to visit us!

What is the Impressions Expo?

If you’ve never been to the show before, it’s an excellent opportunity for shop owners and printers. It’s one of the biggest tradeshows in the decorated apparel industry, featuring various classes, speakers, and exhibitors.

Check out the floor plan here if you want a detailed look at who’s exhibiting.

Why should I go?

For starters, you’ll get a chance to take advantage of special discounts from Printavo, InkSoft, and GraphicsFlow that we’ve put together just for the occasion. Plus, you’ll get to meet with us face-to-face and catch up with all three of our teams after almost two years of primarily virtual events.

Here are a couple of other reasons attending the show is a good idea for print shops like yours:

  • Education 
    • The Expo’s ImpressU conference program has tracks for all types of decoration methods like direct-to-garment, heat transfer vinyl, screen printing, and embroidery. These courses are perfect if you want to learn about a new technique or improve one of your specialties. There are also courses centered around topics like graphic design and business management. 
    • All three brands can give you in-booth demos and answer all your questions in person. 
    • The show features several speakers from various parts of the decorated apparel and promotional products industries. These presentations usually have a Q&A section so you can ask questions and get some perspective on running your business.
  • Networking 
    • As with any tradeshow, attending the Expo is a fantastic way to network with other business owners and peers in the industry. And, in turn, a solid opportunity to promote your shop.
  • Sightseeing
    • If you want to add a little extra fun to the trip, you can always check out the local hotspots after the show is wrapped for the day. The city of Fort Worth has a first-timers’ guide with helpful pointers on what to see and where to go while you’re there.

Making it count

If you haven’t been to a tradeshow in a while, or this is your first one, it might seem a little overwhelming, and it can be easy to get distracted. But, there’s more to it than just walking the floor all day long and filling a tote bag with swag like stickers, hats, and shirts (though that can be fun too).
