We are looking forward to a successful year to come! We are kicking off the 2011 calendar year with our marquis show SS S c h in Long Beach, CA. Held for over 30 years in the Long Beach Convention Center, ow Dir ecto r ISS Long Beach continues to be an industry professional favorite. At the show, you will network with 12,000 attendees encompassing 100,000 net square feet of space. You will view the offerings in approximately 900 booths and say hello to the over 30 brand new exhibitors. Since running your business the right way is vital to your success, we offer a comprehensive education program to secure a successful future. Screen printing, embroidery, digitizing and other decorating sessions – including one on rhinestone decorating - are offered. In total, there are 43 individual seminars and five full day workshops to learn from. Starting in 2010, we drastically reduced our conference pricing in order to allow you to reinvest in your education. Take advantage of an individual seminar for just $25 or a full seminar package for $99! The philosophy is simple, really. If your business grows, the industry will grow as well.
