from the show director ImprInted sportswear shows 2013 w ISS Focus: A Successful Kickoff e’ve successfully started 2013 with the first Imprinted Sportswear Shows (ISS) event of the year: ISS Long Beach! The show was held Jan. 18-20 at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, Calif. The entire ISS staff is proud to reveal that the Long Beach event was our largest show since 2009 — proof that it always is a great way for the decorated apparel industry to begin the year. I hope you attended, as this event was your first chance in 2013 to keep current on market trends, learn new technologies, gain inspirational ideas and enhance your business productivity. If you were unable attend, here’s a look at what you missed: • Brand new product and technology launches • 350 exhibitors and 96,134 square feet of exhibit space • 46 new exhibitors representing 6,700 square feet of new products to ISS Long Beach • Our comprehensive conference program, containing 43 seminars and five workshops. • The new ISS Roundtable event was your initial opportunity to meet the ISS speakers and continue the conversation. Industry veterans Charlie Taublieb, Deborah Jones, Dane Clement, Greg Kitson and Jimmy Lamb offered 90 minutes of free-flowing conversation and additional education. • Also new, the six-track ISS Master Decorator Series of seminars, designed for decorators looking to expand or diversify their business’ offerings. Customers who attended four of the six sessions received an ISS Master Decorator Series Certificate of Completion and a T-shirt compliments of Anajet! • Five booth bingo players won $100 gift cards!
