Shows in Kansas, Minnesota, Illinois.
The Decorated Apparel Expo (DAX) is traveling to three locations throughout the central US this spring:
• March 4-5 at the Jack Reardon Center in Kansas City, Kansas;
• April 1-2 at the Treasure Island Resort & Casino in Welch, Minnesota;
• And April 22-23 at the Tinley Park Convention Center in Tinley Park, Illinois.
Serving the screen-printing, embroidery, and digital garment decoration industries, the shows will feature exhibitors and educational events on everything from screen-printing basics to breaking into the signage industry to “How to Fail at Social Media.”
Attendees of all three shows will have a variety of opportunities to hear from industry consultant Charlie Taublieb. His all-day workshop discusses production strategies for new and experienced screen printers alike, while his brief morning session touches specifically on ever-persistent screen-making problems. Each show also offers “An Evening with Charlie,” a hands-on workshop focusing on added-value opportunities for T-shirt printers.
At the Illinois show, Screen Printing magazine presents prepress expert Thomas Trimmingham’s free seminar, “Secrets to Making Great Index Separations” for beginner and veteran screen printers and artists.
Darek Johnson of Signs of the Times magazine, sister publication to Screen Printing, will touch on untapped potential for screen printers in the signage and graphics markets in a free seminar at the Kansas and Minnesota expos.
Apparel guru Terry Combs will also offer his expertise at each of the three venues with sessions on niche markets for garment printers and maximizing production efficiency.
