Imprinted Sportswear Shows (ISS), owned and operated by Emerald Expositions, a leading operator of business-to-business trade shows in the United States, will now be known as Impressions Expo. The Impressions Expo brand reflects the ISS brand’s alignment with Impressions magazine, a leading B2B publication canvassing the decorated-apparel industry and longtime ISS sponsor. The goal is to provide attendees with authoritative, informational content, trade show interactions and award-winning conferences that are benchmarks of both prestigious brands.
The new name is meant to better reflect what the show is about and not just sportswear. Events will continue to showcase the same product categories with a name that now encompasses the entire decorated-apparel industry, from raw goods/ fabrics to the finished, packaged product. There is no change in the show or the core markets it serves. It will continue to be dedicated to the garment and non-wearable decorating professionals seen at all its events today and embrace the evolution in technology, products and services of both new and old needed by attendees as they relate to the decorating process.
This transition will start with the trade show in California, January 17 to 19, 2020. Among the product categories are screen printing, embroidery, direct-to-garment printing, blank apparel, sublimation, heat transfers, product packaging, promotional products and more.
