Impressions Expo was held in the US from January 17 to 19, 2020. Impressions holds an unique place on the fashion trade show calendar. This is where representatives of brands and apparel companies go to see what is new in the basics market and check out the latest in machines that print graphic images on tees. This is an event where companies exhibit their new approaches to the production of T-shirts and other basics. Everything from blank apparel and textiles to digital printers, embroidery machines, screen printers and screen printing supplies were on display. About 15,000 people attended the show, which included 11,000 qualified buyers who were confirmed as representing companies with proven track records in producing and distributing T-shirts. For the first time in its history, the trade show also produced a giant party.
Impressions unveiled a rebranding effort at the show. The new name comes from the trade show’s magazine, which is also called Impressions. The show has aligned with its publication to create a single platform to serve its communities as opposed to presenting an array of individual shows, magazines and digital offerings. It was all about celebrating the industry and the impact these businesses have on millions of people’s lives every day.
