At THE NBM SHOW, each attendee who receives a badge has the opportunity to win $500 in Buyer Bucks. Buyer Bucks can be spent with any exhibitor at the show and drawings happen daily. NBM (National Business Media) reimburses the chosen exhibitor and winners have up to 45 days to make a purchase. Winners do not need to be present to claim their prize.
While attending THE NBM SHOW in Secaucus, New Jersey in August of 2017, Joanne Wagner was announced the winner of the show’s Buyer Bucks. Wagner is the owner of Custom Engraving Studio, an awards and engraving shop located in Dover, Pennsylvania that specializes in corporate recognition awards, as well as trophies for sporting events. She had attended THE NBM SHOW for the past three years and returned to meet with vendors that the business works with, in addition to checking out the various training opportunities to get educated on the latest equipment, products, and services in the awards and engraving market.
“I was shocked when I heard my name announced,” Wagner explains, “I was surprised, excited, and overjoyed all in one – I couldn’t tell you the last time I won anything.”
Using her winnings, Wagner purchased a Trotec Speedy 300 Laser to “expand our engraving possibilities and offer more engraving ideas and options to our customers.” She adds, “It has increased our business volume as we are now able to offer more personalized gifts and items to our customers that we weren’t able to offer them before.”
Wagner says she will be back for another round in Meadowlands, New Jersey this August 23-24.
“It’s always a learning experience attending THE NBM SHOW, whether its attending classes or just visiting and talking to the vendors, learning about new items available and discussing and resolving common issues involved with the engraving process.”
