Training

GRAPHICS PRO EXPO offers classes to help you meet today’s needs and prepare for tomorrow’s opportunities. Learn new skills and gain new ideas to increase the momentum of your business – help your business grow and thrive!

Training in the Classroom

Training in the Classroom offers attendees the opportunity to learn about trending topics, technologies, processes, equipment and more, offered in two different skill levels by our exhibitors and select GRAPHICS PRO Magazine expert columnists… Classes are offered the day before the show starts, and throughout the show, in all-day and 90-minute sessions.


These classes are geared toward people who are brand new to a discipline or have some graphics experience but are looking to learn the fundamental techniques and/or add new profit centers in related markets.

Considered “higher learning,” these classes will take a deep dive into advanced techniques and/or the business aspect of running a graphics shop as it applies to the type of shop being run, i.e., apparel decoration, sign making or personalization product production.

Attending GRAPHICS PRO EXPO is essential for anyone in the business. I go every year and always learn something new. Meeting suppliers face-to-face has really helped leverage my product line, and the personal contacts I make are invaluable. GPX is a can’t miss event and already on my calendar for the next one.
