FDM4 at PPAI and ISS

January, 2018

FDM4 at PPAI and ISS

Every year, FDM4 makes the effort to attend industry leading apparel trade shows.


Our goal is keep ahead of all the trends that are up-and-coming in the apparel industry. The best way to do that, in our opinion, is by attending trade shows and meeting with apparel manufacturers, distributors, and decorators on the ground floor.


Drawing thousands of suppliers, promotional consultants and industry associates from across the country and around the globe, the PPAI trade show will be our first stop in 2018.

While most companies attending come for inspiration; drawing from over 65 aisles of potential products, and education; while attending any of the 100+ sessions offered, FDM4’s key focus is networking and building opportunities.

We are excited to meet with the apparel industry’s leading companies, regular attendees, and any newbies just joining the event this year. Doing so allows us to keep a pulse on what’s trending in apparel.

An exciting opportunity, PPAI allows us to connect with over 1300  exhibiting companies.
