The National Business (NBM) Show is making its way to the West Coast on 16th to 18th August 2012. FASTSIGNS International Inc., the worldwide franchisor of FASTSIGNS® visual communications, signage and graphics centers, will be exhibiting to educate attendees about franchise opportunities with the company.

The show, which will be held at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center, is designed to educate attendees on the latest in sign making, digital printing, apparel decorating, engraving, personalization, promotional products and more. FASTSIGNS Senior Vice President of Franchise Support & Development, Mark Jameson, will be on hand at Booth No. 320 to speak with independent sign shop owners about the company’s conversion program. In addition, on Friday, August 17, Jameson, along with company CEO Catherine Monson, will be hosting a luncheon (reservations required) to share information about the company’s new “What’s Keeping You Up at Night” campaign. This campaign is geared at teaching independent sign shop owners about the benefits of the FASTSIGNS conversion program.

“We have found tremendous success in travelling to the various NBM shows around the country and are looking forward with meeting sign and graphic store owners on the West Coast,” Jameson said. “As a growing number of independent sign shop owners are choosing to convert their business to a franchise to help them achieve long term growth, it is our goal to make them aware of the opportunities and incentives with FASTSIGNS. From improved buying power with vendors, effective local and national marketing, as well as up-to-date technology, we provide our franchise owners with a proven business model.”

As the company’s program continues to expand, FASTSIGNS has successfully converted more than 20 independent sign shops into FASTSIGNS centers within the past 24 months. The company also recently signed two conversion deals in Ontario, Canada. Both centers will be opening under the FASTSIGNS name in late summer or early fall 2012.

As part of the support provided to independent sign shop owners, FASTSIGNS offers financing for conversion agreements, for as little as US$6,000 down in addition to reduced royalties. Furthermore, the company offers the leading brand name in the sign and graphics industry and the latest technology, cost savings and relationships with national vendors and suppliers, comprehensive marketing and visual communications solutions and the benefits that come from networking with FASTSIGNS centers nationwide.
