Musicwear etc gets bigger and better in Texas

The leading uniform and accessory manufacturer has been enjoying making an even bigger impression in the USA.

  The company's award winning stand banners have been on display

Musicwear etc continues to make a mark on the worldwide stage after once again appearing at the 2019 TMEA Clinic and Convention in San Antonio in Texas.

Regarded as the USA's largest event for music educators, it attracts close to 30,000 attendees each year to the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Centre and adjacent Gran Hyatt Hotel — with the exhibitors open to delegates and visitors from 7.30am in the morning!

Bigger and better

Musicwear etc, Development Manager Lloyd Shipp told 4BR: "They say everything is bigger and better in Texas than anywhere else in the USA and they are not wrong. This is amazing event and one that has been hugely successful for us.

The interest in our range of products has been incredible — building on being presented with the 'Most Innovative Product' award last year here for our printed stand banners."
