Noted: The Greeting Card Expo is a new event designed with greeting card makers in mind. It’s the only event in the U.S. built by the greeting card industry, for the greeting card industry. And it is coming to San Francisco in May, 2020. We are very excited to be hosting Noted in a new location for 2020!

*Noted: The Greeting Card Expo – See you In San Francisco! 

The newest show in our industry, *Noted: The Greeting Card Expo®, brought over 150 publishers and our retailer colleagues to Brooklyn, NY to show their support for the greeting card community and share their latest products. Make plans to join us in San Francisco, CA for Noted 2020 May 1 – 3. Show off your new products, and rake in the orders, just in time for Christmas buying!

We will ask you to supply information to allow us to properly register you, such as a business card, website, or license, to indicate your role in the greeting card industry. We do require you to pay in advance as it is difficult and time-consuming to verify your business on the day of the event. We want you to enjoy the community and network right away rather than delaying your entrance to the event.
