Uniting Passion and Community: Embark on an Exhilarating Journey with Ryonet & ROQ at GPX: Portland

Oregon Convention Center

In 2009, as a dedicated cement finisher from Portland's Local 555, I attended my first trade show in Atlantic City. This experience was a turning point, immersing me in an electrifying atmosphere teeming with passionate entrepreneurs eager to share and learn.

The trade show sparked a realization. I saw parallels between my craft of construction and the art of screen-printing t-shirts, such as meticulous attention to materials and a commitment to quality. This revelation ignited a passion that led me to embrace this vibrant industry.

Trade shows offer a unique opportunity to unite vendors and customers. Despite the competition, a close community exists, driven by mutual support and a thirst for knowledge. It's a place to share trade secrets, invaluable insights, and wisdom, contributing to each other's success.

At the GPX show, the Ryonet & ROQ booth sits at the heart of the action. It showcases state-of-the-art equipment, live printing demonstrations, and innovative start-up packages that fuel success for budding printers. The booth also features the ROQ Next automatic press, a production-level marvel. Attendees will leave inspired and stylish, with shirts printed in vibrant art.

After the show, attendees can mingle at a happy hour at Ex Novo Brewing. It's an occasion to connect with fellow enthusiasts, exchange stories, and foster lasting bonds. Ryonet & ROQ serve as unwavering supporters, fostering a sense of belonging and uplifting all, regardless of where they stand in their journey.

Ryonet is not just about providing innovative tools for screen printing; it is about creating a community that encourages learning and growth. Our commitment extends to Auto Level shops, driven by the same ethos that binds us all — a pursuit of knowledge and a passion for quality. Join us, find your community, and embark on an exhilarating journey with Ryonet.

Early on, we made a conscious decision to eradicate the word "customer" from our vocabulary. ROQ.US has no customers -- we only do business with Partners.

A customer is someone on one end of a transaction, but a Partner is a companion. A Partner is an ally.


A Partner is a trusted friend who is invested in the journey with you. That long-term camaraderie is what we aim to provide for our Partners.

As we continue to roll out the green carpet for you, we're honored to introduce you to our current roster of ROQ.US Referral Partners. These industry leaders are valued ROQ.US family members as You are and we're excited to bring You together with them to reinforce the product/service muscle behind your operation.
