Here are some of the exhibitor comments from past markets:
“Our experience at Summer Market was terrific once again. The variety of retail solutions within the SSA showroom draws traffic that may never see our brand and product portfolio otherwise,” remarked Chris Robinson, National Sales Manager for Naturepedic Organic - Summer 2017.
Brice Hata, National Sales Manager for TMI Products and their REMarkable Pillow Line, had this to say about this Summer in the SSA Showroom, "2017 Summer Vegas Market was our best show ever! Quality leads and sales exceeded 2016 Summer Market by over 25%. Although the foot traffic may have seemed to be slow, the quality was high. Looking forward to Winter Market."
New exhibitor Peter Laurens of Baltic Natural/IVO Mattresses enthusiastically tells the SSA that “….for new, small and medium-sized bedding exhibitors, the SSA showroom is the best place to be at the Las Vegas Market. Our perception was that there was greater traffic at the showroom than at most of the individual showrooms elsewhere on the 15th floor.” - Winter 2018
Discussing the SSA’s role of reaching the furniture buyers, Chani Meyer of Supernal Recliner Beds stated,” This show was very busy and brought us many solid prospective leads, and has really helped establish Supernal in the furniture world. And, as always, we love seeing our booth neighbors, who have come to feel like family!” - Winter 2018
John at RoyRack said, "As always you have outdone yourself again, thank you for your hard work. The market flew by, we were pleased with the amount of traffic we received." - Summer 2017
Danican, who focused on their whole new private label container program, shared that, “We were very pleased with the amount of new qualified business relationships we were able to start at the Winter 2018 LVM due to showing in the well-attended Specialty Sleep Association showroom. As always, the support and camaraderie from SSA staff and member vendors helped make showing at LVM a successful week for the Danican team,” stated Jonathan Weingarten . - Winter 2018
First time exhibitor Brian Phillips of Swiss Bliss Mattress stated, “The Specialty Sleep Association was the perfect venue to make our nationwide debut. We were amazed by both the quantity and the quality of the buyer traffic. Each vendor/supplier within the space provided assistance, advice and referrals to the other vendors during the show. Swiss Bliss Mattress is thrilled to be part of the "Specialty Sleep Family". - Winter 2018
Tran Cong Qui at Kymdan responded about his experience at Summer Market, "Here are my two cents. As you know, the past Market was our first market and it was a great way to us to meet a lot of potential clients and partners. The SSA showroom definitely helped us meet a lot of people we otherwise would not have met if we were a stand-alone showroom." - Summer 2017
Stillman John of iAdjust/Vintage Furniture said, "The SSA room offered such a wide range of Buyers and at times had an electric energy about it. We enjoyed our spot and look forward to next year!" - Summer 2017
Butch Craig, National Sales Manager for Sleep and Beyond, said "Vegas 2017 Summer Market was the 12th showing for Sleep & Beyond. Results were the best Summer Market ever. As the old saying says, 80% of success is showing up, then 20% is following up. Thanks to SSA support in making Sleep & Beyond Top 3 Best Bedding Brands. Count on Sleep & Beyond showing up for the 2018 Winter Vegas Market."
The SSA has participated at the World Market Center since the opening of the Las Vegas Market in July 2005, beginning in the temporary pavilions, and then in 2011 moving into a permanent showroom. The SSA signed a permanent showroom lease, so that it’s member exhibitors can experience the convenience of a permanent showroom without a burdensome long-term commitment.
