LOS ANGELES – Fresh off the heels of the third annual Hollywood edition of the XBIZ Retreat, XBIZ is pleased to announce the upcoming Miami XBIZ Retreat is set for May 31 to June 4.

The summer edition of the invitation-only XBIZ Retreat returns once again to the tropical paradise of Miami. This year, the XBIZ Retreat relocates to its own dedicated venue, bolstering its signature intimate ambiance.

Held twice a year, the XBIZ Retreat features a packed, all-inclusive itinerary anchored by private one-on-one meetings between buyers and vendors, along with opportunities for networking over meals and special events.

The Hollywood XBIZ Retreat was held Jan. 13-16, as part of the seven-part XBIZ 360 event series. The event brought together top international vendors and buyers for private meetings and exclusive dinners along with access to XBIZ 360’s slate of conference events, including the 2015 XBIZ Exec Awards and the star-studded XBIZ Awards.

Attendees of the most recent edition of the XBIZ Retreat offered the following remarks about their experience.

Deluxe Distributors’ Ed Braunstein said, “Top-shelf vendors, buyers, accommodations and activities. The XBIZ Retreat without question is the No. 1 show not to be missed.”

“The XBIZ Retreat is an extremely valuable show to attend,” Electric Lingerie national sales director Zach Goode said. “There is no substitute for one-on-one meetings with the top buyers in our industry.”

Kara Bermel of Superior Products said, “Great meeting experience with opportunities that were very advantageous. I will attend year after year.”

Nalpac vice president of operations Glenn LeBoeuf said, “This show and its format is instrumental for newer and up-and-coming manufacturers in the industry. It gives them the face time with buyers that they may not get at other shows to truly showcase their products.”

Jamie Casas of Castle Megastore said, “The XBIZ Retreat was first class like always. I met with vendors that I normally would never interact with in a great fun atmosphere. Without a doubt this is the best show currently taking place in the adult novelty industry, no show compares.”

Maia Toys director of sales Mara Epstein said, “This format provides me with the opportunity to get to know my potential buyers on a business level as well as a personal level.”

Entice Couples Boutique owner Charles Craton said, “I've attended XBIZ 360 and the XBIZ Retreat two years in a row. It's an excellent event to learn about new products, meet vendors and buyers in a one-on-one system, and the parties and group dinners were excellent networking opportunities. All in all, XBIZ Retreat is one of the best events in the industry. Ten out of 10 stars.”

“Thanks for including me. I learned a lot and came home excited about having new products in my boutique,” said Cheryl Sloane of G Boutique.

“A must-attend event for the adult product industry professionals,” Digital E-Life CEO Samir Saraiya said.

“I could not have been happier. A well organized event that enabled our company to connect with the people who matter,” said Glenn Copper of Piasaa USA.

Olivia Toribio of Katz Boutique said, “XBIZ Retreat was an overall amazing networking and educational experience. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has never attended.”

“What a fantastic event the XBIZ Retreat is,” said Bradley Taylor of Creative Conceptions. “It has provided us with a genuine opportunity to expand our customer base with a fantastic balance of formal meetings and informal mixers ­– a must for any manufacturer looking to expand.”

Williams Trading Co. President Bob Pyne Jr. said, “XBIZ Retreat is a great way to have one-on-one discussions with our manufacturers. This opportunity gives us a chance to plan our business and marketing strategies for the upcoming year. The event was a five-star production. Great job!"

Kyle Tutino of Honey's Place said, “This is my second time attending the XBIZ Retreat and it is becoming one of my favorite shows!”

“It was a pleasure attending the show and thank you for all your hard work,” said Kate of ABS Holdings.

Eddie Romero of Vibratex, said, “I greatly appreciate the hard work that went into planning and executing the XBIZ Retreat, it provided an exceptional platform for our company to meet with key individuals in our industry that in other platforms make it difficult to meet with. We were able to meet with individuals in the privacy of our suite and had the time to assess how Vibratex can be placed into their retail locations, discuss details of each product and introduce the new Magic Wand Rechargeable with no interruption or distractions. The additional networking during the social portions of the Retreat is invaluable.”
