HIGHTSTOWN, N.J. — East Coast News says it is optimistic about the company’s future, and the industry as a whole, as the company prepares for next week’s 2016 IVD|ECN Fall Show in Stowe, Vt.
For the second year in a row, more than 60 manufacturers, along with more than 200 retailers and store owners, will gather in scenic Stowe for three days of networking, vendor presentations and exhibits, entertainment and fine dining.
“Our fall show is a great opportunity for vendors and customers alike to get together, see all of the new products, and have a little bit of fun,” said Justin Vickers, retail coordinator for East Coast News. “And the backdrop of Stowe is the perfect setting for the show.”
Kerin De Francis, director of sales for Doc Johnson, said, “The IVD|ECN show is beneficial for Doc Johnson for multiple reasons. It puts us in front of top buyers and also ECN itself. It's great for us to get feedback from both the sales team and the customers. We get to reconnect with old friends and make new ones. I completely enjoy and always look forward to the event.”
At this year’s show, many manufacturers will be showcasing new product lines, along with exclusive deals only offered by East Coast News. Jimmyjane will have its new Rumble Seat on hand, and Kama Sutra will also display the new RHYTHM line of personal massagers. Both are available exclusively through ECN. Also, manufacturers such as Aneros, Fun Toys and System Jo will have exclusive “show-only” deals.
“We are so excited for the upcoming IVD|ECN Show in Vermont,” said Lynda Mort, director of strategic planning for XR Brands. “This show provides us with a great opportunity to work with ECN’s top customers and spend time finding out what they need from us as manufacturers. This feedback is vital to our success! We have worked very closely with ECN these past few months to plan a unique experience for the customers and will present some amazing new opportunities and ideas at the show.”
East Coast News, one of the largest distributors of adult toys, novelties and accessories, offers more than 30,000 products from more than 150 manufacturers. The company ships from warehouses located in New Jersey, Florida, and California.
