XBIZ Retail Exhibitors Network, Connect With Attendees

LOS ANGELES — Taking up the entire 10th floor of the Sofitel hotel, dozens of retail exhibitors showcased some of their finest product lines and products while conducting business and making deals during the second day of the XBIZ Retail show.

Steele Malone, who displayed his line of hand-blown glass “dilettos" said business has been good.

"The prospects have been very enthusiastic about the collection. It's been good so far," he said.

The company's vice president Nick Hernandez said the show has been an overall success.

"We networked a lot," he said. "We'll be very busy after the show. A lot of people liked the collection."

Robyn Peniasian of Biatta Intimates said she made quite a bit of contacts, while the owner of Williams Trading Rich Pyne was busy pushing his new toy site.

"You control the site," he said. "You're the seller and the owner. You mark-up the prices and we just ship the products."

From Paradise Marketing, the Pleasure Zone, Hustler Video, Avelli Brands, New Beginnings, Euromedia Distribution and Penthouse, the luxurious exhibit suites provided both attendees and exhibitors endless networking opportunities.
