HIGHTSTOWN, N.J. — International Video Distributors and East Coast News have reported they are expecting success at this month's 2017 IVD/ECN Fall Show in Stowe, Vt.
This year's event runs from Oct. 22-25, with the main trade show taking place on Oct. 24 and 25.
For the third year in a row, over 60 of the industry's top manufacturers, along with over 200 retailers, buyers and storeowners, will gather in scenic Stowe, Vt. for three days of networking, manufacturer exhibits, great entertainment and exquisite dining, the company reported.
"Our fall show is a great opportunity for our vendor partners and customers to get together, see all of the new products and enjoy themselves at the same time," said Justin Vickers, retail coordinator for East Coast News. "We love working with the team at Stowe Mountain Lodge, which is why we are back for the third year in a row!"
Tiffany Lysene, CEO of Little Genie Productions, commented, "The IVD/ECN Vermont Show is one of my favorite events of the year. Vermont is so very brilliant in the fall and the accommodations are first class. The show space is great and every year there are fun surprises that Justin has cooked up. It's always fun to see all my friends in the industry and the evening's special events make it easy to get to know each other and meet new customers."
New for 2017 are personalized tablets for each customer to browse and order what manufacturers are showcasing. BMS Factory will have their "Pillow Talk" collection on hand, and Shots America will be showing their "Jil" collection.
Both are available exclusively through ECN. And manufacturers such as Fleshlight, Electrastim and Earthly Body are new to the show this year.
"I attended my first IVD/ECN Fall Show last year and my mind was blown," said Denise Young of Blush Novelties. "It was such an amazing show, the perfect combination of fun and hard work. It's a great opportunity to spend time to see people I love in the industry, strengthen my relationships, gain valuable feedback on how Blush is doing for them, and learn how we can better care for them. All these interactions are invaluable and the IVD/ECN Fall Show provides the perfect space for this."
