According to the companies, more than 60 of the industry’s top manufacturers, along with 200 retailers, buyers and store owners, gathered for the annual fall show in Stowe, Vt., where for three days, attendees were able to get one-on-one time with manufacturers, IVD and ECN sales and support staff and other retailers and buyers in the industry.
“This year’s IVD/ECN show was a phenomenal success,” said Lynda Mort, IVD/ECN vice president of sales and marketing. “The purpose of our show is to bring together our customers, vendors, and staff to give them an opportunity to interact on a more intimate basis.”
Mort said the show allowed customers the chance to learn about products, review new releases and spend one-on-one time with each other.
“It also gives our customers the opportunity to mingle with other successful business owners and share best practices,” Mort said. “I would say this was one of the most intimate and successful shows yet.”
The CalExotics booth was one of the highlights of the show, showcasing its top collections including Kroma, Scandal, Mini Marvels and more.
Representing Wicked, Jessica Drake also was on hand to take photos with customers and sign DVDs.
“We had our best show to date and received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback on our latest releases,” said Austin Ferdinand of CalExotics.
“Thanks, ECN, wow, what a show, I did not think they could top the last two years, but they did,” said James Roark-Gruender of Passions Adult Boutique. “Every year after the show, I see my sales increase and form new lasting relationships with vendors and reps.”
