With more than 30 different mattress, bedding and home furnishings manufacturers and retailers exhibiting within its showroom at the summer Las Vegas Market, the Specialty Sleep Association is once again a magnet for retail store and e-commerce buyers. This summer, a number of new companies will join returning exhibitors—many of whom have taken larger spaces to offer more product displays and demonstrations to buyers.
“There is always something new, something different to draw in the buyers,” said Tambra Jones, SSA Executive Director. “This market presents an extensive cross section of all types of innovations and technologies from various mattresses, support systems, heating and cooling technologies as well as furniture, top-of-bed and foundation or under-the-bed accessories. There is always something new, unique, cutting-edge and different in our showroom.”
The following manufacturers will be exhibiting in the SSA Showroom:
Allassea Sleep Systems will be introducing the company’s new Triple Threat Mattress shield, a mattress encasement that kills bed bugs, dust mites, mosquitoes, within 24 hours of contact. This patent-pending, hypo-allergenic, nano-net technology is unlike other shields on the market because it kills pests while it is safe for people and pets.
Bio Sleep Concept Inc. focuses on natural and organic latex mattresses, futons and latex toppers, as well as feather and down, organic cotton and wool pillows. At market, the company will feature its exclusively licensed “Downia” feather and down products. Downia is a century old company that focuses on best quality products that are certified by the New Zealand asthma foundation.
Contour Products Inc. is celebrating its 25th year of being an innovative leader in the specialty sleep industry by exhibiting in the SSA showroom for the first time, where it will showcase its top-of-bed cervical, orthopedic, side/back sleep, cooling, leg pillow and bed wedges. The company manufactures a variety of pillows, wedges, seat solutions and CPAP accessories that help to comfort, support and properly align the body for overall comfort and improved well-being. An emphasis on posture, ergonomics and support is what separates Contour Products from the competition—along with its committed belief that being comfortable is not just an indulgence, rather it is a necessity to obtaining quality sleep and for maintaining good health.

In addition to spotlighting a number of exciting exhibitors at market, the SSA is also rolling out its new revised mission and highlighting its new BEDFAX program.
“It has taken us two years, but we now have a revised and updated duo-mission focused on consumers and our members,” explained Dale T. Read, President of the SSA. “We also have the formal launch of the BEDFAX Verified program under way and now we have a whole new modern, clean look and feel with new signage, graphics and logo for the SSA.”
The SSA is now approaching manufacturers and retailers to explain how the BEDFAX consumer disclosure contents label helps educate the discerning consumer about “What’s In This Mattress?” A voluntary, third-party, industry contents labeling program, BEDFAX informs consumers of exactly what is inside a participating mattress model by weight or volume including what is in the cover, the quilt or comfort layer and the core of the participating mattress.
