The SSA Hosts 34 Exhibitors and Dozens of New Product Introductions

Sleep Research Technologies' AURIA Climate Controlled Sleep System

The Specialty Sleep Association (SSA) showroom will be booming during the winter Las Vegas Market. With 34 manufacturing exhibitors, six of which are brand new to the space, the showroom will feature a wide spectrum of new sleep products for retail buyers.

“The changes we’ve made in the showroom have allowed for more companies to display products and services and will add to the depth and diversity of offerings to mattress and bedding retailers,” said Tambra Jones, executive director of the SSA.

At the last winter market, the SSA had over 500 individual retail buying groups visit the showroom. “We have noticed an increase in online e-tailers and big box stores coming through our showroom along with the traditional sleep shops, furniture stores and department stores,” Jones continued. “We see an increasing diversity in both buyers and manufacturing exhibitors.”

Returning SSA Showroom exhibitors cover the full gamut of mattress, bedding and sleep related products as well as motion and ergonomic furniture, bed support and foundations, futon covers, top-of-bed accessories, natural and organic sleep products, smart-beds and app-driven comfort systems, heating and cooling applications and retail store support systems from software to display solutions.
