Picture this… all of your favorite baby and mom brands showcasing their hottest new products, the chance to meet to your favorite bloggers and writers, and let’s not forget great food and champagne (well, mocktails for the pregnant attendees of course)… Sounds pretty fun, don’t you agree? Add in long hours of meetings, networking, and writing orders and this only means one thing: the ABC Kids Expo.
Each October, we head to this annual trade show- the industry’s biggest event of the year. This year, ABC was held in Las Vegas October 15th-18th. For four fun-filled, action packed days, we showcased the NEW 2014 JP Lizzy product line, met with new and current retail buyers, and soaked up anything and everything in the Mom/Baby industry.
We’ve decided to give you a behind the scenes look into this year’s event. So sit back and read up…here is our highlight reel for the 2013 ABC Kids Expo.
Show Highlights/Brand Love:
The Bella Bundles line stole our attention from day one. They are the makers of luxury baby products that are modern, stylish and multi-functional (ahh, we just LOVE introducing you to like-minded brands 😉 ). From sleep sacks, bibs, stroller/nursing blankets and more, we couldn’t get enough of this colorful, cozy product line. Their products come in every pattern from chevron, polka dots, and plenty more you’ll adore. Their blankets are an everyday must-have for any family on the move and were an absolute favorite of ours!
Here are some snapshots of their booth and products….
We also caught a glimpse of Padalily and Jaq Jaq Bird’s shared booth, pictured below. Both of these brands make sensible, stylish products for busy moms and their kids. It was a treat to meet their fabulous staff in person. And in case you haven’t heard, we’ve teamed up with both of these brands for our Fall Sweepstakes. You can enter to WIN amazing prizes here– good luck!
JP Lizzy Booth Highlights:
And last but certainly not least, this year’s ABC show was an exciting one for JP Lizzy, as our NEW Allure Collection made its debut! These new bags won’t be available to purchase until 2014, but we were very excited to show our new bags to the ABC community and store buyers.
We also want to say thank you to our long time sales employee, Laura Mossiat for traveling all the way from Maryland and taking time from her family to work our booth – she did an amazing job!
Overall, ABC was a fantastic show and we are more excited than ever for 2014. We are also very happy to be back home in sunny Colorado, see our families, and kick back into our normal schedules this week. Maybe a little R&R is in order too… or at least we hope so!
