a look inside the posh little urbanites show
LUSH is a baby and toddler trade show dedicated to all the posh and eco-conscious retailers and parents who are always setting the next big trend. Unlike other juvenile shows in the industry, PLUSH sets itself apart by being one step ahead, and selecting vendors that are ALL worth your time. With endless research on what todayâ€™s modern parents are looking for, PLUSH constantly finds the best, most innovative, eco-friendly, and luxurious products on the market, and places them all in one location for retailers, consumers, and media. PLUSH thinks outside the box, and creates unique shows year after year, as no two shows are ever alike! With exciting surprise elements to enhance the overall event experience, PLUSH is about putting together the ideal business opportunity for the juvenile industry manufacturers, buyers, and media.
If chi-chi baby and toddler gear makes your heart beat a little faster, the PLUSH trade show will have you praising the luxury gods.
CONSUMER + B2B ALL IN ONE DAY PLUSH is the only show that brings together the BEST OF ALL ASPECTS of the juvenile industry in one day to create the biggest and most dynamic business & focus group opportunity. PLUSH has now expanded to B2B, and with the same attention to detail and execution as the consumer show, PLUSH is now bringing together the best in every area of the juvenile industry in an expanded B2B and B2C all in one day format. PLUSH utilizes the factors of the ripple effect and introduces retailers to the phenomenon, so that all members of the juvenile industry can be a part of the most dynamic sales, marketing, media, and
research focus group. PLUSH provides an opportunity where all aspects of the industry may learn from one another. Although the format has expanded, the mission remains the same: to create an invitation-only feel and provide an atmosphere where everyone feels focused and directed towards the best and most innovative products, services, knowledge, and marketing the baby and toddler industry has to offer.
