Summer Las Vegas Market Videos From Mattress Showrooms

Shooting Las Vegas Market videos from mattress industry showrooms made me very tired
Fit for humans I rest-test one of the new Serta iComfort pet beds.

It was a lazy Las Vegas Market this week–with light traffic in bedding halls and fewer product launches among bedding exhibitors than at past summer shows. I saw a handful of new mattress collections, some product redesigns and new technologies, as well as quite a few pillows.

But, quiet shows make it a lot easier for reporters–and industry suppliers–to chat up exhibitors. And that is what I/we did this week.

What’s more, I had tremendous fun with Twitter video tweets, convincing many bedding vendors to star in 30-second video tweets from the show floor. They were tweeted by @SleepSavvyMag and retweeted by @BedTimesMag. Please follow both publications on Twitter, if you aren’t already, and we’ll follow you back.

In the videos, some mattress and sleep accessories exhibitors discuss a new product or technology, others share their thoughts on the #bestthing to have happened at their companies so far this year. (Those tweets use hashtag #bestthing.)

Their video tweets, all 21 of them, are embedded below.

If you’re on Twitter, all of the video tweets were tagged with #lvmktmattress. But, the best way to see them at Twitter is by scrolling through Sleep Savvy‘s recent tweet stream. When you do, please retweet your favorites!

Here are our Las Vegas Market video tweets, in no particular order. Enjoy!
