The BedTimes editorial team is heading out for a jam-packed week of checking out new mattresses, pillows, adjustable bed bases and other sleep products during the Las Vegas Market, which kicks off Monday, July 30.

It’s become conventional wisdom that the winter Vegas show is the one in which major bedding news is made, but given the advance information we’ve gotten from vendors, there will be plenty of innovations at the summer market to spark the interest of retailers.

Look for BedTimes’ full coverage of the market, including a video wrap-up, online and in the September issue of the magazine.

And, if you’re attending market, don’t forget to attend a panel discussion on mattress recycling sponsored by the International Sleep Products Association.

It starts at 3 p.m., Tuesday, July 31, in the World Forum on the 16th floor of Building B in the World Market Center. All mattress manufacturers, retailers and industry suppliers are invited to attend the session, “Mattress Retailers and Manufacturers Beware: Are You Prepared for 50 Different State Used Mattress Recycling Laws?” For more information, check www.sleepproducts.org.
