Yes, “Mother Natural” went a little wild at the Jones Nonwovens booth (right). Sometimes things get out of hand at ISPA EXPO. It’s thrilling to see so many innovations in mattress components and manufacturing equipment, all in one place. You get sensory overload. This is the bedding industry’s biggest equipment and components exhibition, after all.
While the May print edition of BedTimes will feature complete coverage of ISPA EXPO 2018 in Charlotte, March 14-16, below are a number of photo galleries featuring some of the fabrics, foams, springs and machinery introduced at the show. These are just highlights. We wish we had time to see and report everything.
But, first, check out these ISPA EXPO shopping scenes, as well as some memorable moments and interesting displays.
