Save the Date: SWIMSHOW, the premier swimwear trade show in the beachwear industry produced by the Swimwear Association of Florida, will return to South Beach and the Miami Beach Convention Center for its 35th edition July 22 – 25, 2017.  The highly anticipated 4-day annual event will showcase a dynamic array of swimwear, beachwear, resort wear, and accessories collections from emerging young talent and world-renowned contemporary and designer brands. SWIMSHOW, the most respected, comprehensive, and longest running trade show of its kind brings together the most influential retailers from around the globe with the hottest collections of the season.

This year’s highlights include the return and expansion of the Collection, a curated fashion environment strategically placed in the middle of the show floor created for discovering the best emerging and established swimwear designer brands in the industry. The modern and polished platform is created to emphasize each individual brand’s identity with the focus on the product. Buyers will again have the opportunity to engage with brands in a one-on-one unique intimate environment that allows them to gather personal insights into the collections.  Retailers will once again experience this beautifully encased luxury oasis, while enjoying champagne butler service, a VIP lounge area, and free access to Wi-Fi available throughout the trade show.

Additional highlights will include amenities such as a dry and braid bar, massages, nail salon for quick touch-ups, henna bar, up-to-the-minute social media engagement, informative trend seminars, and new networking events.

Last year, the prestigious trade show housed over 350 exhibitor booths representing more than 2500 swimwear and ancillary brands expanding the event’s offerings to wider categories incorporating bags, hats, sandals, cover-ups, athleisure and more.  A few additional hot-spots were the resort and lifestyle brands that concentrated on the new fashion-focused, beach-to-bar collections. Over 60 countries were represented and there was a 13% uptick in attendance from the previous year.

This year, SWIMSHOW will continue to grow those categories along with featuring a variety of iconic women, men’s and children’s swimwear companies. Attendees will include manufacturers, designers, corporate personnel, press, bloggers, fashion consultants, stylists and other fashion industry leaders, as well as buyers from all swimwear categories, and caters to designer boutiques, resort shops, specialty stores, surf shops, department stores, mass merchants and more.

“At SWIMSHOW, buyers get the best of both worlds, having the opportunity to view the most exciting collections from emerging designers, as well as the most important established brands,” said SWIMSHOW Director Judy Stein. “Our show has become part of the fabric of the swimwear industry, consistently attracting premier brands and buyers.”

Known as the event that starts the swimwear season in the US, this essential show provides buyers a warm and business friendly environment, an easy to navigate and enjoyable shopping experience, and plenty of opportunities to network and meet with key suppliers. As per the last several years, SWIMSHOW is expecting to sell-out this summer.

Due to the renovation of the Miami Beach Convention Center, SWIMSHOW is incorporating only two exhibitions halls again this year.  As per last year, the condensed space required the organization to adapt a more stringent selection process guaranteeing a more cohesive and discerning group of exhibitors. Show organizers are encouraging returning exhibitors to confirm their participation and suggesting new brands interested in participating should submit their applications as early as possible.

In addition to the 4-day exhibit in the Miami Beach Convention Center, special events surrounding SWIMSHOW will include seminars on the latest swimwear and lifestyle trends, Swim Lounge Happy Hour, informal modeling, a daily breakfast bar and High Tea service every afternoon allowing for networking and a slew of very special surprises!

Dan and Shay Martin of Vibratex to be Recognized at XBIZ Awards

Thank you so much!  “We are delighted and humbled”

Dan and Shay Martin will be recognized this evening, January 12, at the 2017 XBIZ Awards with the Pioneer Award.

One of the industry’s most prestigious honors, the Pioneer Award recognizes company figures who have had a profound impact on the industry through vision, innovation and courage, and continue to provide a guiding light for those who came after them.

d81477b1-19b6-4b37-99dd-63aef24a3f3a
Dan and Shay would like for all Vibratex customers and all their friends in the industry to know how grateful and humbled they are.

“We are so touched by this generous recognition, and we want to thank our friends and customers in the industry from the bottom of our hearts,” says Shay Martin, who started helping out in the family business during her high school years, and has served as Vice President since 1999.

To this day, Vibratex continues to be a second-generation, family-owned company, based in Napa, Calif. The company prides itself on its unique, thoughtfully crafted pleasure pieces and on its long-standing dedication to product quality and consumer satisfaction.
Vibratex rose to fame over 30 years ago by introducing America to the blended-orgasm vibrator (today, the Rabbit Habit Original Deluxe).

Later, the company was instrumental in saving the iconic Magic Wand massager not once but twice. First, when Hitachi had stopped sales to the US market, and then a second time when the Japanese company decided to remove its name from the Magic Wand.

More recently, Vibratex brought the cordless Magic Wand Rechargeable to consumers, together with Hitachi. Vibratex remains the sole importer to North America of the Magic Wand.

In addition to their work with Vibratex and Magic Wand branded products, Dan and Shay have supported people coming into industry, and have helped new brands get off the ground, like We-Vibe and Jimmyjane.

“We’ve seen such wonderful change in our industry over the years,” reflects Shay Martin.

“The empowerment of women, greater openness about sexuality, acceptance of others and so many amazing products brought about by innovation and thinking outside the box. But one thing that has not changed is the fact that we all support each other in this business and are like a big family. For that we are continually grateful,” she concludes.

The 2017 Pioneer Award recipients will be honored on January 12 during an on-screen segment at the adult industry’s biggest night, the 2017 XBIZ Awards show at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles. Other Pioneer Award recipients this year are Ron Cadwell of CCBill, Kelly Holland of Penthouse and Larry Garland of Eldorado.
