This Market the Specialty Sleep Association has partnered with Relief Bed International and The Salvation Army to make our retailer attendance go an extra mile while visiting the SSA Sleep Pavilion C1565 at the Las Vegas Market.
Relief Bed will build and deliver one bed per buying group scanned in the SSA Sleep Pavilion with a cap at 500 beds. As a Sleep Retailer, when you walk into C1565 you’ll make a difference in the next emergency/disaster! So, as the tagline states, during the January Las Vegas Market, “when you’re here (C1565), you’re helping.”
Relief Bed has already answered the Salvation Army’s request and shipped 100 beds to them for fire victims on January 6th. We are already helping!! Relief Bed agreed to ship beds as needed to The Salvation Army, even if the emergency requiring beds happened before Market.
“The Salvation Army is an extraordinary organization and we are excited to support their efforts,” said Relief Bed International Founder Scott Smalling, “we hope the SSA’s traffic is strong so we can maximize the commitment to the Salvation Army,” Smalling continued. SSA Executive Director Tambra Jones agrees. “It is so exciting that our project has already sent beds for a fire disaster to the Salvation Army. We thank our Sleep Pavilion exhibitors for their support and donations to this project.”
SSA exhibitor donations are the backbone of this project:
