Catstudio Trade Show

catstudio just wrapped up a whirlwind month that included three back to back to back trade shows. We started out the month with a fun show in Atlanta at our showroom at The Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market, then we happily moved onto the Dallas Temp Total Home & Gift Market, and we finished up the month strong at The Las Vegas Market.

We went into show season with all sorts of new product, including our ever-growing collegiate collection, and some fantastic new glass and dish towel designs. All three of our shows featured our fabulous catstudio Studio which includes the gorgeous new pillow display and our timeless glass and dish towel displays.

Atlanta Market

Our Atlanta showroom was sporting a brand new custom made set of bleachers that were specially designed to display the collegiate collection in all it’s glory – and boy did it ever.

We had so much fun seeing all of our current customers and meeting potential new customers! This is definitely the most greatest of this job – we love seeing all of our catstudio friends and family!

Dallas Market

Everything is bigger in Texas and we made sure to bring BIG designs to our next show. Dallas Market attendees were treated to all of the great new products, including our new XL LSU pillow and one of our upcoming designs – Texas A&M.

Our sales ambassadors met a lot of great new customers and chatted about our newest collegiate designs! With all of this amazing color and vibrant designs, our market booth was anything but boring, that’s for sure.

Las Vegas Market

We traveled to the wild west Las Vegas for our final show. And we had a blast. During the show, we roped in current and future customers with our fun western theme and beautiful designs. Our hard working catstudio super stars took a night off to enjoy a delicious dinner at the fabulous Giada restaurant.

Catstudio Vegas Market

We were so excited to see our designs on a big sign outside of the market. Don’t our pillows look great on the side of a building? We think so.

Show season has passed for now, but we are just resting up for our big CAMEX show in March! Stay tuned for lots of new designs coming soon!
