JPMA to connect industry brands with key stakeholders during exclusive private meetings at the 2019 JPMA show, April 10-13, 2019 in Orlando, FL


MOUNT LAUREL, NJ (Oct. 3, 2018) — The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA), announced today it will offer industry attendees the opportunity to participate in private 1:1 meetings with key stakeholders to advance their business during The JPMA Show in 2019.


Through a partnership with a2z's VIBE(TM), JPMA will cover the cost of travel and attendance for key, qualified specialty retailers, international buyers and top-tier media and influencers, giving both exhibitors and trade attendees a guaranteed chance to meet with a select group of buyers and media in addition to normal exhibiting hours at the show. 


“VIBE is the perfect example of how The JPMA Show is a curated experience, bringing together the right people to make business happen. Because the list of participants will be pre-qualified, and meetings will be organized based on each party's interests, we think this unique program will provide tremendous value to everyone involved,” said Kelly Mariotti, JPMA executive director.


Meetings will occur during a pre-scheduled window on Wednesday afternoon, April 10, 2019, before the show floor opens on Thursday, April 11, 2019. Trade attendees can select meeting packages that include a specified number of meetings within the segment or segments they choose - up to 30 individualized meeting slots. Although exhibitors will receive special, discounted pricing for the VIBE program, it is not necessary for a brand to exhibit at the show to participate.


“Our show was built on the premise that the industry is changing and the needs of all attendees must be considered. The ability to connect with certain buyers and media one-on-one, whether or not they invest in booth space, is a great value proposition for some companies. On the other side, the ability to receive free travel may be the deciding factor in attracting some very desirable buyers and media to attend and participate in the show, and we want to make the decision easy for anyone wanting to be there,” said Mariotti.


To sign up as an exhibitor, or for more information about VIBE, contact Sabina Gargiulo at


If you are a buyer interested in attending The JPMA Show and would like to participate in VIBE, or for more information, contact Bill McGlade at or (443) 393-2446.
