According to the American Academy of Dermatology, millions of people suffer from sensitive skin issues. Kids are especially vulnerable to their environment. Unfortunately, products or medicines designed to treat a health issue can become a problem on their own. While no one can dispute the wonders of modern medicine, families are always on the lookout for products that are natural and have been proven to be safe. Companies like Canus are delivering quality products that every member of the family can feel good about using.
I am looking forward to attending the ABC Spring Educational Conference at South Point, Las Vegas on May 7-9. After attending so many trade events over the last 30+ years, I enjoy learning more about the children’s business, and especially seeing new things that may take me by surprise. The ABC SEC is one event that allows buyers, manufacturers, reps and media to get to know more about each other. The element of surprise is always part of new experiences. That’s why I asked several exhibitors these questions: “What would someone be surprised to know about you?” and “What will buyers be surprised to see in your 2013 line?”
