Jason Mills And The IFAI Expo

Last month the annual Industrial Fabrics Expo was held in Anaheim, California. Over 400 exhibitors, including Jason Mills, LLC were present, as were many thousands of attendees. Most of the attendees were serious about seeking out information and suppliers for the current year. Over the last 5 – 7 years we have seen the quality of the buyer improve and engagement usually kept at a serious level. Truth be told, we still had those running from booth to booth looking for your best price.

Those that stopped by our booth saw not only our 50+ standard knit industrial textiles, including our 20-30 stock items, but also development fabrics such as our style 413 for the outdoor trade (UV, water and fire resistant), style 501 for the indoor golf and simulator trade (finely knit for ultra HD imagery and fire resistant), as well as our two layer style 280 exclusively for healthcare industry (fire resistant, ultra load bearing and incredible liquid management).

It is true that exhibiting at trade shows is a costly endeavor, but the takeaway is that there is not any other venue in which you can come face to face with 80-100 potential new customers in a three day period. Along with print advertising, social media and a dynamic website, the trade show is a pillar of any growing company’s marketing plan.

This year’s venue, being on the west coast allowed regional visitors who might not normally make the trip to the familiar textile stomping grounds in the east; we’ll save that for Charlotte in 2016.

In the meantime, please visit our website at www.jasonmills.com or send us an email to info@jasonmills.com. Remember, all of Jason Mills’ products are knit, dyed and finished in the U.S.A.

Jason Mills Recaps The Outdoor Retailer

 

The Outdoor Retailer Summer Market show, held annually at Salt Lake City’s Salt Palace Convention Center reported over 50,000 attendees. The sales/marketing/development team from Jason Mills, LLC was among the many visitors this past August who walked the indoor exhibits as well as the associated pavilions and outdoor displays.

Drawing on research gleaned from 2014’s show, we took our newly developed sku # 413 with us to present to as many exhibitors as possible.  We found the reactions to this unique product very positive. Possessing a slightly tighter aperture than standard no-see-um (thus not only preventing ticks, but the nymphs from entering a tent’s sleeping area), this material is also UV, water and fire resistant.  A major advantage of our style 413 is its ability to remain water resistant while still allowing vapor to transfer, thus making it breathable, but capable of keeping the rain out.  

We want to take the time to recognize all of the exhibitors we met and that allowed us to spend time with them.  We understand that the venue is created to sell and that your time is precious. We look forward to working with you in the future and hopefully seeing our product as a value-add on your merchandise.

If you didn’t get a chance to see the debut of our style 413 and are interested in learning more, please call our office. Brenda, Bob or Mike would be happy to discuss the value this product brings to the outdoor market. For information on the total product line please visit our website.

Jason Mills Announces 2015 IFAI Expo Attendance

All the biggest names in the specialty fabrics and advanced textiles industry know that attending the annual IFAI Expo is a must. As you might expect, there is a great deal of excitement and anticipation for IFAI 2015 here at Jason Mills. This year’s edition of the influential tradeshow will take place at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA and run from October 6-8. The organizers of IFAI Expo 2015 are predicting a highlight filled-show that will include more than 400 exhibitors, a keynote speech from the inspirational blind adventurer, Erik Weihenmayer, exclusive floor features, educational events, IFF golf tournament, and more.

If you plan on attending the 2015 IFAI Expo, please set aside time to drop by and speak with the team from Jason Mills at booth #458. We are thrilled to be showcasing two of our newest styles. We’ll have Jason Mills style 413, our newest screening product for outdoor screening and tent applications. This mesh has been designed to have an aperture that is small enough to be considered no-see-um, which helps to prevent even tick nymphs from getting through while still allowing for air flow.

We will also have our Jason Mills style 501 on display. This fabric is made for golf simulator screens and was designed to show clear, crisp images on the screen with minimal bounce and low noise.

We encourage all of the expo attendees to stop by our booth to learn more about these fabrics firsthand. We can also provide customers who wish to attend the IFAI Expo with passes, so please contact us directly. Additionally, we post more company news on our Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+.

Find Jason Mills at booth #1816 to see our Jason Mills 413, our newest screening product for the outdoor retailing industry. This mesh has been specially designed to have an aperture that is small enough to be considered a no-see-um mesh, which can prevent mosquitos and ticks from penetrating but is also so small it can keep out tick nymphs while still allowing for air ventilation. This mesh also has additional value added qualities such as being fire, UV, and water resistant. This product can be used in applications such as tent windows, sleeping bags, light diffusion, and more. There is truly no other screening product like it on the market.

Meet Jason Mills at the IFAI Canada Expo

Jason Mills will be exhibiting at the IFAI Canada Expo on March 12-13, 2015. Attendees of the expo will get to meet with manufacturers and businesses from around the world as well as attend educational workshops and see product demonstrations.

Jason Mills will be introducing our new insect netting that is ideal for use in anything related to the outdoors, including tents and sleeping bags. Traditionally outdoor netting for tents and associated camping applications has been available in two qualities; mosquito nets and no-see-um.  Jason Mills has developed a new netting with an aperture that is small enough to allow air through but prevents insects as small as tick nymphs from getting through.  Additionally, the netting is UV, fire and water resistant. We encourage attendees to stop by our booth #020 and view this new product first-hand.
