29 Jul DON’T SLEEP ON THIS: FUTURE TRENDS AND INNOVATIONS IN BEDDING
How can bedding keynote speakers be in such high demand as of late? Like in many other industries, it’s because change and innovation is rapidly coming to the field – and at several orders of magnitude higher than most firms are used to. I mean, just in the last few years alone, we’ve already seen a huge explosion of bed in a box and home delivery options… one of many options of shifts happening in the sector. In any event, being bedding keynote speakers, let’s look at several different types of companies that participate in the bedding industry, noting that evolution is expected to come to all as we look to the weeks, months, and years to come…
- Mattress manufacturers – Design and manufacture mattresses under various brands, such as innerspring, foam, latex, air mattresses. For instance, Serta Simmons, Tempur Sealy, Sleep Number.
- Mattress retailers – Sell mattresses directly to consumers through retail stores and websites. Include national chains like Mattress Firm and regional players according to top bedding keynote speakers.

- Bedding wholesalers – Distribute and supply mattresses, foundations, and bedding accessories to retailers on a wholesale basis. May operate warehouses and delivery fleets.
- Private label manufacturers – As bedding keynote speakers note, make mattresses sold under a retailer’s own brand rather than a national brand. Help retailers offer exclusive models.
