The biggest draw at the Pool tradeshow appeared to be the Cash and Carry section, where buyers purchased product on the spot, with no minimum orders, for immediate sale.
Cash and Carry, which launched in January 2009, has more than doubled the number of its vendors to more than 40 since its debut. It gives retailers an opportunity to sample manageable quantities of new labels and was a destination for buyers at the Las Vegas Convention Center, who are keeping inventory and buying budgets under strict control.
