Bedding Conference features retail-focused agenda

This retail-oriented program is designed to give all types of mattress retailers information they can use to improve their operations and boost their business.

Industry keynote speaker Lissa Coffey, the spokeswoman of the Better Sleep Council, offers business-building tips for retailers, outlining three things retailers should always do, and warning them about three things they should never do.

Online retailers Tuft & Needle and US-Mattress will talk about how they sell mattresses in the virtual world, while Rachel Tronstein of Gardner-White Furniture and Elana Stone of BedMart will be featured on a panel in which up-and-coming retailers will share their unique perspectives on the mattress business.

Internet bedding guru Michael Magnuson of GoodBed.com offers insights into ways that mattress retailers can better connect with their consumers, while Jeff Giagnocavo and Ben McClure of Gardner's Mattress & More share some of the secrets of their success.

Also, design guru Martin Roberts will talk about some of his recent work in the mattress retail display arena, giving retailers fresh thinking on store layout and design.
