Balluun, the global leader in social commerce technology, announced March 4 a strategic partnership with the American Made Show to create a digital marketplace for the gift tradeshow industry, which encompasses studio artists and designers that produce handcrafted works for luxury boutiques, galleries and museum stores. The website will launch in June 2015 before summer show in Dallas, Texas, from June 25-28.
The American Made Show is the largest wholesale trade marketplace that brings together top artisans and retailers who trade in authentic, American-made merchandise, including artisan made jewelry, home décor, fashion, furniture and gifts. Together, Balluun and the American Made Show will bring advanced digital capabilities including social networking and ecommerce to AmericanMadeShow.com.
The patented digital marketplace technology from Balluun 365 will make the American Made Show a true digital service provider.
“Balluun continues to be a technology leader in B2B e-commerce, and this is due to our partnerships with best-in-class tradeshow operators like the American Made Show,” explained Peter Koch, chief product officer and founder, Balluun. “Balluun 365 is a platform for them to enhance and extend their first class experience to 24/7/365.”
“We are thrilled to partner with Balluun as the exclusive provider of authentic American Made resources for Balluun’s digital marketplace’s nearly 20,000 member retailers. It is also an honor for us to join with other major national events like Pool, Toy Fair, ENK, Magic and Coterie, which represent thousands of stores that may have never before explored authentic American Made jewelry,” said Wendy Rosen, Founder of The American Made Show. “This new partnership will extend the reach of these top designers and makers to tens of thousands of new stores, boutiques and galleries, and provide them with an unprecedented opportunity for growth.”
