LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY--(Marketwire - Oct. 16, 2012) - ABC KIDS EXPO - ReliaBrand® Inc. (OTCBB:RLIA) officially introduced its new Adiri® NxGen® brand of baby bottles and infant feeding accessories at the ABC KIDS EXPO in Louisville, Kentucky this week. The ABC Kids Expo is the premier juvenile products show in the world, with more than 1000 exhibitors in one million square feet of exhibit space attracting global Retail Store Buyers. While the first day of the ABC Show was highlighted by one-on-one meetings with hundreds of independent baby boutique retailers, the Company began to meet face to face with the larger Mass Merchants the 2nd day of the Show Monday October, 14.
"The meetings with the larger mass merchants exceeded both my personal expectations and the Company's targeted objectives," ReliaBrand® CEO Antal Markus stated. "Our new product line was very well received. Follow up meetings to map out specific Adiri® product offerings and distribution objectives with our top potential major retail partners is already scheduled. I believe that I will be in a position to begin to announce our new launch partners in the very near future. I am very proud of my team. We came here with high expectations and very specific launch objectives and will be leaving here having exceeded every single one of them," Markus concluded.
This introduction to major retail buyers was the first for the Company since acquiring the Adiri® Brand that historically sold at retailers such as 'TOYS"R"US®', 'Whole Foods®' and over 500 independent baby boutiques prior to the acquisition of the brand by ReliaBrand™. Over the past 18-months ReliaBrand™ has developed numerous new Adiri® branded product line extensions including sippy cups, pacifiers, teething rings, transitional bottles and a variety of other infant feeding related staples and accessories. The feature product being introduced to retailers at the ABC KIDS EXPO will be its new line of Adiri® NxGen® baby bottles.
The Adiri® NxGen® baby bottles offer new features such as a recently patented sanitary cap, replaceable feeding nipples and a transitional sippy spout that transforms the bottle from a nurser into baby's first "sippy" bottle. It is available in new pastel colors and new sizes such as the 5.5 ounce 'Newborn' and 9.5 ounce 'Infant' size. The media is also taking note as many of the members of the editorial and publishing world who are in attendance at the show have made it a point to stop by and visit the booth to see the line and speak with the principals of the company about the new products and what lies ahead for the brand.
