PMA 2010 Report
Building upon the massive success of its initial product launch, Powermat - the worldwide leader in wireless charging - will unveil a wide range of new and innovative charging solutions at CES 2010, further establishing its dominance in the category. Although a late entry into the wireless charging category, Powermat quickly surpassed all existing competitors by not only being first to gain national distribution with leading retailers in the market, but more importantly by experiencing considerable success and sell-through at store level. Since its launch, Powermat has sold in excess of 750,000 Powermat products, with most stores experiencing severe out-of-stock shortages late in the season.
The PMA show, or Photo Marketing Association, continues its yearly tradition of maintaining a network of photo imaging as well as the experience and know-how of the industry. The PMA represents 20,000 members from over 100 countries, who are all active within the imaging industry. As a reflection of the changes in the market, the PMA organization has also changed and has become more diverse. Nowadays, the member group consists of representatives coming from photo retail, manufacturers, commercial photo labs, professional sports and news photography, in addition to small album print suppliers and photo processing centers. The PMA 2012 Trade show focuses on an industry which is heavily affected by the unstable situation of the global financial economy. However, whether the latter will also stand in the way of the innovation and product introductions, remains to be revealed by the PMA International Convention & Trade Show in Anaheim Convention Center (California, US).
