International Home and Housewares Show 2017 Report

This week saw the return of the International Home and Housewares Show to McCormick Place in Chicago. As usual Ben was walking the floor to represent DSA Factors. During the show he visited with clients and met with prospective new clients. Overall, based on the crowds in attendance and reports from our clients at the show, the show was a success. While we had some clients who reported not too much activity, others reported tons of activity and have picked up quite a few large accounts at the show. We also met with a large number of startup businesses who are expecting a lot of business as a result of the show. DSA Factors has been providing factoring for the housewares industry for over 30 years now, and it's always good to see that the industry is performing well.

If you were at the show and met with Ben, we hope that you learned a little bit more about accounts receivable factoring and how it allows you to finance your business without taking on any new debt. If you didn't get a chance to meet with Ben, we are sorry he missed you, but we would still be happy to talk to you about how we can improve your company's cash flow.

Now that the show has come to an end, if you have received some large orders, or plan on receiving them in the coming weeks, now would be a great time to get your financing in place. With DSA Factors, not only can you get an advance on your invoices with accounts receivable factoring, but we also offer purchase order financing as well. Call us now so that we can make sure that when those large PO's come in, that you have the financing you need to take them on.

We hope that the International Home and Housewares Show was a huge success for your company, and look forward to seeing you back in Chicago this time next year. Until then, if you have any questions, or would like to learn more about your financing options, fell free to give Ben a call at 773-248-9000 or e-mail him at ben@dsafactors.com.

Another Successful Casual Market Chicago

Last week's Casual Market at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago was a successful one. While many of the exhibitors noted that there was lighter foot traffic than there had been in previous years, they mentioned that more of the attendees to the Casual Market knew what they were looking for going into the show and were placing orders. Here at DSA Factors we can already confirm this as several of our clients have already submitted numerous orders for approval this week, most of which are coming from brand new accounts. In fact one of our clients has already received over $100,000 in orders from brand new accounts and it has only been a week since the market came to a close!

The show featured quite a few new exhibitors, many exhibitors who were new to the show last year and were returning for their second show, as well as all of the usual exhibitors who have been making the annual trip to the Mart for a long time now. Once again DSA Factors was present at the show and if you were exhibiting there is a very good chance that you would have spoken with Ben. However, if you somehow missed Ben at the show, or you didn't attend this year, don't worry, he is always available and can be reached by phone at 773-248-9000 or via e-mail at ben@dsafactors.com.

For those of you unfamiliar with the Casual Market Chicago, it is the premier trade show for the casual furniture industry and is put on each September at the Merchandise Mart by ICFA (International Casual Furnishings Association). It features a large number of temporary exhibitors on the very busy seventh floor, as well as several floors of permanent showrooms. Exhibitors at the show sell everything including outdoor dining sets, chat groups, fire tables and fire pits, outdoor fabrics, cushions, umbrellas, hammocks, bean bag chairs, grills, outdoor rugs, lighting, wall decor, and everything else you would need to complete an outdoor room.

DSA Factors has been involved in the furniture industry for over 60 years and has been providing accounts receivable factoring for furniture manufacturers and importers for the last 30 years. Our clients sell everything from indoor to outdoor furniture, cushions, rugs, umbrellas, lighting, decorative accessories, and much more. In addition to accounts receivable factoring, DSA Factors also offers our clients purchase order financing so that they have the funds necessary to fulfill large orders. If you are in need of improved cash flow, or just want someone to take care of and insure your accounts receivable, choose DSA Factors, we have the experience you need to grow your business.
