Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) July 23, 2009
Entering the marketplace with proof-positive research and overwhelming validation from parents and students approaching 90%, Dorm-In-A-Box made its commercial debut last month in Baltimore Maryland at the ACUHO-I 61st Annual Conference & Exposition.
In January the company floated the transformative concept at the American Council on Education (ACE) conference in Washington D.C. resulting in overwhelming validation of the concept by college Chancellors, Presidents, and Administrators. "We stole the show and the sensibilities of everyone! So did our latest consumer research survey, in which 88% of parents voted 'Yes, I WOULD WANT the University to purchase this on my behalf.'" stated Dorm-In-A-Box President Chris Vahlkamp.
For as little as $349 students receive over $1200 worth of residence hall essentials including nearly everything that every student will need for a successful college experience; from bed to bath to desk.
Citing the need reduce the cost of attending college the company is bringing consumer product "best practices" and design expertise to college campuses. The company designs comprehensive, high quality, bundled Residence Hall Essentials and ships them via shipping container directly to University partners on behalf of the freshmen class. These residence hall kits are then unloaded by Dorm-In-A-Box and placed in every freshman room while saving students 65% or more as a result of the efficient & transformative process. Dorm-In-A-Box is an entirely new concept so unique that the company has even filed an application for a United States Patent.
Conference attendees welcomed the persuasive value proposition of Dorm-In-A-Box. "Imagine the convenience and good-will this generates while also providing a compelling marketing tool to attract the very best student candidates." "With real savings of $843 per student, even low-income students will have equal access to residence hall basics, offering a much needed boost to those who would otherwise begin their college experience at a deficit." adds Vahlkamp.
Ultimately student consumers vote with their pocketbooks, even for education, and the folks at Dorm-In-A-Box have already established themselves as the leader in providing an expanded comprehensive tool to enhance the freshman residence hall experience. The company just set the bar higher in terms of expectations in an increasingly competitive college market focused on nurturing a successful & positive college experience.

Primarily a Private-Label product design company since 2002, Dorm-In-A-Box has expanded expertise to bring manufacturing efficiencies to the college community in a way never before realized.
