We progressed through the Kickstarter campaign brilliantly, and the resources are now in place for us to provide global production volume for FaceCradle.

Company officials for FaceCradle, the most-funded travel pillow in crowdfunding history, are back for a bigger and better encore appearance at the International Travel Goods Show, a three-day event from April 5-7 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Travelers, retailers and anyone who craves deep sleep on a plane are invited to visit booth 544 in the North Hall to experience FaceCradle in a real airplane seat set up at the booth -- where they can discover why this travel pillow has taken off in popularity.

The appearance at the show follows the company’s tremendous success among travelers for FaceCradle, which raised $1.135 million ($1,479,231 AUD) from nearly 20,000 people on the crowdfunding website Kickstarter last fall.

“We progressed through the Kickstarter campaign brilliantly, and the resources are now in place for us to provide global production volume for FaceCradle,” said Dylan J. Doherty, President of FaceCradle USA.

“We attended last year’s show with a prototype of FaceCradle, so we’re excited to have a larger booth during our re-launch of the production version of FaceCradle in Las Vegas,” Doherty added. “We’re also looking forward to formalizing some relationships with retailers and wholesalers during the show.”

The International Travel Goods Show showcases products from the travel and tourism industries. Show hours Wednesday and Thursday, April 5 and 6, are from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and on Friday, April 7 from 8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.

FaceCradle was developed by company co-founders David Scrimshaw and Roz Ruwhiu through their own experiences trying to get sleep on long, cross-country and overseas flights. Both Scrimshaw and Ruwhiu will be attending the travel goods show.

Unlike other travel pillows on the market, FaceCradle is designed for the way people actually sleep, with the head in a horizontal position. FaceCradle features five sleep modes for travelers that provide multiple options for comfort – including a deep-sleep mode that simulates the natural horizontal sleeping position for the head, even while the traveler is seated in a vertical, economy-class seat.

The company’s viral Facebook video, which received more than 18 million views when the product was introduced in 2016, demonstrates that FaceCradle’s comfort positions conform to nearly any kind of seating situation aboard a plane, bus, train or even in a car.
