New York, NY (PRWEB) November 19, 2012
Americord Registry is pleased to announce that it is a sponsor of Big City Moms' prestigious Biggest Baby Shower Ever event, which will take place on Monday, November 19th at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City. This educational and entertaining event will give expectant mothers in New York access to information about the latest products and services offered by 100 of the best companies in the baby care industry. At the event, Americord will offer a raffle for free cord blood banking with 20 years of storage as well as a brand new iPhone 5.
“We are thrilled to partner with such an outstanding organization as Big City Moms, and we appreciate this unique opportunity to get to know more moms-to-be right here in our hometown of New York City,” said Martin Smithmyer, President and CEO of Americord Registry. “New Yorkers will be hearing from us a lot more in coming days and months as we do our best to address the needs of parents-to-be in our community.” While the raffle for cord blood banking and an iPhone 5 makes things fun, Americord has a very serious purpose in attending as well. The devastating hurricane that brought economic hardship to much of the northeast at the beginning of November was a reminder that people from all walks of life in all parts of the country can find themselves facing events that impact their budget. Americord is committed to making the highest quality cord blood banking as affordable as possible so that more families can benefit from it.
By keeping its sales and marketing budget low, Americord is able to provide cord blood banking for approximately half the price of its competitors while still meeting or exceeding the highest quality standards in the industry. Leading cord blood banks typically spend upwards of 50% of their revenue on marketing efforts, whereas Americord spends closer to 5% - and those savings are passed directly through to customers. A leader in the industry, Americord is one of only two companies that enables parents-to-be to preserve stem cells from three sources available when a baby is born: umbilical cord blood, umbilical cord tissue, and placenta tissue.
