Sports Licensing & entertainment Marketplace
Sports Licensed and Tailgate Industry Green-Light January 2008 Show
Buyers, Sellers & Leagues Confirm Need for Strong Trade Event

Time is money. And when there is money to be made in the licensed sports business, timing is important. These two ideas converged in discussions with licensors, licensed manufacturers and licensed buyers in the days following the Sports Licensing & Entertainment Marketplace and Tailgate • Picnic Show, which debuted in Las Vegas last November.

The result of these talks was a clear, across-the-board consensus: The industry wants and needs a robust annual trade event.

Thus the next Sports Licensing & Entertainment Marketplace and Tailgate • Picnic Show will be held Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, January 16 to 18, 2008 at a new venue, the Sands/Venetian Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Adjustagrill in action.

The Adjustagrill Provides Dual Usage for Tailgaters Everywhere
June 26, 2007

There are 1,001 cooking devices on the market for tailgaters, and each boasts its own unique design and features. Greg Sherry feels his Adjustagrill offers something that no other product can match: the ability to house a big, warming fire that meets all state and federal requirements. “The Adjustagrill is perfect for winter use,” he says. “The fire pan can be set up in a parking lot for tailgating or used on a picnic table for Dutch Oven cooking.”

Sherry came up with the idea for the Adjustagrill and started his company back in 1994. Eventually, he chose to farm out manufacturing overseas and handle warehousing and distribution himself. His target market is outdoor specialty retail, but he has found that the Adjustagrill is a great fit for the tailgating industry.

The Adjustagrill sits six inches off the ground, making it effective and efficient for warming fires.

“It appeals especially to football and hockey fans,” says Sherry. “With the Adjustagrill, you don’t build just a pleasure fire, you build a purpose fire that provides real warmth. It was specifically designed for environmentally sensitive permitted areas where ground fires are not allowed.”

Sherry knows something about the need for a sturdy fire. He grew up in Minnesota and does a lot of white water rafting and camping. For ease of transport, Sherry created a convenient carrying case for the Adjustagrill. “We plan to follow with a complete accessory kit,” he says.

“The Adjustagrill is designed for anyone who wants to make campfire cooking easier and safer,” adds Sherry. “Outdoor cooking was never made easier! Just set it up and you're ready to eat. Its patented design adjusts to cook a variety of food, and the Adjustagrill was made for easy setup, easy cooking, and easy storage.”
