ISPA was formed in 1915 by 39 bedding manufacturers to accomplish the following key objectives:
- Encourage uniformity in industry standards and government regulations
- Elevate the image of the industry and its products
- Disseminate vital information
- Fight for members’ common interests
- Bring the members of the industry together
From its inception nearly 100 years ago, the International Sleep Products Association (ISPA) has been committed to supporting the mattress industry through active public policy, public affairs, and education initiatives. It has grown to represent the full bedding industry on a host of commercial, health, safety and environmental issues, and serves to provide a positive image for the sleep products industry.

ISPA currently represents mattress manufacturers and bedding component, machinery and service suppliers in countries around the world. ISPA members range from multinational mattress and sleep products manufacturing companies to small, family-owned operations. This diverse membership base gives ISPA strong credibility and influence as the voice of the sleep products industry.
The Association provides a wide range of legislative, informational, and educational services that benefit its entire membership. Many of these services are exclusive to ISPA members; others seek to increase awareness of the industry’s contribution to the health and quality of everyday life to targeted audiences, the media, and the general public.
