WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. — After a several-year hiatus, five of the largest manufacturers of adult products are bringing its flagship expo back to Southern California — The ANME Founders Show — to be held July 10-12.

What was once known as the Adult Novelty Manufacturers Expo (ANME) is now billed as “the Show and Tell in Adult Novelties,” and its attendance at the Woodland Hills Marriott will be limited to exhibitors and buyers for distributors and retailers.

“For years, our colleagues have been urging us to bring back the show they fondly remember,” Pipedream Products COO Nick Orlandino said. “The ANME Founders Show was born out of a commitment to present a product showcase with the quality and intimacy our segment of the adult industry deserves. We’re excited to welcome retailers, distributors and manufacturers from around the country.”

The show is slated to host about 40 exhibitors and show organizers boast more than 500 attendees have registered to walk the floor.

“It’s a great place for manufacturers and qualified buyers to network, preview new products and get a first-hand look at what the future of our industry looks like,” said Val Jones, ANME Founders Show sales executive. “This will be more than just a recreation of the original; we’re returning to the spirit and class of the early shows and raising the bar.”

In addition to product showcases and hospitality, attendees are invited to attend an ANME Founders Cocktail Party and Reception on July 10, as well as the Welcome Dinner and Pool Party on July 11.

“Attendees are going to reconnect with lots of old friends — and probably make some new ones,” Orlandino said.

Pipedream, along with Doc Johnson, California Exotic Novelties, Nasstoys and Topco Sales, are hosting the event.
