LOS ANGELES — XBIZ is pleased to introduce the latest leading companies to join the growing list of exhibitors to showcase their goods and services at the inaugural XBIZ Retail Expo on Feb. 9-11 at the Sofitel Hotel in Los Angeles.

With the goal of bringing “affordable luxury” to everyday women, Baci Lingerie made a spectacular debut at the International Lingerie Show in April, most recently opened its first mono-brand store in Hungary and has dominated trade shows worldwide throughout the year with over-the-top publicity for its high-end brand.

“We are extremely pleased and excited to be part of and sponsoring the XBIZ Retail Expo,” said Robert Rosen, chief operating officer of Baci Lingerie. “XBIZ has done an incredible job bringing together all segments of the adult retail marketplace together to display and discuss issues and topics that affect our industry and we are proud to be a part of it.”

Baci Lingerie’s exclusive U.S. partner Avelli, a leader in brand management and strategy, also will participate as an exhibitor at the XBIZ Retail Expo.

“We are thrilled to be an exhibitor in the first XBIZ Retail Show under our new moniker Avelli, Inc.,” Avelli President and founder Randall Hughes said. “This show gives us the opportunity to reinforce our position as a premier intimate lifestyle brand management firm. We look forward to bringing exciting growth opportunities to our trading partners and building on our strong partnerships as we continue to increase our brands’ visibility in the years to come.”

Fleshlight, which is already a Platinum Sponsor of the 2011 XBIZ Awards and Gold Sponsor of XBIZ LA, also has signed on as an exhibitor of the XBIZ Retail Expo.

"We are excited about the upcoming trio of XBIZ events,” said Brian Shubin, executive vice president of Interactive Life Forms. “We've been thoroughly impressed with XBIZ LA and the XBIZ Awards so, it was an easy decision for us to support their first annual XBIZ Retail event. We're looking forward to catching up with our industry friends as well as showing everyone what we will be up to in 2011."

Paradise Marketing, an industry pioneer in the personal care category, has been supplying adult and mainstream retailers with the top brands in condoms, lube and other sexual health products, for more than three decades.

"The XBIZ event offers the industry a comfortable venue to meet and discuss new products and new marketing programs that will make 2011 a more robust and profitable year for everyone in the adult business,” Paradise Marketing President Dennis Paradise said. “Paradise Marketing sees a leader's role in supporting this show."

Major adult distributor East Coast News also has joined the XBIZ Retail Expo as an exhibitor. The company, which was founded 15 years ago, serves thousands of clients that range from brick-and-mortar stores to large-scale chain operations. With three centrally located distribution warehouses, ECN is known for exceptional value, superior customer service and prompt delivery.
