LOS ANGELES — Industry giants East Coast News (ECN) and International Video Distributors (IVD) were named 2013 Distributor of the Year – Full Range by XBIZ on Friday night at the gala XBIZ Awards ceremony.
Honoring the adult industry’s most influential players, the event took place at the luxurious Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Century City, Calif. Rounding out the evening, ECN’s marketing materials received the XBIZ honor for Marketing Campaign of the Year.
“This is a tremendous honor,” explained IVD/ECN’s Brand Manager, Ken H, who accepted the Distributor of the Year trophy on stage. “We owe it all to our customers and vendor partners, all of whom we proudly work very hard to serve. We are thrilled our efforts have been recognized by XBIZ. Thanks to the entire XBIZ team for this award.”
For the past year, all ECN and IVD advertising and internal/external communications have prominently included the slogan “Our World Revolves Around You,” a phrase that exemplifies the company’s dedication to its partners and clients. Based on their familiar globe logo, the “Our World” campaign was awarded the prize for Marketing Campaign of the Year in the Pleasure Products sector.
“Again, we need to extend a sincere thank you to the XBIZ staff for recognizing this campaign,” continued Ken H. “To everyone here at IVD and ECN, the phrase serves as a reminder of why we are successful."
IVD and ECN distribute the industry’s largest selection of adult videos and products, and operate out of three locations nationwide – New Jersey, California and Florida. For more information, retailers can contact their account representative or visit ivd1.com or ecn.com.
