LOS ANGELES — Dr. Sadie Allison, founder of Tickle Kitty, Inc., will host the 2013 Storerotica Awards on July 15 in Burbank, Calif., during the ANME Founders Show.
Recognizing excellence in the adult retail community, the Storerotica Awards lauds those in both the brick-and-mortar storefront, distributing and manufacturing levels. This year, 10 categories will be honored, including Novelty Company of the Year, Distributor of the Year, Hot Product of the Year and Retailer of the Year (chain locations), among others. The pre-nominating site is currently open to industry professionals. The Final Storerotica Awards ballot will be online only beginning in May.
Allison is author and publisher of a line of how-to sex-help books available to adult retailers. Her books include Tickle His Pickle, TOYGASMS!, Ride 'Em Cowgirl!, Tickle Your Fancy and her newest, Tickle My Tush.
“I’m very excited to be hosting this year’s Storerotica Awards,” Allison said. “Celebrating those who continue to make this industry extraordinary is a unique opportunity for me. I’m looking forward to this special evening.”
The Clearwater, Fla.-based Storerotica magazine for the third straight year has partnered with the producers of the Adult Novelty Manufacturers Expo (ANME) as event host for the 2013 Storerotica Awards Show.
The ANME Founders Show will return to the Marriott Burbank Airport July 13-15, showcasing the latest products from top adult toy and novelty manufacturers. In addition to the awards gala being held on the evening of July 15, Storerotica will be providing press coverage for adult retail store owners and buyers.
“No other convention represents pleasure products better than the ANME Founders Show," said Kristofer Kay, editor of Storerotica. “Since buyers and vendors rarely get the chance to congregate like they do here, the Storerotica Awards once again strengthens this bond by honoring those who represent the best in the industry. Presenting at such a distinguished event such as ANME not only helps reflect the totality our industry, but also celebrates the continual innovation and camaraderie found within.”
